Chelsea overpower Southampton 3-2 in EPL encounter

Chelsea overpower Southampton 3-2 in EPL encounter

Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte, has told his players not to play to please him but rather show more commitment to the club in the last few weeks of the season.

Chelsea can still win the FA Cup but are 10 points off the top four with only six league fixtures remaining, and their manager distanced himself from the responsibilities he believes lie with the club.

The victory keeps alive fifth-place Chelsea's slim hopes of qualifying for next season's Champions League with seven points now separating the champions from Tottenham and Liverpool above them.

However, Conte's opposite number Mark Hughes was unhappy that Alonso had escaped a red card and has called for the player to receive a retrospective ban ahead of next week's FA Cup semi-final between the two clubs.

Conte admitted his side had delivered a "very disappointing" first-half performance at St Mary's in his post-match interview but added his praise for his players' response.

And with Southampton reeling, Giroud completed Chelsea's comeback when he pounced on a loose ball inside the area to drive into the bottom corner.

"The most important thing is never give up, believe in our quality, play our game and I am proud of what we have done today with our incredible support". "We have never commented about the negative refereeing decisions, especially after the game. We showed the right fire in our eyes".

It was a former Chelsea player who got Saints off to a ideal start as Ryan Bertrand burst past Cesar Azpilicueta down Southampton's left before squaring for Tadic to apply a simple finish. In the second half I saw a great reaction, the right will to fight to win despite the difficultly. I think between the referee, linesman or fourth official that one of them should have seen it.

"We've got to stick our chests out, get on with it, start being men and take responsibility".

He should come good today too, but with all my overseas players featuring either today or tomorrow, he is off bounds for me. Umesh Yadav and Kulwant Khejroliya aren't the best options when it comes to picking up wickets and getting points.
