Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino urges his side to remain focused and avoid complacency following their impressive start to the Premier League season.

Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino has warned his side not to get carried away with their good start to the season and remain focused.

The Saints moved up to third place in the Premier League with an impressive 4-1 win over Hull City on Saturday.

The game was Southampton's fourth straight win at home, having lost just once so far this season. However, Pochettino has urged his players to remain grounded to avoid complacency.

"The only thing that can stop us from [continuing this form] is ourselves," he told the club's official website.

"We could be our own worst enemy. We need to keep working with the same work ethic and humility because we will probably be getting a lot of compliments due to how we played today

"We need to make sure that we manage those compliments in a good way and turn them into positive energy to keep up our performances. We can't let it get to our heads – we need to manage expectations and just keep doing what we are doing."

Southampton face Arsenal and Chelsea in their next two Premier League fixtures.
