Ran a really poor line tracking Ryan Bertrand and trying to get back into position for Dusan Tadic's first-half goal but was otherwise sound enough defensively.

The relegation-threatened Saints would then seemingly ensure an invaluable three points for themselves when Jan Bednarek, on his first-ever Premier League start, arrived at the far-post to convert James Ward Prowse's free-kick on the hour-mark.

Giroud replaced the ineffectual Morata and, 10 minutes later, the France global gave his side hope when he leapt to head Alonso's cross from deep for only his second goal for Chelsea since joining them from Arsenal in January.

Giroud finally scored his first Premier League goal in Chelsea colours.

"I was a player, and the players must play every game, not for me but for the club and for the fans". "We have never commented about the negative refereeing decisions, especially after the game".

Our first half wasn't good, in a lot of aspects, said Conte. "Do the job and then we see about the other teams". We have shown great character and great spirit and I am very happy for the team.

"The first half wasn't good, not only from a tactical aspect", Conte told Sky Sports.

Magnificent. Again. A masterful midfield performance by Kante, who was dominant throughout, standing out both when Chelsea were bad and when they were on top. They don't have to play for the coach.

Long nearly doubled Southampton's lead early in the second period when he turned Andres Christensen and Gary Cahill before his mishit effort almost looped over Courtois, who scrambled to turn the ball behind.

"I said when I came on to Eden Hazard, we need to fight to the end (and) keep believing". Chelsea travel to seventh-placed Burnley on Thursday before their FA Cup semi-final tie against Southampton at Wembley on Sunday.

That goal was quickly followed by the equaliser, with Willian's low cross from the left finding Hazard, who was able to take a touch before firing home from inside the area to spare his side's blushes.

"I used to say that football is an everlasting new beginning".
