Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino tells his players to earn maximum points from their final two games of the Premier League season and avoid relegation.

Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino has told his players to earn maximum points from their final two games of the Premier League season.

No wins in their last four matches have left the Saints four points above the drop zone heading into the final week of the campaign.

"It is clear that we welcome any losses of rival teams that are in similar positions to ours," Pochettino is quoted as saying by "We're always keeping an eye on those sort of games.

"We know that we have two games left; we need to do our job and get the maximum number of points from these last two games."

Southampton return to action on Sunday when they face Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.
