"We started this match badly, we reacted to equalise and then we lost Diego (Llorente), and that changed the face of the match, our organisation," said Mourinho. "There are so many things to say, we're missing important players, like Chris Smalling, and we don't have the solidity of last season. We have to get out of this situation with this group which has its qualities and its faults."

Roma were shocked after Albert Gudmundsson scored a goal ahead after five minutes before Bryan Cristante hauled them back into the game with an equaliser after 22 minutes. Genoa went on to score three more goals. Gudmundsson and Morten Thorsby combined superbly to set up Mateo Retegui to finish off with a half-volley. Thorsby added a third after 74 minutes with Junior Messias sending in the fourth seven minutes later through a porous Roman defence.

Roma are 16th with five points from six games, 10 points behind leaders Inter Milan, and only two clear of Udinese who are currently occupying 18th place. Genoa jumped to 11th place with seven points after their second win of the season.
