Giroud leads Chelsea to overcome Southampton 3-2

Eden Hazard Chelsea West Ham Premier League

The victory kept alive fifth-place Chelsea's slim hopes of qualifying for next season's Champions League, with seven points now separating Chelsea from Tottenham and Liverpool above them. It seems as though the whole team has given up this season after their elimination from the Champions League and their 3-1 defeat to Spurs earlier this month.

Chelsea staged a late comeback on the South Coast, as they scored three goals in eight second-half minutes to overturn Southampton's 2-0 goal lead.

Huddersfield and Crystal Palace took full advantage with vital wins over Watford and Brighton to leave Southampton five points off safety.

Mark Hughes' relegation-threatened Saints then doubled their lead on the hour mark. I play for a long time, so I am on the pitch to enjoy.

Roberto Firmino then rounded off a flawless afternoon for Liverpool's prolific front three by drilling low past Begovic for a third in stoppage time.

Giroud feels they Blues can still make the Champions League places.

"It's better for me to play very bad and at the end of the game we win 1-0".

Frenchman Olivier Giroud scored two goals after entering the game in the 61st minute, and the third goal came by Belgian Eden Hazard in the 75th minute of the game.

"I'm very happy for him [Giroud]", said Conte in his post-match press conference.

Chelsea has been out of sorts lately with the team struggling to win games.

But when it was put to him that Chelsea's spirited response at St Mary's was a sign that his players are still fighting for him, Conte replied: "I can't accept this [concept], because I was a player".

Dusan Tadic's opener, a placed effort following Ryan Bertrand's marauding run, and Polish defender Jan Bednarek's left-footed shot looked to be lifting Saints out of the bottom three.
