Strootman: “It helps we’re playing at home.”

Kevin Strootman to Premium Sport before Roma-Chelsea;

“We played well in London and could have done better than 3-3. We know this is a special match. We struggled to get here (the Champions League) last season, but I think we are strong and we have to be ready for Chelsea. Chelsea have a few players back from injury, I think they’ll be stronger than at Stamford Bridge, but it always helps to play at home in front of 60,000 Roma supporters. Chelsea are very strong, they won the Premier League last season, but we fought to get here and we have to give our all. Even another 1-0 would be fine.”
