Kante may return for Chelsea's trip to Roma

El Shaarawy scored his second in the 36th by latching onto a forward pass from Chelsea's summer transfer target, Radja Nainggolan. Roma showed more will to fight and more desire to win the game.

Chelsea travel to AS Roma today in the Champions League.

David Luiz mis-judged a long ball allowing Dzeko through and was relieved to see Thibaut Courtois save from El Shaarawy.

The experienced left-back fed Perotti, who cut inside an apologetic challenge from Pedro and arrowed a superb low drive past Courtois at his near post.

The centre of the pitch will be occupied by Cesc Fabregas and Tiemoue Bakayoko, with Cesar Azipilicueta and Marcos Alonso operating out wide.

PM flags off 'Run for Unity', slams Cong for ignoring Patel
He flagged off the Run for Unity in Jammu and said that the run was for re-discovering Patels legacy to unite the country. In a veiled attack on Congress, he said, "People tried to ensure the contribution of Sardar Patel is forgotten.

Q3: Where and how to watch the live TV coverage of AS Roma vs Chelsea? The onslaught of pacey attacks proved too much for Chelsea and eventually Diego Perotti put the game out of sight for the home side, who played with incredibly confidence and flair. "Just one night, I hope". 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. " He is working hard and he is always present during games". Defender Kostas Manolas is the only player expected to miss the match. It's very important in this moment to speak with the player, and his sensation is very important.

"Our group is a tough group with Atletico Madrid and Roma".

"Kante has trained with us", said Blues boss Antonio Conte.

That was of little comfort to Conte who was disappointed with his side's desire compared to Roma's. 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. 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.
