DUSAN Tadic is hoping to repeat last season's Old Trafford heroics - with a third goal in as many games.

The Serbian super sub came off the bench to score in the back-to-back wins against Watford and West Brom and is now preparing to return to the scene of the most memorable of his 11 Saints goals.

Tadic, who scored the winner six minutes after replacing Eljero Elia as Saints recorded their first victory at Manchester United for 27 years last January, is looking forward to returning to Old Trafford.

He said: "Happy memories, that was really good. It’s one of the best memories, for me and for the club.

"It would be nice for it to be the same result but we need to respect Man Utd. They are one of the biggest teams and also play good football.

"They have played good games and sometimes they have not been so lucky. It’s always hard to play against them. We will go with confidence but you never know with football.

"The most important thing is that we play well as a team. Then it is easier for everyone to show what they can do."

Tadic is looking forward to playing against former Saints teammate Morgan Schneiderlin after a win against West Brom that will be remembered for James Ward-Prowse's spectacular fifth-minute free-kick.

"The first goal from Prowsey was important," he said. "It opened the game, made it a different game."

Tadic scored the third goal within ten minutes of replacing Sadio Mane, completing a great move that featured a volleyed backheel from Shane Long and a cute reverse pass from Steve Davis.

"It made life more easy," said Tadic. "The game was finished after that. It was a nice ball from Dave-o and it was a good finish. It was a good goal. The most important thing is we took three points.

"It was an important week for us: two wins, two clean sheets."

This week began with Charlie Austin a Saints player.

"He’s another really good striker," added Tadic. "It’s nice always to have a lot of good players. This makes competition better."
