Roma 3-0 Chelsea: Roma run rampant in the Stadio Olimpico

Share

Antonio Conte's Premier League winners are finding things far more hard on the pitch than they experienced last season when they cruised to glory.

"Kante has trained with us". 'In any hard moments, it is always good for the team when we fight and work together. It's very important in this moment to speak with the player, and his sensation is very important.

The rematch in Rome's Stadio Olympico after a 3-3 thriller in London two weeks ago did not disappoint the 55,000 crowd in Rome as Chelsea coach Antonio Conte was frustrated on his return to Italy.

"We will try to make the best decision".

Despite this terrible performance and result Chelsea still find themselves in a relatively comfortable position in the group, especially since Atletico Madrid failed to beat Qarabag in the Spanish capital.

The match is the first part of a gruelling double-header for Chelsea, who then host Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday. As Chelsea pressed for an equaliser Roma started to play on the break, and El Shaarawy had a great chance to double the home side's lead, which was well saved by Courtois.

"Before the Roma game we lost a couple of games, now we have won three games in a row".

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is crossing his fingers about N'Golo Kante's fitness and after the pummeling his team's midfield took at the Bridge he must surely be thinking about throwing the Frenchman in to protect top spot in the group. "Chelsea also has the Champions League and then it's not easy", Ranieri, who managed Chelsea from 2000-04, told the Evening Standard.

As the group action enters the second half, AS Roma will be looking to gain supremacy over group C by defeating Chelsea at home after their emphatic performance at the Stamford Bridge on Matchday 5 when the two sides face each other.
