With the game seemed to be lost, Chelsea made a shocking comeback to beat Southampton 3-2 at the St Mary’s Stadium on Saturday, having gone 2-0 down in that fixture.

Antonio Conte made two changes in the second-half that turned the game around with substitute Olivier Giroud going on to score two well-taken goals to discard the Saints.

Eden Hazard has revealed that the players spoke at length in the dressing room at half-time which also helped the team to come back and win the game.

The Chelsea star told Chelsea TV: “Sometimes things like this happen in football. We started the first half very badly, but we spoke together in the dressing room at half-time and we showed great character to come back and win the game.

“I actually thought we started the game fairly well. The first 10 or 15 minutes we were in control of the game but then they scored the goal and things changed. We were a little bit down and were trying to play off the ball, but that wasn’t working because Southampton were defending very well.

“After they scored the second goal we had to make some changes and you saw what happened after that! It was a great comeback and we were all very happy to get the win.”
