  • Some have questioned Eden Hazard's form of late

With that result, Chelsea rose to fifth place in Premier League's standing table with 60 points, while Southampton is in 18th place with 28 points, meaning it may be among the teams to suffer relegation to the lower division.

But a brace from Olivier Giroud an an Eden Hazard strike in a devastating nine-minute spell helped secure a sensational comeback victory.

"I really wanted the team to bounce back in the second half and obviously at the beginning it was not what we expected, but in football you always have the chance to step up and bounce back".

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.

"In every game we must play with great passion, spirit". If you don't have something in your heart, it's very hard to come back and win. 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. "As long as it is mathematically possible to finish in the top four we will keep battling".

Police previously seized planters from houses McArthur worked at from around Toronto but found no remains in those planters. However, police are still trying to identify a deceased man after they released a graphic image of him last month.

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 didn't say we're going to score, but I believe the first goal we scored put them in a bad position.

Conte swiftly responded by hauling off the disappointing Alvaro Morata and Davide Zappacosta for Pedro Rodriguez and Giroud.

"I'm very happy for him", Conte added when asked about the former Arsenal man's performance. Olivier we know very well, we are talking about global players.

Giroud and Pedro came on right after Chelsea went 2-0 down which was the start of Chelsea's comeback.

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.
