Premier League - Pochettino not concerned by form

Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino is not concerned about Southampton's lack of form following another loss, this time against Chelsea.

The reverse meant that the Saints have won only one of their last nine Premier League games.

They could have gone ahead had it not been for some last-ditch tackling from Ashley Cole, John Terry and Gary Cahill.

But their finishing let them down.

Talk of Saints pushing for a surprise European spot has diminished following their recent poor form, but Pochettino is not a worried man.

"Rome wasn't built in a day," the Southampton manager said.

"We have been facing some of the top sides and that has been tough.

"We are a young side and we are still learning. We have to keep on believing on our style of play."
