Kante may return for Chelsea's trip to Roma

Kante may return for Chelsea's trip to Roma

A win for Chelsea would secure a last-16 spot with two games to spare in Group C.

Both teams will be fully aware that a win in this game will be a crucial step towards qualification from the group.

"Kante has trained with us". We are recovering important players.

"I was a player and I know very well after an injury - above all a muscular problem, a bad injury - it's very important to listen to the player, to find out his sensation and then make the best decision for him and the team".

Central defender Kostas Manolas, who had come on as a late substitute, nearly became the next Roma name on the score sheet with a bullet header, but Courtois pulled off a spectacular reaction save to deny the Greek global.

Now occupying the top spot in Group C, Antonio Conte's Chelsea will have clear chances of qualifying for the next round of the prestigious European tournament despite playing away from home at the monumental Stadio Olimpico in Rome, Italy.

Roma would be two ahead at half-time after the Chelsea defence made a mess of handling a Roma ball into the penalty area and El Shaarawy ghosted in and neatly tucked a shot past Courtois for his second.

"He is happy. He is a fantastic manager and tries to do the best for Chelsea", Ranieri added.

Roma next travel to Atletico Madrid with Chelsea facing the long trip to Qarabag in Azerbaijan.

The Europa League looked a distinct possibility, but now, unbeaten and second place in Group C with leaders Chelsea arriving in the Eternal City, Roma have the chance to put one foot in the knockout stages. Roma take on Los Colchoneros in Madrid next but even if they were to beat Chelsea and then lose to the Spaniards in three weeks' time they would still be level on points and have Qarabag at home on the final day. "To stay at the top of this group is really important", said the Italian.

The London side's troubles have also been linked to their underwhelming transfer window while their league rivals spent heavily to significantly boost their squads.
