EPL: Giroud helps Chelsea secure comeback win over Southampton

Antonio Conte GETTYAntonio Conte's Chelsea are set to miss out on Champions League qualification for next season

Time is running out for Southampton as they battle for survival.

"I thought they did that today, and against Arsenal".

The south coast outfit can actually jump outside the bottom three today with a win, should results elsewhere go their way, but that will be easier said than done, with Chelsea determined to put their poor recent run of form behind them.

The champions have their own top four bid to contend with, however.

Brendan Rodgers is firmly in Chelsea's thinking to replace Antonio Conte this summer, with the Blues having drawn up a four-man shortlist, claim reports.

Keep track of all the latest action as it happens at St Mary's, right here.

Antonio Conte has called on his charges to play for the respect of the Chelsea badge and not to help him save his job.

Alert over 'malicious' Russian cyber attack
He said it was now possible to identify the culprits behind many attacks, including state actors like Russian Federation . Shortly after the announcement, the White House said Joyce would leave his post and return to the U.S.


Syria's air defenses respond to missile attack over Homs
Syria and its ally Russian Federation deny any chemical attack took place - with Russian Federation calling it a "staged thing". The Group of Seven leading industrialized nations has issued a joint statement endorsing the USA -led air strikes in Syria.


Donald Trump yet to make 'final decision' on Syria missile strike
The Syrian government denies responsibility. "Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria", Trump wrote. President Donald Trump announced airstrikes in retaliation for the country's alleged use of chemical weapons.


Conte is nearly certain to leave this summer after two seasons in charge, with the Blues set to miss out on Champions League football next year.

Doubts have been expressed over Conte's future and the Italian says he is not thinking about next season with the club.

A brilliant and fearless 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. The important thing is that we know we depend on ourselves.

Hazard - who has been at Stamford Bridge since 2012 - has been linked with clubs including Real Madrid and Premier League leaders Manchester City. We work very hard every day. "It's hard now to explain the reasons why we're struggling in this way this season", Conte said. This must be our target.

"We got ourselves into a great position". 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. We have a semi-final in the FA Cup.

But then Giroud came on. No-one deserves this type of season. I think the coach has to transfer this to the players. With just one win from their last 20 Premier League matches, their hopes of staying in the division are looking very bleak indeed right now. But, for sure, I'm not alone.

This appeared to be Southampton's most pressing problem under Mauricio Pellegrino, when they so desperately struggled to find any attacking fluency. We must be ready to share the responsibility.
