Tammy Abraham, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, and a stunning Lorenzo Pellegrini free-kick put Roma 3-1 up with 20mins remaining as it was looking like another good day at the office for Jose Mourinho’s Men then the Old Lady fightback began.

First, Manuel Locatelli’s header made it 3-2 before a further two goals in the space of seven minutes came through close-range strikes from Dejan Kulusevski and Mattia De Sciglio to make it 3-4 in favour of the Old Lady.

The game had little importance in the title race but the defeat meant Roma drop down to seventh on 32 points while Juventus remain in fifth on 38 points; six points clear of sixth-place Fiorentina and three off Atalanta in fourth.
