Southampton ‘punished’ West Ham - Tadic

Dusan Tadic believes Southampton showed their quality against West Hm United on Sunday.

The Saints defeated the Hammers 3-0 at the London Stadium after a first-half finish from Charlie Austin before Tadic added a second just after the hour-mark and then James Ward-Prowse wrapped it up in injury time.

The victory was Southampton's second in a row which sends Claude Puel's men up to ninth on the table, delighting Tadic in the process.

"I think a really important three points for us," Tadic told the club's official website.

"The first half was really hard to play, we expected a reaction from West Ham because in the last couple of games they have conceded a lot of goals.

"We knew it would be tough in the first fifteen, twenty minutes. This is exactly what happened.

"After that when we scored a goal, I think it was much easier to play.

"We showed that we have a lot of qualities and that we can punish them."
