Posted on by Sreya

Chelsea vs AS Roma

Chelsea vs AS Roma – Chelsea hosts AS Roma at Stamford Bridge on 18th October, Wednesday in a crucial UEFA Champions League fixture.

Antonio Conte’s Chelsea is struggling in the Premier League owing to a small squad and injuries to some of his key players, and the Blues have lost both their two previous league matches.

Chelsea, however, have been supreme in their two Champions League games – dispatching Qarabag 6-0 in the opener followed by an impressive 2-1 away win over Atletico Madrid, and are now top of Group C.

AS Roma, who began with a draw against Atletico Madrid defeated Qarabag in their last game and are now placed second with four points.

Team News

N’Golo Kante and Victor Moses are ruled out with hamstring injuries but Alvaro Morata returns tonight after a brief spell on the sidelines.

AS Roma will be without the injured Emerson, Patrik Schick, Rick Karsdorp and Kostas Manolas.

Chelsea Possible Starting Lineup: Thibaut Courtois, Cesar Azpilicueta, Andreas Christensen, Antonio Rudiger, Davide Zappacosta, Cesc Fabregas, Tiemou Bakayoko, Marcos Alonso, Pedro, Eden Hazard, Alvaro Morata.

AS Roma Possible Starting Lineup: Alisson, Bruno Peres, Federico Fazio, Juan Jesus, Aleksandar Kolarov, Radja Nainggolan, Daniele de Rossi, Kevin Strootman, Alessandro Florenzi, Edin Dzeko, Diego Perotti.

“Roma are a very strong team. I think this team can do much better than we’ve shown in the last two games. We must stay strong and show a lot of personality.

If we do that we can win the match. Roma are a good team in attack, they have some quality players, and defensively we need to be strong and try to keep the ball.”

– Davide Zappacosta, Chelsea.
