Eden Hazard scored twice as Chelsea battled to earn a 3-3 draw against a resilient Roma in a thrilling Champions League game on Wednesday at Stamford Bridge.
The win keeps the Premier League champions on the roof of Group C on seven points from three games. Defender David Luis had put the Blues in front, before Hazard made it 2-0 on 37 minutes.
But the Italian side pulled one back before half time through former Manchester City man Aleksandar Kolarov.
Another ex-City player Edin Dzeko then leveled the score for Roma on 64 minutes, before making striking again to stun the home fans.
But Antonio Conte’s men fought back to earn a share of the spoils with 15 minutes left when Hazard equalised from Pedro’s cross.

Donald Trump told the pregnant widow of a US soldier killed in combat that her husband "knew what he signed up for" moments before she greeted his coffin.
Lance Sergeant David Johnson, 25, was among four elite special forces killed when their patrol was ambushed by Islamic militants in Niger.
The US President has been criticised for failing to speak about the incident, amid increasing reports that the mission was flawed.
Trump failed to meet Sgt Johnson's coffin when it first arrived back on American soil on Saturday and went golfing instead.
And to add further insult, when he finally called the soldier's widow Myeshia Johnson on Tuesday he showed a distinct lack of compassion.
Instead Trump told her: "He knew what he signed up for... but when it happens it hurts anyway".
Minutes later, Mrs Johnson, who is expecting the couple's third child in January, wept uncontrollably over her husband's coffin at Miami Airport.
Her six-year-old daughter stood by her stoically in highly emotional scenes.

The is confusion in Kogi State as the Abuja-Lokoja highway is completely locked down following the alleged killing of a tanker driver by the officials of the state revenue board.
According to an eyewitness, the revenue officials were said to have flagged down the truck driver which was coming from Maiduguri and heading to the South West at about 1:00a.m, early Wednesday morning.
His vehicle was said to have been impounded until he paid a revenue fee of N5,000.
This was said to have generated a heated argument between the truck driver and the revenue officials which later escalated to physical fight.
The eyewitness also said one of the revenue officials, who was said to be dead drunk, allegedly hit the tanker driver with an iron object, which led to the death of the driver.
This was said to have infuriated other truck drivers who, in a show of solidarity, parked their vehicles on the highway.
The revenue officials were said to have vanished into the bush.
Hundreds of motorists passing the highway are currently stranded as movement of vehicles had been halted.Dailypost

Tourists are now travelling to Serbia for sex at 'animal brothels', it has been claimed.
The capital Belgrade is said to be a hotspot for 'zoophiles' who enjoy sex with animals such as goats, sheep, donkeys, dogs, cats, geese and cows.
The eastern European city can be reached via a direct flight from London, but an animal rights group claims most groups come via organised 'bus tours'.
Online adverts offer animal sex from between 70 and 150 Euros (£60 to £135) with visitors paying an extra 50 Euros (£45) to film themselves, it is claimed.
An investigation into the horrifying trend was broadcast by TV channel RTL recently.
It included an image of a dog apparently wearing fish-net suspenders and high heels.
Pavle Bihal, who runs an anti-animal cruelty group called Leviathan, wants the clubs closed down.
He said: "We have information about a club, which is actually an apartment, where all this happens.
"We are currently waiting for the location to be confirmed so we can report all to the police."
The highest number of animal sex tourists come from Germany, Holland, Sweden and Great Britain, Bihal's group claims.
There are thought to be a number of specialised estates and stables in the countryside catering to their depraved tastes.
Farmers who run the 'brothels' don't see anything wrong with the setup, according to Leviathan.

A bus which was filled with passengers traveling – fell into to the sinkhole. The number of casualties is yet to be ascertained as at the time of filing this report.
Traffic was brought to a standstill after the incident as motorists devised alternative routes.
According to reports, the highway has remained a nightmare for motorists and commuters for years now, as they spend over five to six hours driving to Ikom from Calabar, instead of two or three hours due to bad road.

A fearless three-year-old boy was filmed by his family in Vietnam as he rode on a 20-foot python in floodwaters.
The video, which has since gone viral, shows the boy, Truong, laughing while sitting on the giant serpent and having a ride. The boy’s aunt, Nu Nguyen, refuted claims that the footage is fake, revealing to Daily Mail that the family have had the python for four years as a pet.
She said: “The python is 80kg…and very gentle. It was a rainy day and the water flooded to the edge of the yard. So they put the python in there to play and relax.”

The leader of a pro-Biafran group that wants to break away from Nigeria failed to show up in court on Tuesday as his treason trial resumed, an AFP reporter said.
Nnamdi Kanu has not been seen for several weeks and his lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, told the Federal High Court in Abuja his client was “in the custody of the (federal government)”.
The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) group is facing a number of charges linked to his calls for a separate state for the Igbo people who dominate the southeast. He was first arrested in October 2015, stoking long-held grievances that have festered since a previous declaration of independence in 1967 sparked a bloody, 30-month civil war.
Kanu, who also runs the London-based Radio Biafra station, was released on bail in April this year on health grounds but under strict terms.
The judge ordered him not to attend any rally, be in a crowd of more than 10 people or give any media interviews while on bail.
He was ordered to pay sureties totalling 300 million naira ($835,000, 710,000 euros) to ensure his attendance at trial.
Ejiofor told reporters at the time they were “very sure we will fulfil the conditions for bail”. But since then, Kanu has rarely been out of the spotlight.
He told AFP in an interview in May to mark the 50th anniversary of the declaration of independence that he was “more determined than ever” to secure a breakaway republic.
He also called for “civil disobedience” until a referendum was granted on self-determination.
Kanu’s whereabouts have been the source of increasing speculation in recent weeks, after a military surge in his home city of Umuahia and the surrounding area.
The IPOB leader’s younger brother, Prince Emmanuel Kanu, said the army attacked the family’s compound last month, killing 28.
The army has denied the claim and also that they were holding Kanu, as their tactics come in for criticism for fueling tensions in the restive region.
“If anything happens to him (Kanu), the reactions are likely to be very violent in the southeast,” said security consultant Don Okereke.Guardian

It is traditionally perceived as a risque entertainment, performed behind closed doors for paying clientele. But pole dancing
could become an Olympic sport after it was officially recognised as a sport.
The Global Association of International Sports Federation (GAISF) gave it ‘observer status’ – meaning it will now provisionally be classified as a sport.
It follows an 11-year fight by Katie Coates, 41, president of the international pole sports federation (IPSF), who is campaigning for it to become part of the Olympic Games by 2024.
