Roma vs Chelsea: Antonio Conte will be happy with a point, says Nicholas
That is the view of former Arsenal forward and Sky Sports pundit Charlie Nicholas.
Chelsea can qualify out of Champions League Group C this evening if they beat Roma.
The Blues are yet to lose in their three games to date and sit top, five points clear of third placed Atletico Madrid.
Roma held Chelsea to a dramatic 3-3 draw when the two sides met at Stamford Bridge two weeks ago on matchday three.

Charlie Nicholas on Roma vs Chelsea
Striker Edin Dzeko scored two goals on that occasion and Nicholas reckons he will cause problems for the visitors tonight.
“Well, the last time they played away from home they had a magnificent result in Madrid didn’t they,” Nicholas said of Chelsea.
“But, I tipped a draw the last time in London two weeks ago and I don’t see it changing tonight.
“I can’t separate them.
“Chelsea are better on the counter attack but Dzeko is a big threat for them.
“They’re a good side Roma, I think Chelsea will be happy with a 1-1.”
