Chelsea found it difficult against Roma in the Champions League on Wednesday night, as the Italian side had more possession than Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has admitted that he didn’t enjoy Chelsea’s game against Roma as the Blues drew the game 3-3 despite going up 2-0.

“I didn’t like the type of football we did for a lot of the game, but it’s right to take the responsibility for this,” said the Chelsea manager.

“I tried on one hand to protect my team, to become more solid and to move our central defender into midfield. On the other hand we lost totally our style of football.

“Sometimes you have to find the right solution to try to protect your team. Sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s bad. But you know very well our situation.

“It was good to draw. Roma deserved this result. I have to praise my players, because my players showed me a big effort, a big commitment tonight. Otherwise we lose the game.”
