Chelsea come from 2-0 down to win at Southampton


Olivier Giroud proved to be the catalyst for a remarkable fightback as the Blues came from behind to see off Southampton on a scoreline of 3-2 leaving Mark Hughes' side in deep relegation trouble.

"The first half wasn't good, not only from tactical aspect", the Italian told Sky Sports. "I was very angry for our first half", Conte said. In the second half I saw a great reaction, the right will to fight to win despite the difficultly.

Given the earlier scoreline, it really should have been game over, given that the Blues hadn't come back to win from 2-0 down in a Premier League game in 16 years.

The France international's Chelsea career has been largely frustrating since he joined from Arsenal in January as he has struggled with injuries and had to be satisfied with substitute appearances for the most part, but Conte says Giroud is now in good shape and he is happy with his striking options.

"In the first half we didn't play well but not just that, they put more into the tempo than us".

However, he also credited their recovery, as Olivier Giroud's brace sandwiched a goal from Eden Hazard to complete the comeback and secure Chelsea three points to keep them in the hunt for the top four.

"I'm very proud of what we did today". "No-one deserves this type of season".

We're not convinced. Players have fallen out with Conte in the past and subsequently been frozen out, a la David Luiz.

While Long was able to continue, the tackle easily could have been a straight red card, but referee Mike Dean did not issue any punishment to Alonso for the incident. It's very disappointing that the officials didn't see it.

"We changed something in the second half but the difference was the approach, the desire, the will to fight to try not to lose another game".

Chelsea were not much better immediately after the restart and, after failing to heed a warning courtesy of Shane Long, the Saints' lead was doubled thanks to a fine finish from Bednarek, who was making his first start for the club.
