Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino targets an upset when they travel to Manchester United in the Premier League on Wednesday.

Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino believes that his side are capable of securing the three points when the Saints travel to face Premier League leaders Manchester United on Wednesday.

Pochettino, who took charge of the newly-promoted club on January 18, secured a 0-0 draw against Everton in his first match in charge.

The Spaniard takes his side to face United at Old Trafford in midweek, with the 40-year-old confident of upsetting the odds.

"All games are key and the glamour factor does not dictate how we play, the main thing is that we go out with a winning mentality and we want to win every single game, we always respect our rivals but our aim has to always be to get the three points," he told reporters.

Southampton currently occupy 15th spot in the Premier League table.
