Pochettino wary of Swansea threat

4 October 2013 19:09

Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino is not expecting an easy time against Swansea City on Sunday despite their draining run of fixtures.

The Welsh side have played three games in as many different competitions in the space of eight days recently, with the last of them seeing the team continue their UEFA Europa League campaign.

The Premier League team claimed a 1-0 win in that fixture on Thursday against Swiss side St Gallen to continue their perfect start to the competition, but they now have little recovery time ahead of the weekend.

Their schedule does not mean anything to the Southampton boss, though, with the Argentine insisting that they will be as much of a threat as ever.

"Swansea have had enough time to recover from their Europa League match," he said. "We expect them to be a very competitive side.

"Every manager is different, every club has their own brand of football. Swansea are playing very good attractive and attacking football.

"I faced Michael Laudrup as a player and a manager in Spain. As managers we share a simple philosophy about how our teams play."

The manager did confirm, however, that they will need to wait on the fitness of star defender Luke Shaw, who has been struggling with illness during the week.

It is hoped he will be fit for the clash as Southampton gun for their fourth win in a row in all competitions.
