Roma go top of Group C after easy win against Chelsea

With Atletico Madrid in third place and yet to win in the Champions League this season, it could be a major scalp for both sides.

"Kante has trained with us", said Blues boss Antonio Conte. Defender Kostas Manolas is the only player expected to miss the match. We are recovering important players. It's very important in this moment to speak with the player, and his sensation is very important. "Tomorrow will be another hard match", said Conte as Chelsea lead the group, two points ahead of Roma, with Atletico Madrid in third. 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.

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. "He is a fantastic manager and tries to do the best for Chelsea".

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.

"Before the Roma game we lost a couple of games, now we have won three games in a row". But we have to focus on training, perform in games - and that's all that matters at the end of the season.

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.

And a bad result would also heap more pressure on Conte's position in charge of the club ahead of Sunday's crucial clash with Manchester United.

Conte's side have returned to the European competition strongly as they remain unbeaten at the top of their group and on the verge of qualification to the knockout stages.

Don't look now, but Champions League darkhorse Atletico Madrid may not make it out of the group stage.
