Olivier Giroud brace seals Chelsea comeback at Southampton

Eden Hazard talks exclusively to Sky Sports ahead of Chelsea's game with Southampton

Southampton stayed in the relegation zone with five games left. With 70 minutes on the clock, Giroud's header gave Chelsea hope that the comeback was on (and given what went on in Europe this week, they had every right to believe), and Eden Hazard levelled it up just four minutes later. One stirring fightback and two Olivier Giroud goals later, though, it was clear the fallen Premier League champions retain the ability to summon the steel of old.

Nearly immediately on his introduction at St Mary's the France global imposed himself on Maya Yoshida, the wily but physically limited Southampton centre-back who had gleefully bullied Chelsea's record signing.

The Saints eventually broke the deadlock on 22 minutes as former Blues defender Ryan Bertrand surged into the box before picking out Dusan Tadic, who slotted into the far corner.

Meanwhile, Southampton manager Mark Hughes was unhappy that Marcos Alonso had escaped a red card after a high boot caught Shane Long on the back of his calf at the end of the first half.

Whilst Chelsea's creative players were curtailed in the opening half, the Saints started the second term penned into their own half as the visitors looked for an early equaliser to push the pressure back onto the relegation threatened side. "We must be happy we scored three times".

Jan Bednarek doubled Southampton's lead in the second-half.

Despite Chelsea appearing to be out of the contest, an eight minute blitz of quality turned the games on its head, as the Blues clinched victory from the jaws of defeat following an inspired substitute appearance from Giroud.

The comeback was completed by Conte's men with a clinical finish by Giroud off a short free-kick in the final 10 minutes.
