Chelsea threw away a 2-0 lead against Roma and even had to come from behind to draw the game against the Italian giants at Stamford Bridge.

Former Chelsea and England boss Glenn Hoddle is still struggling to get to grips with Chelsea’s decision to sell Nemanja Matic to Premier League rivals Manchester United and is not yet convinced by his replacement, Tiemoue Bakayako.

“Bakayoko’s another one who has to come into the fray – he’s got to do more for me,” Hoddle told BT Sport after the game.

“He’s come over with a reputation, I’m not sure quite yet what he’s got.

“He’s a big, strong player but he got knocked off the ball a few times tonight.

“But can he play it? Can he get in the box? Does he hold? I’m not sure.

“The loss of Matic as well. Matic going to United, I’m scratching my head still. You don’t give him to one of your rivals.

“And he’s playing superb for United and is a big miss for Chelsea.”
