Chelsea come from 2-0 down to win at Southampton

Chelsea come from 2-0 down to win at Southampton

The Blues were trailing 2-0 on Saturday lunchtime when the Frenchman was introduced in place of Alvaro Morata in the 60th minute. 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.

"We changed something in the second half and the difference was the approach and the will to fight".

And Giroud completed the remarkable turnaround soon after, drilling into the bottom-right corner after Hazard's cross was not cleared, dealing a cruel blow to Saints' survival chances as they remain three points adrift of safety.

"In the first half we didn't play well but not just that, they put more into the tempo than us. Do the job and then we see about the other teams".

Christensen was an unused substitute in last week's win over West Ham but will make his 25th Premier League appearances at St Mary's as he replaces Antonio Rudiger to partner Cesar Azpilicueta and Gary Cahill in the three-man defence. I don't like stats, I play for a long time, so I am on the pitch to enjoy.

Olivier Giroud came off the bench to finally kickstart his Chelsea career with his first two Premier League goals for the club either side of Eden Hazard's leveller. The thing is as a striker you need to keep going and keep the confidence high. I work very hard, my staff work very hard, the players work very hard, and especially in this type of situation when there is great difficulty you must show [yourself] to be a man before a player.

"I am disappointed in the first half, I am the first to take the fault for that, but in the second half my players deserved credit".

Giroud has surely earned him himself a starting berth for Thursday night's trip to Burnley. "But I just want to be happy on the pitch, and when you are winning you are happy, and when you are not winning you are not happy".
