Saints boss hails 'deserved' victory

Mauricio Pochettino says his Southampton side "deserved" all three points after their 3-1 victory over Premier League champions Manchester City at St Mary's.

Jason Puncheon gave Southampton the lead with less than ten minutes played before Steven Davis made it 2-0. Edin Dzeko scored for City and a calamitous own goal from Gareth Barry sealed the Saints' win.

Southampton move six points clear of the relegation zone, while the defeat for Champions Manchester City leaves them 12 points behind rivals Manchester United.
