Chelsea went into the break with their nerves jangled slightly and came out still looking shaky from Kolarov's effort, and Roma certainly took advantage of that as Džeko turned the tie on it's head.

In Turin, Juventus hit back to snatch a late 2-1 win at home to Sporting after gifting the Portuguese side an early lead with a freaky own goal by Alex Sandro. "You can win against the best teams and then lose against the last", said Dzeko of Chelsea's loss to Palace.

Though, an injury sustained during the Atletico clash is what has ruled him out tonight as well as several Premier League fixtures.

While Conte will be buoyed by Morata's return to training and his likely availability for the game with Roma, he will be concerned that Kante remains sidelined.

5 - Basel's 5-0 success against Benfica on the last match day was the Swiss team's biggest win in the Champions League. Antonio Rudiger, who joined the Blues from Wednesday's opponents in the summer, is a credible alternative.

Unlikely to return this season
We got a really good group and a lot of young guys - we're going to move forward and take that challenge. Information from The Associated Press was used in this report .

Conte will have been desperate for his side to get back on track afterSaturday's 2-1 defeat to bottom side Crystal Palace, and they looked to be back to normal after an excellent start to the contest. Recent history suggests otherwise.

Edin Dzeko scored twice on his 100th appearance for Roma at Stamford Bridge as the Italians stormed back from 2-0 down to lead 3-2 with 20 minutes remaining, only for Eden Hazard to salvage a point for English giants Chelsea.

Here is how we rated the player...

Chelsea aren't quite off to the start to the Premier League season that they want, but the Champions League has been a different story altogether. Fabregas and Bakayoko were Chelsea's best outfield players at Selhurst, indeed it was a precisely placed corner from the Spaniard that was met by the head of Bakayoko to give the Blues their only goal of the game. The Italian remains a firm favourite with the Stamford Bridge crowd, but should he fail to address team deficiencies, then boardroom pressure could make life hard.
