Roma 3-0 Chelsea – Stephan El Shaarawy struck twice as Roma hammered a miserable Chelsea to move top of Champions League Group C.
The hosts started in ideal fashion as El Shaarawy lashed Edin Dzeko’s perfectly weighted back-header into the top corner from 20 yards out.
Chelsea played mainly on the counter but looked dangerous when they got forward, with Roma goalkeeper Alisson denying the bright Eden Hazard thrice in the first half.
However Roma were far more clinical and El Sharaawy capitalised on an Antonio Rudiger error to slip home the second.
Chelsea paled in the second half and Diego Perotti slammed home from outside the box in the 63rd minute to extend Roma’s lead to three.
