Watch Southampton 2-1 Bournemouth highlights

Tadic at the double to boost Saints’ survival chances

Tadic at the double to boost Saints’ survival chances

The Saints' victory was their first in the Premier League since defeating West Brom in February, while they suffered a damaging defeat earlier this month after throwing away a two-goal lead to lose to Chelsea.

They are now within touching distance of 17th-placed Swansea City, who faced a hard home clash with Chelsea - the team that knocked Saints out of the FA Cup semi-finals - later in the day, which Chelsea went on to win 1-0.

The Cherries, now beaten in three straight matches, knocked on the door for a second equaliser in stoppage-time but the impressive Alex McCarthy pulled off two crucial saves to ensure his side remain buoyant ahead of next weekend's match at Everton, which precedes a defining trip to Swansea.

Dusan Tadic labelled Southampton's 2-1 victory over Bournemouth as "one of the most important wins in our history" as the Saints breathed fresh life into their Premier League survival bid. He sent Mario Lemina on his way before Tadic calmly slotted the ball across Asmir Begovic.

Bournemouth equalized just before the break. A kind bounce off the back of Simon Francis fell for an unmarked King at the far post and he had a simple tap-in to make it 1-1.

Steve Cook made a hash of trying to control the ball with his chest and Tadic pounced on the mistake, robbing the ball and darting into the heart of the Cherries defensive line before blasting the ball past Begovic to restore his team's lead.

Saints manager Mark Hughes was searching for his first league win at the fifth attempt following his appointment last month and Serbia global Tadic quickly justified his inclusion with 25 minutes played.

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe insists his side are not safe yet either.

"Everyone knew the circumstances coming into the game - we needed maximum points".

Southampton have never lost at home to Bournemouth in any competition (W8, D5).
