This is the last match of English Premier League action on Saturday. Southampton has had a great start to their season, they’re in 6th place with 15 points. They’re only two points behind second place Chelsea. Fulham sits in 14th with 10 points. A win over Fulham would give Southampton their best-ever start to a season.
“I don’t really think about that,” said manager Mauricio Pochettino, via ESPN FC. “I just think about winning and having my players playing as well and as positively as I want them to play.
“We know it is a very long competition and a very long season and we know that statistics in the end are just statistics but don’t really mean anything, so the most important thing is how high up we are in the table at the end of the season. That’s what really counts.”
They won’t be taking Fulham lightly though.
“Fulham are a team that know how to play football. They have talented players and have been using a 4-2-2 system and defending very deep.”
