What Giroud Said To Hazard After Replacing Morata In Thrilling Chelsea Comeback

Replays showed Mike Dean must have seen the incident and how the Spaniard escaped a card of any sort was very surprising.

Chelsea's 2-3 win over Southampton at St. Mary's may have made a piece of club history, but it was scarcely a performance for the ages. But Southampton felt that Alonso should have been sent off in the first half for raking his studs down Shane Long's calf.

Olivier Giroud proved to be the catalyst for a remarkable fightback as the Blues came from behind to see off Southampton on a scoreline of 3-2 leaving Mark Hughes' side in deep relegation trouble.

It would be the home side who started better, not allowing Chelsea any room in the opening stages of the match and having the better of the early chances.

It was a former Chelsea player who got Saints off to a flawless start as Ryan Bertrand burst past Cesar Azpilicueta down Southampton's left before squaring for Tadic to apply a simple finish.

That goal would wake Chelsea up, who immediately sought a response to going a goal down.

Alvaro Morata headed over the bar tamely, while Cesc Fabregas saw a hopeful 20-yard effort take a wicked deflection, forcing Alex McCarthy into a solid save.

He bowled with great discipline and variety, tying the KKR batsmen down and taking the early wicket of Robin Uthappa. KKR have been playing three spinners, and given how much trouble Markande caused SRH, that is unlikely to change.

A diving header by Andreas Christensen, went well wide from an cute, angled pass from Hazard was the last action of a disappointing first half as far as Chelsea were concerned.

"We must be pleased for the second half".

A diving header and a thumping left-footer by the Frenchman were sandwiched between a Eden Hazard strike and the comeback was complete.

'It was tough for us, the second goal was a hard moment but the most important thing if you concede one or two goals is to never give up and believe in our quality and play our game. It was however Olivier Giroud who came off the bench that flagged off the table turning push scoring in the 70th minute after enjoying an assist from Marcos Alonso.

The Blues face Burnley FC at 2:45 p.m. on Thursday at Turf Moor in Burnley, England. The offering hovered into the Chelsea box before Jan Bednarek tracked it to the ground and knocked it past Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois on his first touch.

For the first ten minutes of the game, it looked as though it would be the Blues doing all the pressing but Southampton, who entered at odds as long of 7/1 with victor to triumph, rapidly grew into the match.
