Chelsea play out thrilling 4-4 draw with Ajax
Frank Lampard’s Chelsea pulled off a stunning comeback from 4-1 down to earn a crucial Champions League point as Ajax ended with nine men at Stamford Bridge.
The Eredivisie champions, having made it to the semi-finals last season, were in a comfortable position and looked set for a victory when Donny van de Beek gave them a commanding three-goal lead 10 minutes after the break – but in a chaotic closing period Chelsea completed a remarkable fightback as the visitors lost their discipline.
Both sides had chances in the closing stages of the match but in the end settled for a draw which leaves them both level on seven points with Valencia, who beat Lille 4-1 in Group H.
