The match Chelsea-Roma will take place at 02:45 pm EST on October 18th, 2017, at Stamford Bridge Stadium.
Kostas Manolas picked up a serious injury in the Serie A match against Napoli. The Greek defender is, therefore. unavailable against Chelsea. Juan Jesus and Fazio will start.
Kevin Strootman is back in the starting 11. The Dutch midfielder replaces Pellegrini.
Florenzi, Dzeko, and Perotti should be Roma’s offensive trio, however, the Turkish talent Under could play too.
