Sep 24, 2019 11:25 AM

Chris Smalling will make his debut for Roma in a Wednesday match against Atalanta, according to manager Paulo Fonseca.

Smalling, who arrived on loan from Manchester United this summer, has missed the start of the season with an injury.

Roma have won their last three matches, scoring 10 goals.

“As I always tell the squad, we need to keep a level head,” he said at a Press conference.

“We need to stay focused; we haven’t done anything yet - we’ve only won three games. There’s still a lot to learn and improve and we need to keep our feet on the ground," said Fonseca.
