Roma go top of Group C after easy win against Chelsea

Chelsea

Chelsea's failure to qualify for the Champions League last season helped the well-rested side record just three draws and seven defeats across all competitions to win their sixth league title and reach the FA Cup final. They won the first game 4-1 but were beaten 3-1 the 2nd time they went to face the Serie A side.

Away matches are always a challenge and after the 3-3 draw between the two teams earlier in the month, Antonio Conte's men will have to be on top form.

"There are two big games before the global break, against Roma tomorrow and (Manchester) United on Sunday".

"It's always hard to win the league the second year". The Blues looked fluid going forward with both Morata and Hazard experiencing success running the channels, and as Chelsea settled into the game they began to dominate the possession.

Despite this bad 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.

Chelsea now sit top of Group C in the Champions League with seven points from a possible nine.

"That game must be a starting point for us".

The London side's troubles have also been linked to their underwhelming transfer window while their league rivals spent heavily to significantly boost their squads. First of all, Aleksandar Kolarov, who has so impressed since returning to Rome, will return at left-back, as Bruno Peres - who played on the left at the weekend - is out thanks to the latest in a long line of muscle injuries afflicting the club.

Central defender Kostas Manolas, who had come on as a late substitute, nearly became the next Roma name on the score sheet with a bullet header, but Courtois pulled off a spectacular reaction save to deny the Greek worldwide.

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.
