As the Champions League returned after the International break, more pressure was heaped onto the shoulders of Antonio Conte at Chelsea.

Following their dismal 2-1 loss to Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday, the Blues were yet again not at their best, drawing 3-3 with AS Roma at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday evening.

Conte's side did take a 2-0 lead in the first half courtesy of goals from David Luiz and Eden Hazard, but were pegged back by goals from former Manchester City duo Aleksandar Kolarov and Edin Dzeko.

The latter actually made it 3-2 late in the day, but Hazard managed to save a point in the end.

It leaves Chelsea's group very open, with Atletico Madrid only managing a 0-0 draw against Qarabag.

One of the big surprises before kick-off was seeing Alvaro Morata's name on the team sheet after the Spanish striker limped off with a hamstring injury in the 1-0 loss to Manchester City a few weeks back.

He missed the loss to Palace but was back to take the heat off of Michy Batshuayi.

He played in almost a front two alongside Hazard and looked pretty sharp on his return to competitive action.

However, there was one moment where the £58m summer signing was left feeling pretty humiliated and Dzeko was the architect.

The Bosnian striker was at his brilliant best, showing the world why he made the 30-man Ballon d'Or list and he produced a devastating nutmeg on Morata.

Just watch below and marvel at his brilliance. Also, have some sympathy for the Chelsea man.

Ouch, poor Morata.

Those watching were quick to pick up on his reaction, with the Spaniard almost standing back and admiring what had just happened to him.

TWITTER REACTS

It was very strange game for Chelsea, one in which Conte made several strange substitutions.

The one that drew the most attention was the removal of Hazard for the out-of-sorts Willian and even the Belgian couldn't understand why his boss had made the decision.

"I don’t know, I don’t know. I think sometimes the manager wants me on the bench at the end of the game," he said.

"I pushed to the maximum, I’ve just come back from the injury, so he made his choice. Sometimes the guy who comes on the pitch scores the goal, so I have nothing to say about this."
