Tadić pleased with his form

By Gordon Simpson Sat 01 Oct Leicester vs Saints

Dušan Tadić says he is feeling in great shape, following an impressive start to the season.

The playmaker, who signed a new four-year contract in August, has been an influential part of Claude Puel's team so far this campaign.

Tadić, who netted his first goal of the season in last weekend's 3-0 win at West Ham, explained that he is feeling strong, as focus now turns to tomorrow's trip to Leicester City.

"I feel really good physically and this is really important," he said.

"We need just to play from our qualities, then everything is going to come from that.

"We have a good philosophy and we try to play for each other, and that's it I think – that means we will have good results."

While Tadić is feeling good physically, his freshness and that of many of his teammates will be tested this weekend, with a short turnaround from the Europa League trip to Israel, for the 0-0 draw with Hapoel Be'er Sheva.

But he has no doubt that they will be ready to go at King Power Stadium.

"We need to have a good recovery, and this is normal that we travel a lot, but we will be fresh," he said.
