El Shaarawy strikes twice as Roma rout Chelsea 3-0

GETTYKante was injured while on international duty with France

Chelsea travel to Italy to take on AS Roma and hopefully secure qualification to the next stage of the Champions League.

Stephan El Shaarawy struck twice, including the fastest goal of this season's Champions League after just 39 seconds, to help thrust AS Roma to the top of their Champions League group with a convincing 3-0 win over lacklustre Chelsea on Tuesday.

Eusebio Di Francesco's hosts coughed up a chance from kick-off but found themselves a goal to the good inside a pulsating first minute.

Chelsea responded well to the setback, with Eden Hazard to the fore.

Browns Botched AJ McCarron Trade
The proposed compensation for McCarron would have been a second- and third-round pick in 2018, a source confirmed to Schefter . He completed 66.4 percent of his 119 pass attempts for 854 yards while throwing 6 touchdowns and 2 interceptions.

Alvaro Morata hasn't scored since returning from injury and is in need of a goal or two up front.

Stephen El Shaarawry's two first half goals left Chelsea with a mountain to climb in the Italian capital.

Radja Nainggolan's chipped pass forward was horribly misjudged by Rudiger, who let the ball run past him and El Shaarawy stole in to finish tidily. In a unsafe attempt at playing out from the back Aleksandar Kolarov passed straight to the feet of the Chelsea striker who somehow blazed a shot over the crossbar from five yards out. Roma showed more will to fight and more desire to win the game.

This is the 3rd time Chelsea are visiting AS Roma.

Tiger Woods to make return at Hero World Challenge
Tiger Woods announced his intentions to peg it at the Hero World Challenge, which gets underway on the last day of November. The announcement comes days after Woods agreed to a plea deal stemming from his May 29 arrest on DUI charges in Florida.

Perotti nearly doubled his tally and turned the game into a rout just minutes after his goal after some excellent work from Dzeko.

Perotti passed up a more straightforward opportunity, blazing over from 12 yards after Dzeko led Rudiger, Cesar Azpilicueta and David Luiz a merry dance, and Courtois' point-blank save from substitute Kostas Manolas spared further damage.

"Our group is a tough group with Atletico Madrid and Roma".

"Tonight was a bad night for us".

Cubs coach will be next Nationals manager
That inability to advance despite making it into the postseason four times in the last six seasons sealed Baker's fate. Maddon has always been a fan of Martinez and thinks he would do a great job as a manager.

Despite this very bad performance and result Chelsea still find themselves in a relatively comfortable position in the group, especially since Atletico Madrid failed to beat Qarabag in the Spanish capital.
