A win for Chelsea would secure a last-16 spot with two games to spare in Group C.

Chelsea travel to AS Roma today in the Champions League.

Radja Nainggolan's chipped pass forward was horribly misjudged by Rudiger, who let the ball run past him and El Shaarawy stole in to finish tidily.

Kolarov fed Perotti, who danced by Pedro and struck a low shot under Courtois.

The centre of the pitch will be occupied by Cesc Fabregas and Tiemoue Bakayoko, with Cesar Azipilicueta and Marcos Alonso operating out wide.

By the time Roma grabbed a third, Chelsea had fallen apart. The Argentine picked up the ball on the edge of the box and drilled in his shot at the near post, beating Courtois with simple power and placement, and highlighting his side's undeniable dominance. Last season, there were games where I had nothing to do and other games I had four or five saves. The Bosnian turned brilliantly past three Chelsea defenders and teed up Perotti, but the forward blasted his shot over the crossbar when it looked for all the world like he would bury it.

This season every game is a hard game for the team, the defence, everybody.

The Group C match between top-2 table toppers AS Roma and Chelsea played at the Stadio Olimpico, Rome will kick off at 01:15 AM IST on Wednesday, November 1. "It's very important in this moment to speak with the player".

This was a stunning victory for Roma, who jumped straight to the top of Group C and put themselves in the ideal position to secure qualification for the knockout stages. A Chelsea win and Atletico Madrid defeat against Qarabağ FK in Azerbaijan is the unlikely scenario that Conte's men are facing tonight if they want an early berth in the knockout stage.

"Kante has trained with us", said Blues boss Antonio Conte.

Chelsea surrendered a 2-0 lead to trail 3-2 two weeks ago, only for Eden Hazard to equalise at home to Roma.
