1-0 Southampton!

Bertrand goes on a good run down the left flank, comes inside and passes in to Tadic who tucks away to put Saints 1 up.

Alonso is a proper cunt for doing that. 

Purposely goes for Shane Long with his studs on the back of his shin. His own player has the ball so he's definitely gone out of his way to aim for Long. Dirty twat.

Nasty,   video review coming up on that tackle.

A team fighting for their lives against a team who have nothing to play for, poor from Southampton if they don't win this. You'd think our lot would want to get some form and confidence going though given that we have the small matter of an FA Cup semi-final coming up.

Morata is like a moaning old woman and is far worse than Costa in terms of antics and that sort of thing.

Poor defending from Azpi again.

Class from Bertrand who should be in the starting eleven for us today, his had a poor season for Southampton but will probably be one of the first to get snatched if they were to go down. Would much rather have Bertrand in the team than Alonso whose tracking back for the goal was dreadful and he should have been sent off as well.

Our game plan as always is to get the ball into our striker's feet as quickly as possible, then play in and around that which is why you see a lot of these little one twos between our attacking players which is something Chelsea fans are getting more and more annoyed with. For a while now other teams have clocked onto that and look to crowd out the centre of the pitch. Conte's system is all about direct play and getting the ball forward as quickly as possible, this isn't necessarily a long ball and route one, the target is to always get the ball into the striker's feet. It's better however at times to have more patience and wait for the right moment to get the ball forward, waiting for the space.

I predicted Southampton to win this. And my predictions are generally terrible. Chelsea have been diabolical

I thought I was only going to watch one pathetic, spineless team with no pride in blue with nothing to play for lose away at a relegation threatened opponent today but now thanks to Chelsea I get to see two.

We switch to 4 at the back and have more attackers we level it in 5 minutes. 

Imagine that

Be a real shame if Southampton end up losing this and eventually getting relegated.

3 in 8 minutes whilst switching 4 to the back.

Today could crush Southampton. Losing in this manner will take away any momentum from the new manager bounce while the three teams above them all have winnable home games today. Then on Monday you've got West Ham v Stoke where no result is any good for Southampton especially if other results today go against them.

Mangod Giroud with the rescue. Maybe Conte will stop starting the crying boy, Morata.

Southampton fucking hell. 

Must be like a knife to the heart losing this, especially after playing well against Arsenal last week and getting nothing too. 

Wonder if Conte will get any credit for switching it up...

No? It's quite literally what everyone was asking for and desperately wanted. Look at my first post. 

Switches to 4 at the back, 3 goals in 8 minutes. Switches back to 5 defenders, we become passive again and invite pressure.

You've got to say it's poor from Hughes, failing to react to how massively the game changed. At 0-0 playing against a 5-2-3 things were going well. At 2-1 up against a 4-2-3-1 they had something to hold onto and it was clear that the play had completely turned against them and they didn't react until it was too late.

Though in fairness two of the goals came from total slackness at dead-ball situations rather than any real tactical issue.

Sickening feeling that in spite our comeback from a 2 goal deficit, Conte will yet again start the next game with the same formation and same two-man midfield. 

The way he so quickly reverted to a back 3 straightly after we scored the 3rd, leaves me no hope that his arrogance and obsession with this formation will go away. Insanity. 

Yes, we made a fantastic comeback, but yet again the main worry is that Conte again only makes positive changes after we are down. Waits for things to happen rather takes the initiative and makes things happen. It's no wonder why his cup performances are terrible.

Missed the first half, came home for the second. We went 2-0 down not even the most optimistic fans thought we would get anything. The Saints fans were already celebrating the three points. Giroud proved he is Premiership built, strong and dominant in the air had to do a lot for the first goal. We scored three goals in eight minutes and got the three points. For us don't think it will mean much we are still miles behind Spurs and Liverpool with 5 games to be played. Southampton could now easily go down which is a shame i rate them. Showed some fighting spirit for the first time since the 1-1 draw against Barcelona. We should play for pride at least, don't see us getting the Fa Cup, but we are now heavy underdogs considering United and Spurs are in better form. Then again would be a big surprise if this mob gets it. Burnley up next and they are hard as nails before we play the semi final of the Fa Cup. Think Conte should rotate the team a bit, rest the key players as the league is done 5th or 6th at best.
