Great start of the campaign by Josè Mourinho. Second win in a row following success in Turkey. And what a start by Tammy Abraham only days after his arrival from Chelsea. Gets the opposition keeper sent off, provides two assists for two goals, goes close to scoring by hitting the crossbar with an impressive header, runs like a wild horse with some fine touches. And what a great surprise is Eldor Shomurodov, class movements and power, unlucky not to score its fourth goal in four matches.
The starman is nonetheless Jordan Veretout winning the match with a fine brace. Mkhytarian also on target. Pity for Zaniolo for a stupid red card that might have cost us dear. Fiorentina looked very good and it was an even match at some stages, so it took a stubborn Roma team to secure the three points. Thanks to the new manager for bringing a new winning mentality. His appointment is crucial to see this team moving forward. He wanted those players and he got them. Next, sign a strong central midfielder like Xhaka and a solid defender to support the shaky backline. The future looks good. Next Trabzon and then to Salerno. Forza Roma!
