Sky's the limit for Saints
Mauricio Pochettino declared “the sky’s the limit” for his soaraway Saints after their draw at Manchester United.
With a victory over Liverpool at Anfield also under their belt this season, Saints are starting to make the football world sit up and take notice.
A delighted Pochettino, pictured left, said: “Why not? We want to keep on believing and that we can carry on doing well.
“It’s a very positive run that we’re in at this moment.
“We don’t set ourselves any limit. The sky’s the limit.
“We just want to take each game as it comes and when it comes to matchday 38 at the end of the season see how high we are in the table.”
Saints worked tirelessly at Old Trafford after falling behind to a Robin Van Persie goal in the first half and walked away with a hard earned point.
“I think my team today was very brave,” said Pochettino.

“I think getting a very good win at Anfield and a very positive draw here is amazing for this team.
“I think it definitely certifies the quality of this project and how we want to move forward.
“For the younger players it gives them so much belief that they can go on and do amazing things.”
United have not hit the heights yet under David Moyes that they so regularly did with Sir Alex Ferguson in charge but Pochettino insisted his team well worthy of their draw on their own merit.
“Never do I face a game or start a game in a fearful way,” he explained.
“I think in the first four minutes of the first half we kept them in their half and they weren’t even able to get out.
“During the first 20 minutes of the game we were completely dominating Manchester United. “When we conceded the goal we had some doubts and didn’t know how to get on from conceding that goal.
“I think we had overall a very good second half.
“It’s normal in the second half they would push to try and get a second goal but we kept on believing in how we wanted to play and our philosophy of football and then in the last five minutes of the game we were pushing to get the win.
“I think we did very well in the second half.”
