AS Roma boss Di Francesco expecting Chelsea to be motivated after away defeat

by -

AS Roma manager Eusebio Di Francesco gave his thoughts ahead of upcoming Champions League clash against Chelsea.

The Italian manager said: “We have to use all our physical strength against them, but at the same time also use the other two characteristics if we want to win. I could look at our opponents and see they have injury problems as well, but you know [Antonio] Conte was here last year as well so it’s not always about changing methods”.

“There is always the option to change things – we have different players and certainly I will switch some things around but I don’t want to reveal that here today. It’s a decision I will make tomorrow.”

The Giallorossi suffered a home defeat in the last Serie A game against Napoli, who are currently leading the table with 24 points. Roma, who still have one game in hand, are sitting 5th with 15 points.

“I want a different approach compared to the game against Napoli, – Di Francesco claimed – because we know tomorrow it will be a different opponent who are also motivated because they lost their last game in the league.

“We will be facing a different set of challenges tomorrow, and I will look at mine squad and it is certain we will have a different approach for the game to be ready for it.”
