Mauricio Pochettino heaped praise on his Southampton side after watching them secure victory at Hull City to move up to eighth in the Premier League.

Jose Fonte netted the only goal in the 69th minute with a strike awarded via the Goal Decision System after a goalmouth scramble at the KC Stadium.

The win was just the Saints’ fourth in their last 10 top-flight outings, and Pochettino was thrilled with his side’s all-round display.

“We put in an amazing shift,” said Pochettino. “We dominated the entire game from start to finish. We’re very happy with the performance.

“The entire team always plays for each other. That’s the Southampton way.

“It’s very important we take it game by game. We focus on the next game ahead.

“Now we’ll be focussing on the FA Cup game away at Sunderland which is an important match.”

Meanwhile, Hull City boss Steve Bruce had no choice but to praise the visitors for their performance.

“Southampton are an excellent side,” said Bruce. “We had to be at our best and we weren’t. We went too long and direct to our strikers too often.

“We have to be honest – the better team won. We were never away from it [the relegation zone]. We’ve got 12 games to go. We’re in a decent situation. It’s all to play for.”
