Southampton 2-3 Chelsea: 5 Talking Points

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

It was only after Giroud's introduction in the 61st minute that Chelsea took charge, as the France global scored twice either side of an emphatic Eden Hazard finish to wrap up an unlikely victory and leave Southampton languishing in the bottom three. We went 2-0 down but had the right spirit to come back and win.

Following Southampton's earlier defeat Palace were 3-2 winners over Brighton, with all five goals inside the first half. Southampton are 18th on 28 points in the league table.

Marcos Alonso was then lucky to escape a red card on the stroke of half-time for catching Long on the calf with a studs-first challenge.

If you don't have something in your heart, it's very hard to win the game, but today I'm very happy with the second half, and very disappointed with the first. "When the momentum shifts against us we can't get a platform and wait until the momentum swings our way again". With AP Photos.Chelsea has scored three goals in eight minutes, including two from substitute Olivier Giroud, in a stirring comeback from 2-0 down to beat Southampton 3-2 in the English Premier League. I am disappointed that the officials didn't see it.

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

But, with Mark Hughes seemingly on course for a first league victory as Southampton manager since arriving on 14 March, Giroud sparked a listless Chelsea into life.

Chelsea still needed Courtois to secure just a fourth league win in 12 games in 2018 as the 'keeper got down well to deny Josh Sims as the game entered stoppage time.

"I'm very proud of what we did today".

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

"If you don't have something in your heart, it's very hard to come back and win".

"This the most important thing and we must finish the season with this spirit".
