El Shaarawy double as Roma maul Chelsea

Roma too hot to handle for Chelsea

Defender Kostas Manolas is the only player expected to miss the match.

"Kante has trained with us", said Blues boss Antonio Conte. The home fans were enjoying themselves in the closing moments, sarcastically cheering whenever a Chelsea player completed a pass or took on a shot.

"He is happy. He is a fantastic manager and tries to do the best for Chelsea", Ranieri added.

It was an entertaining and open match like the 3-3 draw between the teams in London two weeks ago but this time Chelsea couldn't find a way past Roma's in-form goalkeeper Alisson.

Both teams will be fully aware that a win in this game will be a crucial step towards qualification from the group.

While Chelsea have not declined so drastically, the London side have started their current campaign inconsistently, recording three league losses in 10 games to sit in fourth position, nine points behind leaders Manchester City.

Kathy Griffin Blasts TMZ's Harvey Levin, Releases His Personal Number
Griffin has said in recent months that she and Cooper are no longer friends, and recently branded him the "spineless heiress". I thought he was kidding the first time. "Maybe you do", Kathy said. "He was a miserable boss for all of those years".

El Shaarawy also scored an impressive goal in Roma's 1-0 win over Bologna on Saturday, and his form will be welcome to Italy coach Gian Piero Ventura ahead of the Azzurri's World Cup playoff with Sweden.

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

Despite this very 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.

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

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. Antonio Conte chose to change things as the hour mark approached and Willian replaced Gary Cahill as the Blues switched to a conventional back four, looking to be more competitive in midfield. "Chelsea also has the Champions League and then it's not easy", Ranieri, who managed Chelsea from 2000-04, told the Evening Standard.
