The tense clash kicked off a nightmare for 24-year-old Abraham, after VAR ruled the ex-Chelsea player handled the ball inside the box within the first six minutes.

And it was Abraham’s former Chelsea team-mate, Olivier Giroud, who moved from this position to give AC Milan the lead after Abraham was booked.

Junior Messias doubled the advantage nine minutes later, leaving it all to Abraham and manager Jose Mourinho.

The Summer signing worth £34m gave Roma a glimmer of hope when he found the net just before the break.

A clever heel strike hit AC Milan goalkeeper Mike Maignan to cut the deficit in half.

His 13th goal in his impressive debut season in Serie A.

And Mourinho assured that Abraham would not receive an unnecessary second yellow card, which could land him suspended.

The former Manchester United manager rushed onto the pitch and sent the striker away after an altercation broke out between the two players.

He was seen barking at Abraham after his star man was caught up in a confrontation that threatened to cause him to take his marching orders.

Even so, there was nothing Mourinho could do about Rick Karsdorp when ordered to march by him, which effectively killed the game.

Rafael Leao raised the score to 3-1 after less than 10 minutes of play, clinically ending a quick counter-attack.

Then, Roma had nine men in the late game, when Gianluca Mancini knocked Leao in the box for the home side to take another penalty.

This time Zlatan Ibrahimovic stepped up, but he was rejected by Wolves goalkeeper Rui Patricio from 12 yards.

That turned out to be almost the final kick of the game as Abraham’s eventful evening finally drew to a close, with no point to show for it.
