Conte Hails Chelsea "Spirit", "Passion" Vs Southampton; Praises Giroud

Eden Hazard Chelsea West Ham Premier League

Dusan Tadic and Jan Bednarek had put the Saints into a two-goal lead with only 30 minutes to go but a strike from Eden Hazard and a dramatic brace from Olivier Giroud won the game for the Blues.

This came just a week after Rudiger's comments appeared to call into question Chelsea's ability to see out games, after Javier Hernandez's goal denied them another win last week.

One of those players - wing-back Marcos Alonso - was also fortunate to escape without punishment for standing on the back of Southampton forward Shane Long's calf in the first half. Southampton manager Mark Hughes now faces a desperately hard fight to keep his team in the Premier League.

"I'm very happy for him", Conte added when asked about the former Arsenal man's performance. "When the momentum shifts against us we can't get a platform and wait until the momentum swings our way again".

The Southampton boss said: "It was a poor challenge, a really poor challenge". I am disappointed that the officials didn't see it.

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. They were all within a 10 or 15 metre radius.

But Giroud showed what he is capable of with a courageous near post header from Alonso's pinpoint cross to get Chelsea back in the game with his first league goal for the club and spark an incredible fightback 20 minutes from time.

"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".

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. It was hard for us to come back so we must be pleased by the desire we showed.

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