Roma picked up a 4-0 win away from home against Salernitana in the Serie A earlier tonight.

Second-half goals from Lorenzo Pellegrini, Jordan Veretout and Tammy Abraham sealed an emphatic win for the visitors.

Here at Anytime football, we look at the three major talking points from tonight’s contest.

Tammy Abraham’s impressive start to life in Italy

The former Chelsea striker signed for Roma on a permanent deal earlier this summer and he was outstanding against Fiorentina on his debut for the Italian club.

Despite failing to score in that game, Abraham managed to set up two goals for his teammates and the 23-year-old striker has now scored his first goal in Italian football tonight.

Abraham was undoubtedly one of the best players on the pitch tonight and the Roma fans will be excited with what they have seen from their new signing so far.

Jose Mourinho’s men have made an emphatic start to the season

Roma have won their first two matches of the season and they will be full of confidence heading into the international break.

The Italian outfit had a mediocre season last year and few would have expected them to start the season in red hot form.

It seems that Jose Mourinho’s arrival has galvanized the squad and they have managed to score seven goals in their first two matches.

Roma will be expected to win a trophy under Mourinho this season and the fans will be delighted with the way their team have started the campaign.

Defensive stability under Mourinho

Roma conceded 51 goals in the league last season and the defence was a major concern for them.

However, Mourinho’s arrival has added discipline and organisation to their back four. Roma have been excellent defensively so far.

The Italian outfit have conceded just once in their first two matches and they will be hoping to build on this and grind out more clean sheets in the coming months.
