Dusan Tadic is excited by the chance to play away from home on Sunday against Brighton, expecting to revel in the space provided by facing opponents who have to impress their home fans.
The Saints have so far faced a plethora of packed defences at St Mary's where they have had 6 of their 9 PL games so far this season. In spite of "home advantage", Southampton have really struggled to get past these defensive sides and have just 2 wins at home. The chance to travel to Brighton is thus exciting for the Serbian playmaker: "It is always easier to attack when you have more space because these kind of teams are really strong and powerful. They defend with everyone back and it’s not easy to break them down." However, Tadic also thinks that his team have managed to move on from the blunt showings in the early weeks: "I think what is different now is our aggression. From the first moment, we want to score goals." He suggested part of this change has been a marked increase in their tempo. He believes this new attitude will help Southampton score more goals, win more games, and climb the PL table. Wed, Oct 25, 2017 12:11:00 PM
