Chelsea’s ambition to advance into the knock out stages of UEFA Champions League suddenly under some threat as The Blues suffered a shock 3-0 defeat from AS Roma.
Keen on getting a better result than their previous 3-3 draw against the Italian side at Stamford Bridge, The Blues were determined in playing aggressive since kick off.
However, it was Roma that got themselves off to a bright start when Stephan El Shaaray puts the host in front after just one minute of play.
El Shaarawy continue to cause nightmare for The Blues as he bagged a brace, scoring his second on 36 minutes, giving his team a comfortable two goals lead as they go into half time break.
Chelsea’s comeback hope was crushed when Diego Perotti made it 3-0 midway into the second half as Antonio Conte’s men suffered their first defeat in the competition this season.
Meanwhile, Manchester United looked to stroll their way into the knock out stages of Champions League after grabbing another victory, this time a 2-0 win against Benfica.
Beating the same opponent 1-0 in previous meeting, it was’t much different this time around as that tie remained far from comfortable for Jose Mourinho’s team as the Portuguese side put on a strong display.
However, an own goal from goal keeper Mile Svilar along with Daley Blind’s spot kick were enough to secure an all three points for the home team.
