Crystal Palace had been set to drop into the bottom three on goal difference prior to Chelsea's comeback.

The Saints thus blew their best chance to move into safety as their naivety was punished by their more illustrious opponent's who still fancy their chances of finishing fourth despite now trailing rivals, Tottenham Hotspur's by seven points at the top of the Premier League table.

The Frenchman replaced Alvaro Morata midway through the second half with the Blues down 2-0 but a header and a low strike, coupled with a smart finish from Eden Hazard ensured an away victory.

Two of those reverses came at the hands of Liverpool, who cruised into their first Champions League semi-final for a decade 5-1 on aggregate against the runaway Premier League leaders.

However, Conte's Chelsea have been in poor form of late, dropping to fifth and 10 points behind the last Champions League spot with three losses and a draw from their last six matches in the competition. I don't play football just for me - I play for the team. I don't like stats, I play for a long time, so I am on the pitch to enjoy.

But they did at least keep themselves in the running with a spirited comeback at St Mary's after falling behind to goals from Dusan Tadic and debutant Jan Bednarek. If I can assist, I assist. The Italian has come under criticism this season with Chelsea struggling to qualify for next year's Champions League. "But I just want to be happy on the pitch, and when you are winning you are happy, and when you are not winning you are not happy". "It would have been huge", Langley said on Chelsea TV.

Giroud told Sky Sports: "I said when I came in, I said to Eden: 'Come on, we need to fight until the end. No regrets, let's play one month".
