Chelsea return to Champions League action this evening, looking to continue their 100% group stage record with a match against AS Roma.

Preview

It’s the return of Champions League action at Stamford Bridge with Antonio Conte’s men facing off against Italian opposition, AS Roma. Chelsea lead the way in Group C and will open up a five-point advantage on Roma with a win. It’s a must-win tie if the Blues are to take top spot in what is a very tricky group.

Team News

It’s a bit of a mixed bag for Chelsea. N’Golo Kante, Danny Drinkwater and Victor Moses are all out but Antonio Conte’s men will welcome back Alvaro Morata to first-team action.

For the visitors, Netherlands midfielder Kevin Strootman and attacker Stephan El Shaarawy are both expected to return.
