Southampton star Tadic on one difficulty this season

Southampton star Dusan Tadic has commented on the difficulties his high-flying side face in breaking down opposition teams.

Southampton's Dusan Tadic admits that it can be difficult to get past stubborn defences in the Premier League

The Saints had to be patient this weekend, as Leicester City proved to be a resolute outfit, but two goals from Shane Long provided with them with the victory to continue their brilliant start. 

The South Coast club's form has meant that Leicester were one of a number of teams take a defensive approach against them already this season and, despite their good run of results, Tadic admits that this can be a tough challenge to overcome.

"I think sometimes it is difficult to break teams down but it is good that we keep on going and we move the ball quickly and for the opponent it was difficult," he said to the club's official site. "Finally we scored the goal."

Despite Tadic's insistence that wearing down defensive sides is proving difficult, it would have been hard to guess that from watching his buoyant club.

Southampton's attacking style has been praised heavily by all viewers of Ronald Koeman's men this campaign and in Graziano Pelle they have one of the most in-form strikers in the division. 

The Italian striker already has ten goals in 15 appearances and if he keeps up this goalscoring ratio then few teams will be able to resist Southampton's surges.

One benefit to come out of opposition teams' reluctance to attack the Saints has been that Koeman's men have been able to build a solid base to their success.

The Dutch tactician's team have the best backline in England by a considerable distance so far, having conceded just five times throughout the campaign, and it is this effectiveness at both ends of the pitch which is making them such a force.
