Olivier Giroud scripts great Chelsea escape against Southampton

Conte managed to change Chelsea's fortunes by bringing on Olivier Giroud who scored two goals, either side Eden Hazard's strike, as Chelsea ran out 3-2 winners.

The London club said an "unprecedented response" from fans to an appeal for information regarding the alleged incidents had led them to take their case to UEFA, European football's governing body. Chelsea took all three points in their race for a Champions League spot, while Southampton sit three points from safety and are in heavy danger.

They are chasing the Reds once again this term as well as Tottenham, but face a huge fight in achieving their target. With just one win from their last 20 Premier League matches, their hopes of staying in the division are looking very bleak indeed right now.

The former Chelsea left-back powered past Cesar Azpilicueta into the box and squared for Tadic to sidefoot home for his first league goal since December.

The Blues got a double from striker Olivier Giroud, who moved from rival Arsenal in January, and essentially completed the final phase of his move to Stamford Bridge today.

Having gone down 2-0 through goals from Dusan Tadic and Jan Bednarek, it should have been curtains for the Blues.
