Chelsea host AS Roma in Gameweek 3 of the UEFA Champions League as they look to get back on track after a disastrous loss in the hands of Crystal Palace.
Blues would like to extend their lead at the top of the table as they look to maintain a perfect record. With Atletico guaranteed a win against Qarabag, AS Roma look to win against a weakened Chelsea as a plot to capitalise on the injury woes Chelsea have incurred during the international break.
Team news : Ngolo Kante is set to miss the game due to an injury he picked up during the international break. With Danny Drinkwater and Morata also sidelined, Chelsea might elect to go back to a 3-4-3 rather than the successful 3-5-2 that won it at the Wanda Metropolitano.
Roma would like to try out the same lineup that lost 1-0 at Naples. Roma will lineup with a traditional 5-3-1 with Nainggolan forming the pivot with De Rossi and Peleggrini.
The predicted lineups are:
Courtois-Zappacosta-Christensen-David Luiz- Cahill-Alonso-Bakayoko-Fabregas-Willian-Hazard-Batshuayi
Roma’s predicted lineup:
