Chelsea found 'fire in their eyes' for Southampton fightback - Antonio Conte

Chelsea found 'fire in their eyes' for Southampton fightback - Antonio Conte

Goals from Dusan Tadic and debutant Jan Bednarek had put Saints on the way to a crucial three points but Giroud headed a previously listless Chelsea back into a game that had appeared nearly out of reach, Eden Hazard levelled shortly afterwards and then the France hitman struck again - all inside an eight-minute spell.

"Don't forget we went 2-0 down, but we had the right spirit to come back and win the game".

First, Giroud expertly met a cross from Marcos Alonso, who was lucky to be on the pitch after stamping on Shane Long in the first half, and then he fired in a low shot for his first league goals for Chelsea.

The Saints entered the match in 18th position in the table, and having not won a league game on home soil in 2018.

"I am happy for Giroud".

"Now he has good fitness and I try to make the best decisions for the game".

'I think we begged.

However, Conte's opposite number Mark Hughes was unhappy that Alonso had escaped a red card and has called for the player to receive a retrospective ban ahead of next week's FA Cup semi-final between the two clubs. I am disappointed that the officials didn't see it. They were all within a 10 or 15 metre radius.

The Premier League's leading scorer joined Roger Hunt and Ian Rush in the 40 club with a brilliant second-half header that added to Sadio Mane's early strike and preceded Roberto Firmino's late goal.

But Giroud showed what he is capable of with a fearless 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. Thankfully he is okay, he just got a rake down the calf. It was hard for us to come back so we must be pleased by the desire we showed.

"You've got to get the big decisions right".

"We are having a hard season and we know this, but especially in this situation I think you can see the men before the players". "As long as it is mathematically possible to finish in the top four we will keep battling".
