Chelsea achieve 15-year first to save Conte blushes against Southampton

Chelsea's first win in three attempts sees them close within seven points of fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur and while in theory they can still overtake the Lilywhites, it looks unlikely but the manner of their victory will no doubt lift some of the gloom that has descended on Stamford Bridge.

'The players must play like this [in the second half against Southampton] in every game, not for me, but for the club, ' said Conte.

Conte is nearly certain to leave this summer after two seasons in charge, with the Blues set to miss out on Champions League football next year.
