Mauricio Pochettino: 'Everton have copied our style'

Mauricio Pochettino believes that Everton have copied Southampton's style since Roberto Martinez arrived at Goodison Park.

Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino has claimed that Everton have copied their style this season.

The Saints boss believes that it is an honour to see Martinez follow some of the examples set by himself and his coaching staff since he arrived in the Premier League season as a replacement for Nigel Adkins during the previous campaign.

"Ever since we have been here, for a year and five months, we have installed a style and I think Everton have only played our style for a year," Pochettino told reporters ahead of Saturday's meeting between the two sides.

"I think we did it before them, playing this way. We have similar styles and it would be a brilliant achievement if they were to get a top-four place.

"The fact that my club is compared to Everton is an honour and we are going to try and win a game against a very good side."

Martinez revealed his admiration for Pochettino ahead of the game at St Mary's Stadium.
