Dušan Tadić says Southampton head into their fixture against Tottenham Hotspur still carrying confidence from their last result.
Saints go in search of back-to-back wins after their 3-1 success over neighbours AFC Bournemouth, courtesy of Jay Rodriguez’ brace and Ryan Bertrand’s strike.
That propelled Claude Puel’s men into seventh place in the Premier League, ahead of another difficult test.
Tadić said: “I think we get a lot of confidence now from the last win and that was really important for us because we had the disappointment of going out of Europe and we needed the points.
“It will be a really difficult match because they have a really good team, a good coach and they’re one of the best teams in the league.
“They always have the same philosophy, an attacking-minded philosophy and they want to dominate games and beat their opponents. It will be difficult but we will prepare good for it.”
The Serbian international was recently named the countries player of the year, an accolade he is particularly proud of.
He added: “I spent a few days in Serbia to get that award and I’m really happy because of that. It’s really nice to be the best in your country because we have a lot of good players.
“The ceremony was unbelievable and these days will always stay in your memory!”
