El Shaarawy double as Roma maul Chelsea

El Shaarawy double as Roma maul Chelsea

Despite their lead it was the home side who came out looking brighter for the second half and Dzeko nearly managed to convert a twisting acrobatic effort in the early minutes.

Chelsea responded well to the setback, with Eden Hazard to the fore.

Perotti got the third after the break following a Cesc Fabregas error in midfield to pile the pressure on Chelsea, who could thank Belgian keeper Courtois for pulling off some key saves including a searing Manolas header.

Marcos Alonso cut in from the left and forced Alisson to push a rasping shot behind, while Bakayoko compounded Chelsea's woes by powering a header wastefully wide from the resulting corner. Chelsea struggled to put together any cohesive attacking moves and lacked the urgency of a side chasing a game. Should they seal their progress today, the Italian will have the freedom of getting the youngsters to start in the last 2 games and give the seniors their much-needed rest.

The tactical changes allowed the visitors to maintain some more consistent possession but it was Roma who looked more risky as the repeatedly caught Chelsea on the counter.

WR Kelvin Benjamin traded to Bills
Clearly Carolina felt he was expendable, which could also be a sign that tight end Greg Olsen is returning soon. Benjamin never lived up to his status as a first-rounder and the team needed to shake up their offense.

Perotti nearly doubled his tally and turned the game into a rout just minutes after his goal after some excellent work from Dzeko.

Q4: What is the expected lineup for AS Roma vs Chelsea? 'In any hard moments, it is always good for the team when we fight and work together. "Moses needs more time", Conte told a pre-match press conference at the Stadio Olympico of players returning from Chelsea's mini-injury crisis. In the end Roma ran out as comfortable winners in a game that never really looked in doubt for the Italian club.

The Blues take on Roma tonight looking to make up for dropping valuable points in Group C qualification last time out against the Serie A side.

A win would keep the gap between Roma, who are two points behind Chelsea on five points, and Atletico at three, assuming that Diego Simeone's team - who are still unbeaten in La Liga but have disappointed in Europe - don't slip up again against Qarabag at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano.
