Giroud scores twice as Chelsea storm back to win at Southampton

Giroud scores twice as Chelsea storm back to win at Southampton”

Giroud started the comeback with a brilliant header in the 70th minute and scored the victor just eight minutes later.

'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'.

"We changed something in the second half and the difference was the approach and the will to fight".

The substitute struck twice as Chelsea scored three times in eight minutes for a dramatic 3-2 comeback victory at Southampton. Since late March, the Spaniard has netted in the games against Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur, and this has been followed by an assist for Azpilicueta's goal last weekend.

And Giroud has revealed what he said to Hazard when he came on against the Saints at St Mary's. Keep believing!' I didn't tell him that we're going to score but I did believe that the first goal we scored would put them in a bad position. "The most important thing is never give up, believe in our quality, play our game and I am proud of what we have done today with our wonderful support".

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.

Giroud is so far yet to complete a Premier League match, having been subbed off in his two starts.

'Obviously I was waiting for that, ' Giroud added.

"It is nice because Chelsea need several strikers because it is a big team".

'I always used to say that football is an everlasting beginning, so you always need to question yourself and in those moments the most important thing is to show character.

Morata now has competition behind him in the form of Oliver Giroud, and his current form guarantees him a start.
