Football - Pochettino: We were worthy of point

Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino felt his side were unfortunate to end up empty-handed after losing 2-1 at Everton.

It looked as if the Saints would be taking a point home after Gaston Ramirez cancelled out Seamus Coleman's early opener, but Romelu Lukaku had the final say for Everton.

"I thought overall it was a very good game, with both teams going forward and playing good, attacking football," Pochettino said.

"But it is a shame, because we leave with nothing and I think we deserved a lot more from this game.

"My team played very well. There were many phases of the game in which we were actually superior to Everton.

"It is clear that we are a young team, but this team has personality and a certain attacking style, and we try to impose this wherever we are playing, always going for the win.

"When we recover some of the players we have missing, it will make us even stronger."
