Olivier Giroud: Chelsea can't give up

Super Eagles forward, Victor Moses came on in the 86th-minute as Chelsea came from 2-0 down to beat struggling Southampton 3-2 in a Premier League encounter at Saint Mary's on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Southampton remain in the drop zone on 28 points.

Conte responded by sending on Giroud along with Pedro - and the French striker hauled the visitors back into the game by heading home Marcos Alonso's cross 70th-minute cross - his first league goal for the Blues.

'As long as mathematically it is going to be possible, we are going to believe, ' said Giroud. Play the games one by one and we've got maybe five or six finals to play.

The Nigeria global was thrown into the game in the 86th in place of Eden Hazard at a time when both teams were cautiously playing to see off regulation time.

He said: "When I had the opportunity to join Chelsea and stay in the Premier League, it was easy".

"We can not allow the use of chemical weapons to become normalised, either in Syria , on the streets of the United Kingdom or elsewhere".

"I am at the best club in England in recent years because Chelsea have won more trophies than anyone else".

'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 me and for the team'.

Saturday's clash might as well pass for some form of rehearsal as both teams again go head to head at Wembley next week in their FA Cup semi-final.

'They've taken blows all year, they can't start feeling sorry for themselves now, it's gone beyond that, ' manager Mark Hughes said of his players. I thought they did that today, and against Arsenal.

"I am a competitor so hopefully next year we will compete for it".
