Chelsea v Roma: Buoyant Blues can move closer to knockout stages

David Luiz Chelsea news

Hazard was not to be denied again as the ball fell fortuitously for the Belgian international who steered home to double Chelsea's lead after thirty-eight minutes.

He is ideally placed to identify what qualities will be required if we are to get the better of a side who are currently fifth in Serie A.

Follow the Football match between Chelsea and AS Roma live with Eurosport.

Hazard's first goal of the season followed David Luiz's opener but Aleksandar Kolarov halved the deficit before Dzeko's delightful volley and free header within seven second-half minutes.

Both teams have made a below-par start to the campaign, with the Gunners sixth after surrendering a lead at Watford last time out, while Everton are performing even worse.

"I could have taken a risk to play Morata on Saturday versus Palace but I am not so stupid because the situation is difficult".

"It's the truth. It wasn't our best game on Saturday. Sometimes the players need to rest instead". "But I do believe if they have a fit squad, they have a great chance of going as far in Europe as any of the English teams".

The Romans though were soon back in the clash. Their starting XI has no room for Daniele De Rossi, but features former Manchester City striker Eden Dzeko.

Both of Roma's first two goals resulted from insufficient pressure on the ball in the middle third.

Midfielders N'Golo Kante (hamstring) and Danny Drinkwater (calf) are out. It was an easy task from then on in as he glanced a header into the bottom corner.

A lack of depth in the Italian's current squad has also become increasingly evident in the aftermath of a summer transfer window fraught with struggle and frustration. But despite tormenting defenders in domestic competitions, since Hazard made his Champions League debut with Lille in 2011, the game's grandest stage has seen frustratingly few glimpses of that exquisite talent.

And Chelsea fans on Twitter think Ancelotti's secretly plotting a return to Stamford Bridge.

Wrapping up another exciting weekend in the Premier League will be Tottenham v Liverpool at Wembley in a game that promises thrills, spills and plenty of goal action. It was a memorable strike, hit on the run, from wide on the right-hand side, and understandably a memory which brings a smile to the player's face.

Chelsea: Courtois (6); Azpilicueta (6), Christensen (7), Cahill (6); Alonso (7); Zappacosta (6) (Rüdiger (), 77′), Fàbregas (7), Luiz (7) (Pedro (7), 57′), Bakayoko (7), Alonso (6); Hazard (8) (Willian (), 80′), Morata (7).
