Roma came away with all three points in Udine against a poor Zebrette side.
Under and Perotti will steal the headlines, but how did the rest of the team fare?
Alisson Becker (6.5): Rarely called into action and thus didn’t make a big impact on the game. He passed and distributed well enough, including a Cryuff turn on an onrushing De Paul.
Juan Jesus (6.5): Thought he played a good game and more importantly gave Kolarov some much needed rest.
Kostas Manolas (6.5): Was rarely challenged all match. Only time he was even remotely threatened was against Perica and he handled it with ease.
Federico Fazio (7): Solid, calm and comfortable. Against a sterile Udinese, that’s about all you can do.
Alessandro Florenzi (6): The Roman born player still at times looks like he has no business being a fullback. His crosses today left a lot to be desired. He would be better suited as a central midfielder.
Daniele De Rossi (6.5): A dazed and confused first half was canceled out by a solid second half. Roma needs the second half kind of De Rossi.
Lorenzo Pellegrini (7): Played well and hard. Made countless interceptions and clearances in vital areas. He was involved in the offense frequently, but still has large margins of improvements he can make.
Radja Nainggolan (6): A poor game by Radja’s standards. He struggled all match long with being effective and creating danger for the opposition. The only thing saving him is his assist for Perotti’s last minute goal.
Stephan El Shaarawy (5): The Italy international had a slew of chances and failed to finish any of them. He leaves Udinese massively disappointed.
Cengiz Under (8): Again, for the second week in a row, Under dazzles. He scored an absolute screamer in the 70th minute and prior to that had been menacing Udinese’s defense all match long. Exciting times for the Turk.
Edin Dzeko (6): Did the dirty work for his side but never really got a sniff at goal. Managed to fire a shot on target but they’ll be talking about his work rate and ball recovery in the post match film sessions.
Diego Perotti (7): Came on as a late sub and fired home an insurance goal. Nice cameo.
Kevin Strootman (6): Had roughly 15 minutes to play and did little of note.
Gregoire Defrel (N/A): Had less than 5 minutes on the pitch.
