Just 'keep believing': Giroud inspires Chelsea comeback with words, actions, goals

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

After goals from Dusan Tadic and Jan Bednarek put Southampton 2-0 ahead by the 60th minute, Giroud headed in Marcos Alonso's cross to start the fightback in the 70th - nine minutes after coming on for the ineffective Alvaro Morata. If they do, they will rue Saturday's game at St Mary's in which they were coasting at 2-0 until Olivier Giroud came on as a 61st-minute substitute.

"I'm very disappointed for the first half, and I'm the first to take fault for it, but in the second my players deserve credit".

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. I think between the referee, linesman or fourth official that one of them should have seen it. 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. "He has specific characteristics, he played well and I am happy for him".

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

Russian envoy says United Kingdom spying claims about Skripals a "big surprise"
He said that Russian Federation had continued to produce and stockpile small quantities of Novichoks within the last decade. Yulia Skripal earlier this week was discharged after more than a month of hospital treatment following the attack.

The Premier League's leading scorer joined Roger Hunt and Ian Rush in the 40 club with a brilliant second-half header that added to Sadio Mane's early strike and preceded Roberto Firmino's late goal.

"Thankfully he's just about OK, but he's been raked down the calf", Hughes said.

But Giroud showed what he is capable of with a courageous near post header from Alonso's pinpoint cross to get Chelsea back in the game with his first league goal for the club and spark an incredible fightback 20 minutes from time.

"You've got to get the big decisions right".

Republican congresswoman Ann Wagner calls Greitens 'unfit to lead'
The woman said Greitens started kissing her body, tore open her t-shirt and pulled down her trousers - also without her consent. However, a number of leading State officials called for Greitens to resign, including Missouri Auditor Nicole Galloway.

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

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.

"We didn't show great desire and great will to fight".

Red Sox will be without Bogaerts against Yankees
So far, Stanton has three and Judge two. " He's jumping at everything, missing balls by a few feet and not identifying pitches". The 28-year-old has been forced into regular action at the unfamiliar position due to the outfield being decimated by injuries.
