Dušan Tadić is expecting an open encounter when Southampton host Leicester City at St Mary’s on Sunday.

Saints are looking to end a run of four defeats in the Premier League, while Claudio Ranieri’s reigning champions have endured a mixed campaign themselves.

And Tadić knows both will be gunning for all three points to try and start to climb the table again, with the visitors targeting their first away success since April 2016.

He said: “Last season they had an amazing year and they probably know it will be tough as they also have the Champions League.

“It will be a difficult match because they need the points and it will be nice to watch because both teams will really push and hopefully it’s us who gets the points.

“We need to show our fans we can beat everyone at home and we need to beat them.”
