Southampton midfielder Dusan Tadic is feeling satisfied with his recent performances after assisting five goals in the Saints' last two matches.

The 27-year-old is in fine form as the Saints look to finish the season with their highest ever points Premier League points tally.

He provided both assists for midfielder Steven Davis in the 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur last weekend, and also shone against Manchester City in the previous match as the Saints won 4-2 at St Mary’s.

The South Coast side have won three games on the bounce, scoring ten goals in the process and are looking to finish the season by taking another three points from Crystal Palace, in their final game of the season this weekend.

Tadic among nation's best creators

A key reason for the Saints fine form has been the impressive Tadic who has created some excellent goals of late, and the Serb has admitted he is happy with his form.

It is important that I am on the ball," he told Southampton's official website. "I know when I am on the ball  I can show my qualities.”

Tadic is certainly showing his qualities in abundance and is third in the Premier League assists table with 12 assists for the season, behind Arsenal​'s Mesut Özil (18) and Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen (13).   

The Serb was the first signing under current manager Ronald Koeman as he moved to the Premier League from FC Twente in Holland, and has become a fans' favourite for his creative spark on the wings.
