Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino believes his side did enough to beat Aston Villa following their goalless draw at Villa Park
Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that he believes his side did enough to beat Aston Villa following their goalless draw at Villa Park this afternoon.
The Saints dominated possession for the majority of the game, with Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana both being denied by Brad Guzan and the Villa defence on a number of occasions.
"I thought we did enough to win the game but we are lacking luck and clinical edge in front of goal," said Pochettino, according to BBC Sport.
"We started off well, had 70 per cent possession but are not taking chances. We are creating them and look like a team fighting to win the Premier League so I am happy with the effort.
"I saw the handball and I thought it was quite clear, replays also show it was clear but the linesman was close and he didn't even see it."
Southampton currently occupy eighth position in the Premier League table.
