Between the Lines – 14/04/18

3 Goals in 8 minutes made all the difference in this weeks featured game.

PREMIER LEAGUE

SOUTHAMPTON 2

(21 Tadic ⚽️, 60 Bednarek ⚽️)

CHELSEA 3 

(70, 78 Giroud ⚽️⚽️, 75 Hazard ⚽️)

A win in this game would see Southampton climb out of the drop zone, so when Tadic opened the scoring against last years champions the stadium erupted. As the ref blew the whistle for the first half the general feeling was that Chelsea were under performing in a season that will already go down as a disappointment.

The second half began, in opening stages it was clear that Chelsea had control of the game in an attacking point of view. The question was did they have the end product. Well somehow in amogst all of the Chelsea poccession, Polish Premier League debutant Bednarek scored on the hour mark to double the Saints lead. At this point myself and pundits across the country starting hinting at the fact this could be a huge win for Southampton in the scheme of the relegation battle.

Giroud diving header sparked the beginning of the end for Southampton yesterday. The Frenchmen bullet header was the first of three goals in this fixture. Just 5 minutes after the opening goal for Chelsea the ball found itself to Eden Hazard, a simple finish followed inside the Saints defensive half. Last but not least Giroud completed his brace with a brilliant shot which just crept in past the keepers post.
