Roma put up a sensational performance as they walloped Chelsea 3-0 on Tuesday in the UEFA Champions League at the Stadio Olympico.

Two first half goals from Stephan El Shaarawy and another by Perotti were enough to sink Chelsea.

The Blues would have progressed with a victory, but trailed within 39 seconds when Edin Dzeko flicked Aleksandar Kolarov's cross down to Stephan El Shaarawy, who smashed home from 25 yards.

Alvaro Morata missed a huge chance to equalise from close range, and El Shaarawy made it 2-0 when ex-Roma defender Antonio Rudiger failed to deal with Radja Nainggolan's long ball forward.

Chelsea had more shots - 14 to 13 - but were three behind when Diego Perotti cracked home from 20 yards after Blues defenders failed to close him down.

Roma should have led 4-0 when Chelsea's defenders all ran to Dzeko, who managed to square to a totally unmarked Perotti, but he fired over when he should have finished.
