Olivier Giroud was relieved to get his first Premier League goals for Chelsea after a frustrating few weeks as he netted twice to inspire a comeback in their 3-2 win at Southampton on Saturday.

Less than 10 minutes later, Conte's men were in the lead through a strike from Hazard and another from Giroud, earning a much-needed three points. When I talk about a lot of mistakes, I involve me, my staff, the players and the club.

"They must have great respect for this badge". This is the best possible way for a player to show that he is a fantastic professional.

They dominated the first half and went ahead in the 22nd minute when captain Vincent Kompany's long pass released Jesus to score in clinical fashion.

"I'm very disappointed for the first half, and I'm the first to take fault for it, but in the second my players deserve credit". I have been through some hard periods in my career and all the time I try to come back stronger and it has happened again in this game, and I am very pleased for myself and for the team'.

"Especially in this type of situation when there is a great difficulty, you must show that you are a man rather than just a player". But his second-half efforts were a stark contrast when he demanded possession and showed real drive, typified by his surge into the box when he smashed the ball home to make it 2-2.

"From a Chelsea person it is sad to see that - I want to see a big smile on his face".

"They did this in the second half against Southampton".

"As has been the case all year apparently we've got a soft underbelly", said Saints boss Mark Hughes, whose three Premier League games in charge have now all ended in defeats.

He has managed to only score one goal, which came against Hull City during an FA Cup clash, and he has mainly been used as a backup option to Alvaro Morata and Eden Hazard.

'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.

But the 2018/19 kits could be even more of a hit with fans, with Nike aiming to take things in a slightly fresh direction.

"There is always speculation around our position, not only for me but for a lot of coaches".
