Don't play for me - Conte tells Chelsea players

Share

"I was very angry for our first half", Conte said. The beginning of the game is not what we wanted and is not what we were expecting but in football you always have the opportunity to step up and bounce back.

He told Sky Sports: "Obviously I was waiting for it. I tried so many times to put it in the net and sometimes I didn't have luck, sometimes I lacked a bit of efficiency".

Said equaliser duly came as Hazard somehow found space in the Southampton area as Willian's driven cross landed at his feet.

Marcos Alonso was then lucky to escape a red card on the stroke of half-time for catching Long on the calf with a studs-first challenge. "There were three officials within five to 10 yards so how each of them missed it is a mystery to me".

"It was a poor tackle, it was a tackle that thankfully had no drastic consequences for Shane". If you don't have something in your heart, it's very hard to win the game, but today I'm very happy with the second half, and very disappointed with the first.

"Those are key moments and referees have got to get them right, maybe that's why the [Premier League] referees are not at the World Cup this year".

The Saints eventually broke the deadlock on 22 minutes as former Blues defender Ryan Bertrand surged into the box before picking out Dusan Tadic, who slotted into the far corner.

However following the introduction of Olivier Giroud the game was flipped, with the Frenchman grabbing a brace whilst Eden Hazard also scored an emphatic finish to complete an eight-minute turnaround from Antonio Conte's side.

With 20 minutes to go, the deficit was cut in half by Giroud, who sneaked home a header for his first league goal since arriving from Arsenal in January. "I think we didn't show great spirit, great desire, great fight for a good result".

Liverpool continued their scintillating run of form with a routine 3-0 win over Bournemouth with goals scored by the attacking trio of Mane, Salah and Firmino.

"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".

With pressure building on coach Antonio Conte, the Blues looked set to see their hopes of a top-four finish in the Premier League disappear, but substitute Giroud emerged to pull one back in the 70th minute and keep them in the game.
