And the 27-year-old Belgian global has conceded that he has not been happy about how the last few weeks have played out for both him and Chelsea FC. It looked as though they would have to wave goodbye to the chance of playing in the Champions League next season but today's comeback gave them fresh hope. Dusan Tadic scored on a tap-in after a great run into the box by Ryan Bertrand. Ward-Prowse's deep free-kick was played towards the back post and Bednarek converted the delivery with a cushioned volley into the bottom-right corner. The French super sub brought one back for the Blues just nine minutes after coming on.
Eden Hazard has admitted that he is not happy with his recent form for Chelsea FC.. The comeback was complete with Giroud's second of the day.
The France forward's header - his first league goal for Antonio Conte's team - and left-footed drive sandwiched Eden Hazard's left-foot finish as the Blues moved within seven points of fourth-placed Tottenham.
The win for Conte is his first in the EPL since March 10th. "Chelsea down to 10 men, it could have put a different complexion on things".
It has been a hard few weeks for the west London side, who have struggled to produce consistent performances under Antonio Conte in all competitions.
Mark Hughes and the Saints remain in the relegation zone after their third straight loss.
Chelsea starting XI: Courtois; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Cahill; Zappacosta, Kante, Fabregas, Alonso; Willian, Morata, Hazard. Southampton is now in serious trouble of going down to the Championship and needs other results to help them out of 18th place. "My job is to work with the players, finish the season as strongly as possible for us". They don't have to play for the coach.
