Chelsea vs. A.S Roma: Champions League – Match Preview

Chelsea entertain the Italian outfit A.S Roma in their third Champions League group game.

The Blues have won both of their games so far, including a famous 2-1 win away to Atletico Madrid.

They were surprisingly beaten by Crystal Palace in the Premier League last weekend though and are nine points adrift of the league leaders.

A.S Roma were beaten by Napoli on Saturday, with Lorenzo Insigne scoring the winner for the visitors.

They have claimed four points from their first two Champions League games, edging past Qarabag last time out.

Team news
Chelsea hope to have Alvaro Morata back from a muscle problem and he will replace Michy Batshuayi in the team.

They will be without both Victor Moses and N’Golo Kante though for the visit of Roma.

Roma look set to be without key defender Kostas Manolas after he was forced off vs. Napoli.

The former Manchester City pair of Aleksandar Kolarov and Edin Dzeko will both start.

Expected starting XI’s
Chelsea (3-4-2-1): Courtois; Azplicueta, Luiz, Cahill; Zappacosta, Fabregas, Bakayoko, Alonso; Pedro, Hazard; Morata
A.S Roma (4-3-3): Alisson; Peres, Fazio, Jesus, Kolarov; Nainggolan, De Rossi, Strootman; Florenzi, Dzeko, Perotti
