The British arm of the German discount supermarket said it enjoyed its most successful Christmas trading period ever, with sales on a year-on-year basis up 10 percent in December. "We believe we have our destiny in our own hands".
It said the brand had a strong online performance over the Black Friday period, with 65% of sales taken via the web.
Having outperformed its main peers for so long, Sainsbury faces more of a challenge to maintain its growth, according to Coupe.
While the market has hailed this as good news, the U.K.'s No. 2 supermarket could be in for a challenging year. Toys and technology including Fitbits, mobile phones and computers all sold well.
Best-sellers included Taste the Difference party food and prosecco, while across Argos there was strong demand for the iPad mini, PlayStation 4 computer games consoles and Fitbits.
"Sainsbury's offered customers greater quality food, choice and value than ever before, across all channels. However, we are well placed to navigate the external environment and remain focused on delivering our strategy".
