It was goals galore at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night as Chelsea came from behind to hold Ajax to a 4-4 draw in one of the UEFA Champions League games.
The Blues were trailing 3-1 at half time and fell further behind 10 minutes into the second half as it looked like a miserable night for Frank Lampard’s men. However Chelsea turned the game on the head just after the hour mark and almost got a win but it ended in a stalemate at 4-4. Chelsea had a miserable start just two minutes into the game as Tammy Abraham with an own goal gifted Ajax an early lead. However the hosts responded quick enough as Jorginho restored parity from the penalty spot. While one would think that Chelsea would seize the game after the equaliser, it was Ajax that registered two more goals to take a 3-1 lead into half time.
