Southampton 2-3 Chelsea: Giroud rescues Blues (2:47)

Southampton 2-3 Chelsea: Giroud rescues Blues (2:47)

The Blues came back from 2-0 down to beat Southampton at the weekend. The Saints initially belied their lowly position in the Premier League, taking the game to the Blues in the first half and deservedly going in front through Dusan Tadic.

"Our first half was very negative", said Chelsea boss Antonio Conte. "This is the best way for a player to show that they are a fantastic professional".

He has also insisted that his players must share the responsibility for the decline that means last season's Premier League champions are unlikely to qualify for the Champions League this year.

Since his move to Chelsea in the summer of 2012, he has made 203 Premier League appearances and has won the league title twice - in the 2014/15 and the 2016/17 seasons.

'It was tough for us, the second goal was a hard moment but the most important thing if you concede one or two goals is to never give up and believe in our quality and play our game. The beginning of the game is not what we wanted and is not what we were expecting but in football you always have the opportunity to step up and bounce back.

"I must be honest, I didn't see this", Conte said.

But Giroud showed what he is capable of with a courageous near post header from Alonso's pinpoint cross to get Chelsea back in the game with his first league goal for the club and spark an incredible fightback 20 minutes from time.




Spurs came out fighting in the second half but City withstood long period of pressure, before Guardiola's changes stemmed their opponent's flow.

They dominated the first half and went ahead in the 22nd minute when captain Vincent Kompany's long pass released Jesus to score in clinical fashion.

"We've shown great character, great team spirit".

Despite appearing to be in the ascendancy early on, Chelsea's lack of craft meant Southampton were comfortable, and that encouragement ultimately led to the home side breaking the deadlock.

"Our first half was very negative". However, with the season coming to end, the players need to give it their all to make to close the season for the fans of the club who have been with them through thick and thin.

Olivier Giroud has insisted that it was an "easy decision" to leave Arsenal and join Chelsea during the January transfer window. The Frenchman has now earned the right to get a starting place in the cup semi final next Sunday against the same opposition.
