Pochettino's Saints held by Toffees

Published Add your comment

If any Southampton fans brought along their white handkerchiefs to St Mary's, they remained firmly tucked away in their pockets as the Saints played out an entertaining goalless draw against Everton in Mauricio Pochettino's first game in charge.

A planned protest against the acrimonious sacking of Nigel Adkins with the waving of handkerchiefs, a tradition amongst restless Spanish fans, failed to materialise as Southampton outplayed the Toffees for much of their Barclays Premier League encounter, with only their finishing letting them down.

Rickie Lambert, recalled by Pochettino, came closest to breaking the deadlock when he saw his 25-yard free-kick rattle Tim Howard's right-hand post.
