We can't give up on top four now, says Giroud

We can't give up on top four now, says Giroud

The Blues came back from 2-0 down to beat Southampton at the weekend.

Dusan Tadic and debutant Jan Bednarek put the hosts in command, but Giroud's first league goals for Chelsea either side of Eden Hazard's equaliser cut the gap on Liverpool and Tottenham in the fight for a top-four finish to seven points.

Eden Hazard and a double from substitute Olivier Giroud helped Chelsea turn things around within 10 minutes, breaking the hearts of Southampton fans.

Antonio Conte's men appeared at best unfazed by Saints taking the lead, but try as they might the Blues failed to kick into gear on the front foot.

A brilliant and courageous header from Alonso's inviting cross soon after coming on brought Giroud his first Premier League goal, his desire won the ball in the build-up to the second goal and his composed finish won the points.

"I was a player, and the players must play every game, not for me but for the club and for the fans".

"We take the games one by one".

Conte admitted his side had delivered a "very disappointing" first-half performance at St Mary's in his post-match interview but added his praise for his players' response.

Wilfried Zaha inspired Palace to a 3-2 victory over derby rivals Brighton at Selhurst Park, the Ivory Coast winger netting twice in an entertaining first half which saw all five goals scored.

"After 15 minutes I said we'd be champions, after what happened and we reacted", said Guardiola, who will be on the golf course with his son when United play on Sunday. Olivier we know very well, we are talking about worldwide players. It was suggested that Chelsea looked like they weren't playing for the manager as they struggled until that point, but Conte denies that was the case. The homers maintained the lead till the end of the first half and on resumption of hostilities in the second half increased the tally in the 60th minute. I didn't say we're going to score, but I believe the first goal we scored put them in a bad position.

"We've shown great character, great team spirit".

Kelechi Iheanacho could not inspire a comeback for wasteful Leicester City as they lost 2-1 at Burnley who are on the cusp of European football next season.

"I think he's having an unlucky season because he started the season with a problem in his calf and then he continued to have problems", Conte said.
