Giroud sparks Chelsea comeback win

  • Chelsea have submitted a complaint to UEFA regarding the treatment of their fans in Barcelona

Earlier, Chelsea staged a spectacular comeback with three goals in nine second-half minutes to beat Southampton 3-2 and revive their faint hopes of a top-four Premier League finish as Saints remained in the drop zone.

"Our first half wasn't good in a lot of aspects, not only tactically, but didn't show great spirit desire or the will to fight for a good result". I was very disappointed but we must be pleased by the second half. "In the second half, we showed great character, great determination and desire to win the game". It was hard for us to come back so we must be pleased by the desire we showed.

The France international's Chelsea career has been largely frustrating since he joined from Arsenal in January as he has struggled with injuries and had to be satisfied with substitute appearances for the most part, but Conte says Giroud is now in good shape and he is happy with his striking options. They played so well for the first 69 minutes and deserved to lead 2-0, but the substitute Olivier Giroud inspired another insane comeback in this memorable week of football.

Roskomnadzor , the Russian communications and technology watchdog, had demanded that the app be blocked. However, Telegram refused to comply with the demands for reasons of user privacy .

Olivier Giroud scored twice either side of a goal from Eden Hazard.

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. "No-one deserves this type of season".

Asked why the summer signing from Roma was omitted, Conte said: 'It was a tactical decision [to not select him]'. "It should have been a red card in my view".

Knicks NBA head coach search: Jay Wright, David Blatt, Mark Jackson
Apparently, the New York Rangers aren't the only tenant at Madison Square Garden without a head coach these days. Still, Wright would be the biggest "splash" move that the Knicks could make by a considerable margin.

Clearly, with Chelsea down to 10 men and us in first half on the ascendancy, it is a slant on the game really. I have been through difficulties in my career, other times I tried to come back stronger.

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

"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". We need to finish this season in the best possible way.
