AS Roma midfielder Daniele De Rossi is playing down their Scudetto title chances.

The Giallorossi have now won their opening eight games, something only Juventus achieved on three occasions in the past.

"We won 11 in a row once and finished fifth, so these runs of victories count only to a certain degree," said De Rossi.

"They are nice, but without consistency throughout the season they're worth little."
