Giroud's Inspired Comeback Gifts Chelsea A Win Over Southampton

Some have questioned Eden Hazard's form of late

Both sides have six games left to play - including the Blues' clash with Southampton - and Chelsea are now ten points adrift of their London rivals, who face the Premier League champions-elect Manchester City at Wembley in Saturday's late kick-off.

Dusan Tadic and debutant Jan Bednarek put the hosts in command, but Giroud's first league goals for Chelsea either side of Eden Hazard's equaliser cut the gap on Liverpool and Tottenham in the fight for a top-four finish to seven points.

Antonio Conte gave credit for the unlikely comeback (first of its kind at Chelsea since 2002) to the players, and Giroud was chief among those who deserve plenty of those plaudits.

Three years later, he was cleared to practice law again after the District of Columbia Court of Appeals reinstated him to the D.C. Another twist is that the special counsel, Patrick Fitzgerald, was appointed by James Comey, deputy attorney general at the time.

Eden Hazard finished smartly to put Chelsea level minutes later, and Giroud would come up with the goods again, scoring the victor off his foot to hand the visiting Londoners a 3-2 win.

"In the second half we showed great character, great reaction, great desire to win the game".

Southampton stayed in the relegation zone with five games left, and manager Mark Hughes was aggrieved that Alonso avoided punishment for a studs-up challenge on Shane Long in the first half. "I think we didn't show great spirit, great desire, great fight for a good result". He said he is the first person to take responsibility for that as the coach. "I have two good strikers and I try to make the best decision at the start of the game or during the game". I was very disappointed but we must be pleased by the second half.

Williams later joked that maybe now would be the ideal time for her to walk in one of her fashion shows. Now that she's had her baby girl, the 33-year-old reality personality is vowing an all out legal war.

Conte swiftly responded by hauling off the disappointing Alvaro Morata and Davide Zappacosta for Pedro Rodriguez and Giroud. Olivier we know very well, we are talking about global players.

"But we have had the right spirit to come back and win this game".

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.

House Speak Paul Ryan will not seek reelection
Responding to rumours about an imminent departure in December 2017, Ryan told Republican colleagues the was "not going anywhere". Ryan spokesman Brendan Buck said in a statement that Ryan was proud of his achievements and ready to focus on his family.

We're not convinced. Players have fallen out with Conte in the past and subsequently been frozen out, a la David Luiz.
