The Saints have made a positive start to the season and lie seventh in the Premier League but they have struggled for goals, scoring just three times in five top-flight matches.

Southampton have conceded just two goals, though, and defeated previously unbeaten Liverpool 1-0 in their last outing to leave their Argentinian manager in confident mood.

"Hopefully this weekend we will be able to get the three points we want," he said.

"There is a big collective effort from all the players to ensure we don't concede goals.

"If you think we're playing well, imagine us when our strikers start scoring goals. We're going to be a lot better.

"Our analysis is that we've created many good chances. Hopefully, in the next game, they will be converted into goals."

Pochettino was also keen to deny suggestions England international Rickie Lambert may be leaving St Mary's in the future.

"There is a lot of expectation placed on him, but we're very relaxed and happy with his contributions," added Pochettino.

"He's been in the starting XI for five games, so I don't understand these sorts of rumours."
