Jay Rodriguez and Adam Lallana netted either side of half-time to lift Saints seven points clear of the relegation zone and heap the pressure on Reading.

Pochettino says he will not be letting his players relax as he wants them to enjoy a strong finish to the season.

"I felt today we played a very good game, but there are still a lot of points to be won," he said.

"Our goal is just the next game against West Ham.

"I am proud of what the players are doing. I think the club has brought me in to do a job and I am doing it well, so I am just pleased overall."

Former Southampton manager Nigel Adkins, now in charge of Reading, met Pochettino at the game and invited him for a drink after playing down any suggestions of ill feeling between the pair.

It is an invitation Pochettino confirmed he accepted, although he hopes Adkins will be providing the wine.

"I don't have to bring the wine - he invited me, no?" the Saints boss said.

"It is a tradition in England that I really admire and appreciate.

"I wished him all the luck in the world out there and told him it was a pleasure to meet him."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
