Chelsea comeback increases Saints' fears of drop as rivals win

  • Eden Hazard Chelsea Barcelona Champions League

Dusan Tadic capitalised on a limp first-half display from Chelsea to give Southampton the lead at St Mary's and when Jan Bednarek doubled their advantage on the hour mark, Conte's men appeared to be heading for their 10th Premier League defeat of the season. It was hard for us to come back so we must be pleased by the desire we showed.

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.

Leaders Manchester City shrugged off a bitterly disappointing week to beat Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 at Wembley and move to within three points of sealing the Premier League title.

Conte added, he is very happy for Giroud, adding he is in top condition now. "We have never commented about the negative refereeing decisions, especially after the game". This is because it is hard to watch the game images but I think in the past I have never complained about a negative situation for my team.

"When you're a striker you need to keep going, keep the confidence high, even if I play a little less in the last few weeks".

UK Believes Russia Has Spied on Skripals Since 2013
Sedwill's letter also says that Britain has evidence that Russian security services have been monitoring the Skripal family. Skripal, 66, and his daughter, 33, were admitted to a hospital after being found unconscious on a public bench on March 4.

"It's a really poor challenge", he insisted.

The home side had a late half-chance through Josh Sims, but the midfielder fired straight at Courtois as Chelsea secured all the points in spectacular fashion ahead of their meeting in the semi-finals of the FA Cup next weekend. Thankfully he is okay, he just got a rake down the calf.

"Those are key moments and referees have got to get them right, maybe that's why the [Premier League] referees are not at the World Cup this year". If you don't have something in your heart, it's very hard to come back and win.

And although Conte was impressed with the comeback - the first time Chelsea had come from two goals down to win a league game since 2002 - he was keen to ensure people knew his opinion of their first-half display.

"As long as mathematically it's possible, we will believe".
