Dušan Tadić says Southampton showed what they are all about with their second-half performance in the win at Chelsea.
Saints won 3-1 thanks to goals from Steven Davis, Sadio Mané and Graziano Pellè, with the two decisive goals coming in a dominant second 45 minutes for Ronald Koeman’s men.
Tadić played a key role in helping Saints to their first win at Stamford Bridge since 2002, and the Serbian was delighted with the success.
“It was a really open game and I think we showed in the second half how we can play good football and in the end we deserved to win,” Tadić told reporters after the game.
“It’s a very good victory for us. You are always going to remember this win. But, we just need to keep doing the same things. This is how we need to play (every week).
“You just need to believe in your skills and your team and I think we showed that," he continued.
“We have some more chances and we showed in the second half that we want to win and that was the difference.
“The way how we play was really important, because if we keep playing like this we can beat everyone.”
The goal from Davis on the stroke of half time proved to be a crucial moment in the match according to Tadić, while the midfielder said Koeman just told his side to keep doing what they had been doing at the break.
“That was a really important goal,” said Tadić. “He (Koeman) just said to keep doing the things we’ve been doing and don’t give them the space.
“They have some great players, and if you give them a lot of space they can be really dangerous.”
