How Chelsea should line up vs AS Roma

GETTY Antonio Conte is fully focused on Chelsea's trip to Roma ahead of the Manchester United game

Antonio Conte

Now occupying the top spot in Group C, Antonio Conte's Chelsea will have clear chances of qualifying for the next round of the prestigious European tournament despite playing away from home at the monumental Stadio Olimpico in Rome, Italy.

Chelsea responded well to the setback, with Eden Hazard to the fore.

"(Cesc) Fabregas on the ball has played some passes. Chelsea struggled to put together any cohesive attacking moves and lacked the urgency of a side chasing a game. A draw or even a defeat for Roma against Chelsea still leaves Roma ahead of Atleti going into the final two fixtures but makes the trip to Madrid much more complicated. Either way Diego Perotti, who alongside Kolarov caused Chelsea all sorts of problems, will start on the left. 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. 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.

Q4: What is the expected lineup for AS Roma vs Chelsea? Kostas Manolas should be fit to return to the central defence alongside Federico Fazio, fresh from signing a contract extension, who has impressed since replacing the Greek against Napoli two weeks ago and been key in the subsequent three straight clean sheets in the league (admittedly against middling and outright poor opposition). We are recovering important players.

Trump Administration Eyes Steep Fee Hikes At America's Busiest National Parks
There is no proposed fee increase for the annual pass for the whole park system, but those for specific parks will increase. In fact, in 2016 NPS had a record-breaking 331 million visits, almost eight per cent more than the year before.

El Shaarawy made it 2-0 before half-time, to put Roma in a commanding position in the game.

"Our group is a tough group with Atletico Madrid and Roma, two really group teams".

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. Knockout football is far less forgiving and a loss such as this will not serve Chelsea well should they make it any significant distance into the competition.
