You didn’t think one of the greatest managers of all time would end his 1,000th match as a manager with anything other than the three points, did you? Well, if it felt like this one was heading down the path of Roma dropping two or even all three points, we forgive you. Because after years of suffering through missed opportunities in tough matches, Mourinho’s men changed the narrative and got it done yesterday.

The winning mentality that is a trademark of The Special One was on full display yesterday. Despite Sassuolo coming at the Giallorossi time after time, the Lupi’s defense bent without breaking and Roma’s attack keep going for it until the bitter end. There was no settling for a draw in this one and Stephan El Shaarawy’s late strike ensured that Mourinho won this monumental match in grand fashion.

So, join us as we discuss all of the action from Sunday’s win over Sassuolo.
