Mauricio Pochettino, who made Davis his first captain at Southampton in 2013, was pleased to see his side bounce back after their north London defeat and climb back above Arsenal in the table.

"Lloris was man of the match and that's something I'm disappointed about".

"We had a few chances but in this best period we almost made an own goal".

"As a player, you want to play in all the big games but the most important thing is the team".

Southampton, who are 18th, are now winless in 13 matches in all competitions, their longest such run since hitting the same number between May and October 1998.

He admitted that he used Brighton midfielder Gross as a sounding board, saying: 'Pascal told me about the league, the clubs in the bottom of the league and (he said) it would be very interesting if I come here and try to take over a club here and perform with this club'.
