Two-goal substitute Giroud inspires Chelsea turnaround

Christian Eriksen's goal shortly before halftime offered fourth-placed Tottenham a route back into the game but Sterling lashed home from close range in the 72nd minute.

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.

"I think we didn't show great spirit, enough desire or will to fight for a good result". It was hard for us to come back so we must be pleased by the desire we showed. It doesn't matter that we won the game 3-2, it was important to see the right reaction and fight in the eyes of my players.

Late in the first half, with Southampton winning 1-0, Alonso appeared to go in high and catch Southampton forward Shane Long's leg with his studs.

"I don't why the desire wasn't there but the coach is the first person to have the fault. I have two good strikers and I try to make the best decision at the start of the game or during the game". 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.

Police had previously said they believed the Hart family died in a suicide plunge from a scenic overlook. She also said her daughter told her after the incident, her teacher put a cold towel on her injuries.

'I think in the second half we (could) finish the game (off). But Antonio Conte would throw on Olivier Giroud in place of Alvaro Morata, and the Frenchman set things in motion with a remarkable header to halve the Saints' lead. It was hard for us to come back so we must be pleased by the desire we showed.

"I must be honest, I didn't see this", Conte said.

"We are having a hard season and we know this, but especially in this situation I think you can see the men before the players".

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.
