Roma had a hard time in the second half as they saw less of the ball than Udinese(47.4 per cent)and were out-shot 7 to two, with Rui Patricio pushed into a couple of
conserves. The Giallorossi had to play the lasts a man light after Lorenzo Pellegrini was released a second yellow card for capturing Lazar Samardzic with his elbow, but they saw out their fourth triumph in five league video games this term.

all 3 points versus Udinese and move up to fourth in the standings, however he acknowledged his side dropped off in the second half of the contest.” We played well for about 35 minutes, “he said at his post-match press conference.

We played about 6 or 7 minutes with a man less and battled hard for the 3 points. “Pellegrini’s controversial dismissal means that he is set to miss Sunday’s Derby della Capitale showdown with bitter rivals Lazio, but Mourinho suggested he means to appeal versus the decision. “It was ridiculous. We had an academic meeting with the referee chiefs and the guidelines were discussed
for two hours, “Mourinho said.”Then we get to the game and see a red like this.”I can’t state anything except that it was absurd. Football is and always will be football. You can not change it into a non-contact sport.”Mourinho contributed to DAZN: “I do not know the legal systems in Italian football, however if we can appeal, then we must attempt. I have numerous doubts that anybody might say that was a deserved second yellow card.
“If there’s a method of appealing this card, then we should do that and enable him to play on Sunday. “Roma have now scored 22 goals in all competitors this
season, a tally that is improved by just Bayern Munich (38), Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund (both 23 )among clubs in Europe’s top 5 leagues. Abraham has actually been accountable for 3 of those and, with his strike versus Udinese, ended up being
the very first English striker to score a home goal in Serie A given that Jay Bothroyd against Ancona with Perugia back
in May 2004. The current signing from Chelsea has actually made a huge impact considering that joining, having also cracked in with a number of assists, and he is grateful to have actually been made to feel so welcome in his new surroundings.
“I knew there was a great deal of pressure with me can be found in, but I like the fans, the staff, they make me feel like family from the very first day and I need to repay them,”he informed DAZN.”I came here to win, I enjoy to win, the young boys aim to me, I need to provide confidence, and ideally we’ll continue getting outcomes.”
