Pochettino took over from Nigel Adkins in January and looks to have cemented Southampton's place in the Premier League for next season.

But the 41-year-old believes Saints could be in a better position and admits they should have picked up more points.

Pochettino said: "I'm pleased and satisfied with how the team has been playing, but you always need a bit of dissatisfaction.

"All the games that I manage - whether they are at home or away - are winnable, so I want to win."

Meanwhile, Pochettino is relishing the prospect of facing Michael Laudrup again when Southampton travel to Swansea on Saturday.

The ex-Espanyol boss faced Laudrup when the Swansea manager was coaching in Spain.

"I'd like to congratulate Michael Laudrup because he's having an amazing season," said Pochettino.

"Swansea's brand of football is established, and quite similar to what we're trying to achieve at Southampton."

"The style of football he plays at Swansea suits him, and it is similar to the style he was playing in Spain."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
