Southampton the best of the rest - Hull's Bruce

Southampton are the best team outside the bigger clubs in the Premier League according to Hull City boss Steve Bruce.

Ahead of Tuesday night's clash between the two sides, Bruce suggests that the Saints have a quality core of players that has the Saints as the 'best of the rest'.

"Apart from the big teams, Southampton are the best of the rest of us," he said.

"They've got individual players who I think will play at the highest level. [Adam] Lallana, [Luke] Shaw, [Jay] Rodriguez, [Rickie] Lambert. Really top-class players.

"If you've grown up with a club like Lallana and Shaw have that helps enormously. One of the great Manchester United teams had five or six who came through the ranks and the whole thing revolved around them for 12-15 years."
