Jay Rodriguez broke the deadlock inside 20 minutes and Adam Lallana quickly added a second as Saints made a great start at White Hart Lane.

However, Christian Eriksen scored either side of half-time to bring Spurs level and Gylfi Sigurdsson's injury-time strike left Southampton with nothing to show for their efforts.

Pochettino still believes the future is bright for Southampton, however, after performing well against a Tottenham side with a much stronger squad.

"I think Tottenham are a team that are actually equipped to be a candidate to win the league," Pochettino told Sky Sports.

"For Southampton, we are a young team with young players, so it is a long-term project for Southampton.

"Despite that, I thought it was an even-sided game, but we are disappointed with today's result."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
