Chamapions league defeat for Chelsea

Chelsea was taken apart by Roma in last night’s Champions League match.

It was a match that saw Roma run out 3-0 winners against the English Champions.

The London club became the first English side to lose a game in the competition this season.

On a night Chelsea’s Coach Antonio Conte would want to forget, Roma play was controlled and sublime.

Chelsea would have progressed to the next round with a victory, but as it stands would have to wait until they play Qarabag on the 22nd of November, in a game they must win.

Manchester United, on the contrary, had no drama in their match against Benfica.

This is not taking away anything from the Portuguese side who put up a much better performance from their last match in Lisbon.

Anthony Martial earned Man U a penalty when he was brought down, but the Frenchman failed to convert from the spot.

The Benfica keeper Svilar, became the youngest keeper to save a penalty in the Champions League, stopping Martial from scoring.

However, at the stroke of half-time, he became the youngest keeper to score an own goal in the competition.

The home side sealed the victory with a Daley Blind penalty in the 78th minute.

“We have not qualified yet? Four victories and it is still not enough? We must get that point from the two remaining matches,” said manager Jose Mourinho.

“We scored two goals, did not concede, gained three more points, more money for the club – because every victory means money – and did not have any significant injuries.”

Mourinho also gave a debut to midfielder Scott McTominay with established starters Pogba, Fellaini all injured.

The 20-year-old was to give a good account of himself, as he won the ball more times than any other United player, 9 in total.

Manchester United victorious by 2-0.
