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

Domingo Copeland | 15 April, 2018, 00:57

Southampton looked to be cruising towards a win that would have lifted them up to 17th and out of the relegation places, at least temporarily, after Dusan Tadic and Jan Bednarek put them two goals ahead after an hour.

Giroud and Pedro came on right after Chelsea went 2-0 down which was the start of Chelsea's comeback. I was very disappointed but we must be pleased by the second half.

The two sides will meet again in the FA Cup semi-finals next weekend, and Southampton will do well to raise themselves for cup glory with their place in the Premier League next season looking ever more precarious.

Marcos Alonso was then lucky to escape a red card on the stroke of half-time for catching Long on the calf with a studs-first challenge. 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.

The France forward's header - his first league goal for Antonio Conte's team - and left-footed drive sandwiched Eden Hazard's left-foot finish as the Blues moved within seven points of fourth-placed Tottenham.

Olivier Giroud came from the bench to score a brace to help Chelsea come from behind to deepen Southampton's relegation fears. They were all within a 10 or 15 metre radius.

"It was a poor tackle, it was a tackle that thankfully had no drastic consequences for Shane".

He said: "I think that the coach has to try to find a different solution, especially if you are losing, but I think the difference was that we played in the second half with great desire not to lose another game". I have been through difficulties in my career, other times I tried to come back stronger.

"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".

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