Dušan Tadić says Southampton must build momentum in the Premier League, starting with a win over Leicester City this weekend at St Mary’s.
Claude Puel’s men are looking to arrest a run of four games without a win, after their midweek success over Norwich City in the Emirates FA Cup.
While that will have served to boost confidence in the squad, Tadić knows that league form must improve.
“Every win is really important it was good that we didn’t play extra-time. We’re happy we won and we’re into the next round, but we need to win Sunday – it’s simple,” Tadić said.
“It’s difficult. We were never in this situation where we lose four times in a row, but we need to stay together to try to show we are still good. We need to win matches.
“Everyone is close in the table and you need to win matches, take points and then we will try to move up the division again.”
