Mauricio Pochettino expressed his delight at watching Southampton return to winning ways with a commanding victory at Cardiff City.

Jay Rodriguez slid in at the back post to put the visitors 1-0 up in the 14th minute, before his close-range volley doubled their advantage six minutes later.

Rickie Lambert then made it 3-0 from close range inside 27 minutes to seal victory and end the Saints’ six-game run without a victory.

“The victory today was fully deserved. We were amazing today, we were excellent,” said Pochettino, whose side remained in ninth place in the Premier League table.

“It was important to regain our confidence and not concede a goal. It had been nine games without a clean sheet so today was important for our confidence.

“We were precise and my players were very brave.

“There are many games coming so it was important for our confidence especially after six games with no win. It was important to get that winning feeling back.”
