Pochettino, who has admitted he cried when he left St Mary's, will be sitting in the stands against his former club after being hit with a two-match touchline ban following a charge of improper conduct for arguing with referee Mike Dean in the recent loss at Burnley.
"Sure, every fan wants to have as much success as possible but I think we also have our level where we can over-perform, where we make surprising moments".
Pochettino was furious after seeing his side slip too a fourth Premier League game in a row without a win.
"I feel very proud".
We changed a lot from the first half to the second half.
"It's about arrogance in a bad way". But if you play like that in the first half, then play like that in the second half, we're not in the best eight of Europe.

"We put in a good solid performance against Fulham and at Manchester United we played well and should have come away with something more".
"I'm a little bit in shock because I think it's completely unfair", he told a news conference ahead of facing the Saints.
After fellow strugglers Cardiff beat West Ham, Saints' success ensured they remain two points above the bottom three.
Their confidence will also be sky-high after Sunday's result against United at home, with the Emirates also something of a secret fortress, having not tasted defeat there in the league in their last 15 games, since a 2-0 defeat on opening day to Manchester City.
"I take it (Madrid's interest) as something positive, it means someone has noticed that we are doing something right", added the Argentine. We live in the perception and reality.
