Tammy Abraham who joined Roma from Chelsea for a fee of £40m in August rued missing out on scoring three goals.

“I’ve got no words, wow. You can see what this match means for the supporters and for my teammates and I,” Abraham told DAZN after the game.

“I’ve heard so much talk about this game over the past few weeks so being here tonight and contributing two goals to this win…I couldn’t have asked for more.”

He continued, “I’m very settled here in Rome thanks to my teammates, the supporters, and the manager. Everyone made me feel at home from the first moment I got here.”

“When everyone is united and believes in what you are doing, these sorts of results happen. I’m here to help the team as much as possible, Roma have invested a lot in me and I want to repay them.”

Finally, “I’m just disappointed I missed my third goal in the second half! I could’ve had a hat trick. Anyway, I can’t complain, we won and I scored twice: we won in our stadium, in our home, in our Rome.”
