Saints legend Matt Le Tissier has praised the "outstanding" contribution of Nathan Redmond to the team.

Redmond, who moved to Southampton from Norwich City last summer, has been in fine form recently, with his last outing seeing him score twice in the 4-3 victory at Watford.

That followed on from a number of eye-catching displays, including in the EFL Cup final, against Manchester United.

His efforts have not gone unnoticed by Le Tissier, who is encouraged by the improvement he has seen from him.

"Nathan's form the last few games has been outstanding," he said. "He was probably one of those in the first part of the season who was probably a little disappointed in some of the positions he was getting into and not finishing.

"But it now seems like he's found his shooting boots a little bit and is looking dangerous in front of goal, which is great."

Redmond has not been the only attacking player in great form for Saints in recent weeks, and Le Tissier has enjoyed seeing the intent they have been showing in the past couple of games, with their last three alone resulting in ten goals.

"It's been a bit of a change from the first half of the season," he said. "It's great to see us scoring goals.

"Also, I think, a little bit to do with that is the lack of changes the last few games and people getting used to each other – I think that's helped."
