Abraham, Smalling score in Roma win

Tammy Abraham netted twice and fellow Englishman Chris Smalling was also on the score sheet to give Roma an impressive Serie A win at Atalanta.

Abraham bundled home after just 57 seconds and smashed in Roma’s fourth to take his tally to 12 for the season.

Smalling converted a smart finish at the back post, while midfielder NicoloZaniolo had put Roma 2-0 in front.

Bryan Cristante’s own goal before half-time pulled one back for Atalanta, who also had a goal disallowed for offside.

Centre-back Jose Luis Palomino thought he had equalised for the home side for 2-2 but his goal was ruled out.

Smalling scored just four minutes later and Abraham thumped in a first-time finish to move Roma up to fifth in the table.

Jose Mourinho’s side sit level on points with Juventus, who won 2-0 at Bologna thanks to goals from Alvaro Morata and Juan Cuadrado.
