HOW THE ENGLISH PRESS REACTED TO ROMA’S 3-0 WIN AGAINST CHELSEA

10 English newspapers react to Roma’s 3-0 thrashing of Chelsea in the Champions League...

THE GUARDIAN

“Antonio Conte’s homecoming was not supposed to descend into a humiliation. Yet everything about this return to Rome was nightmarish, with Chelsea shredded at the back.”

DAILY EXPRESS

“Roma punished them savagely and, in truth, it could have been worse.”

THE TIMES

“This was so embarrassing that Chelsea may actually be counting their blessings this morning that the scoreline remained relatively modest. Roma were a joy to behold, both clever and carefree, incisive and creative.”

DAILY TELEGRAPH

“This one will have hurt Antonio Conte more than the rest. The Italian is a notoriously bad loser, but this defeat will have badly dented his pride.”

DAILY MIRROR

“Roma have been excellent this season in both Serie A, where they are fifth with a game in hand, and Europe in which they are thus far unbeaten. A team of players with plenty to prove has given them a determined dynamic.”

METRO

“Chelsea produced arguably their worst performance of the season in 3-0 defeat at Roma and the scoreline could have been far worse for Antonio Conte’s men at the Stadio Olimpico.”

THE i

“The Blues were put to the sword by their hosts who were far sharper and more composed in possession.”

DAILY MAIL

“Antonio Conte fiddled but Roma were on fire and Chelsea picked a fine time to spontaneously combust. This was not what Conte had in mind on his first competitive return to the Italian capital.”

DAILY STAR

“Chelsea were battered by the Serie A giants in a 3-0 demolition in Italy. Roma have scored some truly stunning goals in their two games against Chelsea, but how often do you ever see a Blues team torn apart so easily by the same opposition?”

THE INDEPENDENT

“Many unhappy returns. On his first ever match back in Italy as a visiting manager, Antonio Conte suffered his joint-worst defeat as Chelsea manager, as they were smashed 3-0 by a rampant Roma.”
