Southampton - Chelsea: Giroud pleased to break league duck

Chelsea celebrate againt Southampton

Antonio Conte was scathing of the first-half performance that saw Chelsea trail 2-0 to Southampton on Saturday, but he credited their reaction and "spirit" as the visitors battled back to win 3-2 at St Mary's Stadium. Speaking after the London derby, Rudiger was quoted as saying: "I think in the second half we (could) finish the game (off)".

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

Giroud and Pedro came on right after Chelsea went 2-0 down which was the start of Chelsea's comeback.

If you don't have something in your heart, it's very hard to win the game, but today I'm very happy with the second half, and very disappointed with the first. They played so well for the first 69 minutes and deserved to lead 2-0, but the substitute Olivier Giroud inspired another insane comeback in this memorable week of football.

But Giroud's introduction off the bench in the 61st minute proved the catalyst for Chelsea's comeback, as he pulled one back soon after and then got the victor following Eden Hazard's equaliser.

"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". "No-one deserves this type of season".

I will be getting it corrected once I am done with the Games and back in India ", she said. Saturday was a day of many firsts for India at the 21st Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast.

The Italian also said he did not see the leg-breaking tackle on Shane Long by his defender, Marcos Alonso.

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

Antonio Conte took the blame for a "very disappointing" first half from Chelsea before their late comeback win at Southampton.

"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".

"It was a poor challenge, a really poor challenge", Hughes said. "It should have been a red card, clearly". I was very disappointed.

"You've got to get the big decisions right". "As long as it is mathematically possible to finish in the top four we will keep battling".
