Chelsea fans, this one won’t make for good reading… 

Chelsea’s poor form continued today as the Blues lost 3-0 away to Roma in the Champions League

The Italian side opened the scoring in the first minute, after former AC Milan winger Stephan El-Shaarawy hammered a 20-yard volley past Thibaut Courtois.

The home side then doubled their lead in the 37th minute, after a ball from Radja Nainggolan was poked home by El-Shaarawy to put Chelsea firmly in the passenger seat.

Roma then added a third in the 63rd minute from Argentinian Diego Perotti, as the forward fired home a 25-yard pile-driver to put the result beyond Antonio Conte’s side.

Man of the Match

AS Roma’s Stephan El-Shaarawy beats everyone to this award today, as the Italian international scored two fantastic finishes to give the Serie A giants an almost unassailable lead.

The Italian first strike was almost unstoppable, with his second a class piece of skill to beat Courtois.
