Dzeko struck in the 4-2 victory.

Fonseca said, I spoke to Edin Dzeko a great deal during pre-season. He is a very important player. He scored a goal today, could've had more, but he is an excellent forward.

We changed a few things this evening. Pellegrini played as a trequartista. With Jordan Veretout and Mkhitaryan, we've got a better capacity for maintaining possession. Everyone played well today.

I tell everyone to press high and that is an important element. It worked well this evening. That does mean running some risks, but the high press is important and, when done well, actually gives you fewer risks in defence."

Roma were 4-0 ahead after just 33 minutes with Dzeko, Bryan Cristante, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Justin Kluivert on target.

We should've done better in the second half, but the important thing was to get the victory and continue our improvement," Dzeko told Roma TV.

After going 4-0 up, the Coach told us not to rest on our laurels or lose momentum, but we did anyway. It was a bit of a struggle in the second half.

When it's 4-0, you have to let the ball do the work. If you keep possession, then Sassuolo have to run around after us. We wanted to go vertical a bit too quickly and the Coach didn't like that.

It was a spectacular first half and we need to build on that. We also hope the second half mistakes are not repeated. We believe in the approach that the Coach has taken."

The defender, who joined the Italian club on loan from Manchester United on September 1, pulled up with a muscle problem.

Smalling could have been set to make his bow at home to Sassuolo on Sunday, but will now undergo a scan to confirm his availability.

The 29-year-old departed Manchester United after nine seasons and 323 appearances for the club.

Roma are already without the likes of Leonardo Spinazzola, Davide Zappacosta, Diego Perotti and Cengiz Under through injury.

The Manchester United defender has joined Roma on a season-long from Manchester United.

Cole told TMW: "It won't be easy.

"The fans are expecting a lot. It is a difficult championship, one of the best leagues in the world and they are expecting a lot from him. He is a good centre-half, skilled in challenges and a good buy for Roma. I wish him luck.

"It is an intense experience. Win a match, you are the best. You lose it you are not good. But Smalling has played for a great club like Manchester United and knows how to handle certain expectations."

The Sun says he was so desperate to escape Arsenal, he sacrificed over HALF of his wages - and didn't even ask Roma about money before joining.

The ex-Manchester United star said: "I got a call from my agent and I wanted to come, because it was a great opportunity for me.

"I didn't even have a discussion with my agent about money."

Meanwhile, Roma sporting director Gianluca Petrachi confirmed Mkhitaryan was "giving up a lot" to join the club - but is grateful he can help them in their youthful revolution.

Petrachi revealed: "The idea was to invest in important young people.

"In situations where we found ourselves at the end of the market, or we made investments in young people or operations like those for Mkhi.

"He is a top player with very high costs... the boy has given up on lots of money to come to Rome. Time will tell if we have the chance to keep players like that."

The Armenia captain had his presentation this morning.

He stated: "I left England for Roma, I don't want to talk about the Premier. I want to concentrate here and by choosing this club I don't feel I have taken a step back.

"I had somehow been warned it was time for a change. This opportunity presented itself and I jumped at it with enthusiasm. No matter where you play, but there must be joy in playing. At Arsenal I no longer felt this pleasure."

Mkhitaryan also stated: "It was my desire to leave. I had decided to change. I chose Roma because I knew that it would play European competitions and lots of matches. For Arsenal it won't have been an easy decision to let me go on loan."

The former Manchester United midfielder has moved to Roma on-loan from Arsenal.

Lucescu worked with Mkhitaryan at Shakhtar and told TMW: "He is one of the players I love the most.

"Very clever, he adapts to all game systems, he has exceptional running ability and endurance.

"I had him play behind the striker and he was very strong. In England he was used in positions that were not his own. In a short time he will be good in Rome for his tactical ability."

Roma midfielder Nicolo Zaniolo was also dumped as "punishment" by Azzurri coach Roberto Mancini.

Nicolato said, These are talented players with great quality, but they too much respect the rules and reflect on their errors.

They need to go through the process, understand the profession must be approached in a certain way. Everyone makes mistakes, but the important thing is to learn from them.

Being a professional football player isn't just about talent, but working with the group and respecting the many rules within it."

Zaniolo rejected Spurs in favour of signing a new deal with the Italian giants.

"He renewed with Roma and is fine at Roma but obviously we enjoyed the great interest of Tottenham, who were the runners up in the Champions League," Claudio Vigorelli told The Daily Mail.

"Their concrete interest in him shows how good the boy's season was.

"Spurs thought a lot about Nicolo before taking Lo Celso, they focused their attention on him seriously, more than any other club even beyond the Premier League."
