Southampton vs Chelsea: Giroud not giving up on top four finish

Conte praised his charges to have comeback from a disappointing first half to win the match 3-2 against Southampton over the weekend.

If the Eagles are victorious over the Seagulls, then Southampton would be four points adrift of safety.

And it is clear by what he told his Belgian team-mate when coming on, the attacker believed Chelsea could overturn their two-goal deficit.

At the time, UEFA said they too were looking into the alleged incidents, with fans posting videos on social media around Chelsea's 3-0 defeat.

Southampton made the running again in the second period, literally in Long's case, as he charged half the length of the pitch on the break before being felled near the opposition area. This is the best possible way for a player to show that he is a fantastic professional. "If you don't have something in you're heart, it's hard to come back and win this game".

"We have six games to play in the league; if we win the six games but don't finish in the top four, at least we did everything". This will be the first of two games between the two sides as they'll take on each other in the FA Cup as well. I'm the first person to take my responsibility.

"I mentioned to them the influence and the effect the Southampton fans had when I was here as a player under hard circumstances in a similar position".
