Roma 1-0 Torino, Tammy Abraham lifts capital club to win

AS Roma's Tammy Abraham

Roma extended their winning streak in all competitions to three after defeating Torino 1-0 this evening in the Italian capital.

A first-half strike from Tammy Abraham, his fourth league goal of the season, proved to be enough for José Mourinho’s men, who needed a win in order to keep pace with Atalanta.

Despite enjoying nearly 70% possession, the Granata were left frustrated by Roma and ended the match with an xG (expected goals) under 1.00.

Roma, meanwhile, once again found themselves on the wrong end of a baffling refereeing mistake late in the first half, which could have extended their lead.

Speaking at full-time, Abraham was asked about how he’s enjoying himself at the club since joining from Chelsea on a permanent deal.

“As I said before, I’ve loved this club since day one,” he said smiling to DAZN. “Right away I felt at home. There’s nothing better than scoring in front of these supporters.”

“This was a tough match, there were some delicate moments for us.”

“But I kept my cool and stayed focused. I didn’t want to show any nervousness.”
