Pochettino delighted with 18-year-old trio

Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino expressed his confidence in Luke Shaw, Calum Chambers and James Ward-Prowse after the trio of 18-year-olds helped Saints to a 1-0 victory at West Brom yesterday.

All I can say is that I am confident that they are good enough players to play in this league.

I am only taking advantage of the work that has been in place already at Southampton for the last four years - the amazing work that (executive chairman) Nicola Cortese has done in that sense, in bringing young players through the academy system.
