Moses not left out as Giroud inspires Chelsea's comback win at Southampton

Moses not left out as Giroud inspires Chelsea's comback win at Southampton”

Oliver Giroud has revealed that he told Eden Hazard to "keep believing" before he helped Chelsea FC to mount a dramatic 3-2 comeback at Southampton on Saturday.

The France striker then channelled that never-say-die spirit again when insisting the Blues can not admit defeat in their top-four quest, despite still trailing fourth-placed Tottenham by seven points, with only five games remaining.

"As long as mathematically it is going to be possible, we are going to believe". His goals pulled Chelsea back from the brink and secured us a much-needed three points.

The Nigeria worldwide 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.

'Obviously I was waiting for that, ' Giroud added. The thing is as a striker you need to keep going and keep the confidence high.

Olivier Giroud was the hero as his second-half brace ensured a victory for the Blues in a 5-goal thriller

'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'.

Chelsea FC will take on Southampton once again next weekend in the FA Cup semi-finals as they look to reach the final and end the campaign with a trophy.

Chelsea's form has also dipped since the start of 2018 and they are also now unlikely to be playing in next season's Champions League as they are ten points adrift of fourth-placed Tottenham.

But he risked the wrath of Arsenal fans after admitting that joining Chelsea was easy, because they are the best team in the league.

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