Diego Costa scored twice in the 4-2 win over Southampton to maintain Chelsea's charge towards the Premier League title.

Despite controlling the game for long spells at Wembley Stadium on Saturday, Spurs set an unwanted record by becoming the first team ever to lose seven successive FA Cup semi-finals as Chelsea triumphed 4-2 to stay on the track to do the double.

Costa, who has been misfiring of late, took his chance in the 53rd minute and fired in a header - his 50th Premier League goal - then added a second for good measure in the 89th after a one-two with Hazard.

Diego Costa nodded in and then scored a well-taken second to take his side seven points clear of second place Tottenham, who travel to in-form Crystal Palace on Wednesday.

Cape Town - Chelsea winger Eden Hazard is clearly thinking of the title race after helping his team pick up maximum points against Southampton on Tuesday. You reach the final in the FA Cup, a great competition.

"I have another day to decide our best eleven but they are in good condition and in good form, and for sure tomorrow I hope to see a good performance from all my players", he said.

The hosts were up at the break nonetheless, thanks to a Gary Cahill header from a Marcos Alonso assist that beat Forster at the far post to give Chelsea a 2-1 lead. Above all, when you have to play two-and-a-half days after a really strong game when we reached the final of the FA Cup.

The goal was the Belgians 15th in the league this season – the first time he has managed that feat.

"The most important thing is to look at ourselves".

"I think it was very important, otherwise we'd have gone into the changing-room at 1-1", Conte said.

While an away trip to Chelsea will be a tough task, Southampton will have former Blues player Oriol Romeu back after a two-game suspension. The first target for every great champion is to play for the team and to put your talent into the team. Not only did he score the third goal, he assisted in the Matic goal which secured their victory.

"In this part of the season it is not easy".

"We've got a big game this weekend, a hard game [at Everton]".
