  • Antonio Conte with Eden Hazard

Antonio Conte has admitted that Danny Drinkwater is having an "unlucky" first season at Chelsea FC following his move from Leicester City last summer.

The two sides will meet again in the FA Cup semi-finals next weekend, and Southampton will do well to raise themselves for Cup glory, with their place in the league next season looking ever more shaky.

Chelsea are seven points behind rival Tottenham Hotspur for fourth, who have a game in hand on them.

"I didn't tell him we would score, but our first goal put us in that position".

"They must have great respect for this badge". "I think we didn't show great spirit, great desire, great fight for a good result".

Roy Hodgson's side were two goals to the good with just 14 minutes played as James Tomkins drilled in his third of the campaign.

The Blues eventually came from 2-0 down to claim the three points, with relegation-threatened Southampton's misery being compounded by the fact Alonso assisted the Chelsea opener.

Other companies, including Twitter (NYSE: TWTR ), Pinterest and LinkedIn (NASDAQ: MSFT ) have similar setups, Facebook says. Facebook is trying to demystify the ways in which it tracks people when they aren't directly using the website or app.


And Celtic boss Rodgers, who worked at Stamford Bridge as a coach during Jose Mourinho's first spell in charge, is also very much at the forefront of Chelsea's thinking. But Southampton felt that Alonso should have been sent off in the first half for raking his studs down Shane Long's calf.

But the turning point for Chelsea came in the 61st minute as Antonio Conte made a double switch immediately after Southampton's second goal.

"I have been through some hard periods in my career and all the time I try to come back stronger and it has happened again in this game, and I am very pleased for me and for the team".

"As has been the case all year, apparently we've got a soft underbelly", he said. We need to be more focused at the end of the game. "We showed the right fire in our eyes".

In the 70th minute of the game at St. Mary's, you could be forgiven for thinking that every Chelsea player would be a million miles away from being included in any team of the week.

"The most important thing is never give up, believe in our quality, play our game and I am proud of what we have done today with our awesome support". I'm the coach. I'm the coach of this team.

"We've got to stick our chests out, get on with it, start being men and take responsibility". We must be pleased and as I said before a lot of times, we have to try to finish this season in the best possible way.
