Cape Town - Dusan Tadic says Southampton players should feel ashamed that they are struggling for Premier League survival this season.

The Saints are third from bottom with two points from safety and the long-serving midfielder wants the players to dig deep to help the team get out of trouble in the remaining matches.

Despite losing 3-0 to West Ham last weekend, the midfielder is adamant the team can still get it right to avoid the drop.

Tadic told Sky Sports News: “We should be ashamed that we are in this kind of situation. We still have seven games to go and we need to try to get out of this situation, it doesn't matter how, we need to do something.

“The first thing is we need to fight together and try to win matches, this is most important. It doesn't matter how, we need to find solutions to win games.”

The midfielder has also praised the arrival of Mark Hughes as the manager of the club, saying the former Manchester City boss has made an immediate impact.

Tadic added: “I think he has had a big impact, you can see on the training pitch that we are better.

“We put more energy into our training sessions and the environment is also better and because of that I was very mad that we let the game go against West Ham because we were in a good way.

“We just need to keep training as well as possible because we have very good coaches and training sessions and we need to get benefits from that.”

The Saints will travel to London on Sunday for a fixture against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

Kick-off is at 15:15 (SA time).
