West Ham 'abused' long ball tactic

Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino is pleased with how his side dealt with West Ham's "abuse of the long ball" after the sides share a 1-1 draw at St Mary's Stadium.

Gaston Ramirez fired Saints into the lead with a clinical finish before Andy Carroll levelled the game with a free-kick, but Pochettino says his side "deserved" to win.

The draw moves the Saints towards safety from relegation on 38 points with five games remaining.
