#CHEAJA: Chelsea 4-4 Ajax (Watch All Goals)
Chelsea and nine-man Ajax played out a remarkable 4-4 draw as Frank Lampard’s men roared back from 4-1 down and were denied a late winner by VAR.
Ajax, semi-finalists last season, were in calm control and looked on course for victory when Donny van de Beek gave them a three-goal advantage 10 minutes after the break – but in a chaotic closing period Chelsea completed a remarkable recovery as the visitors lost their discipline.
Tammy Abraham netted an early own-goal (2) before Jorginho netted from the spot (4) but two goals before half-time from Quincy Promes (20) and another own-goal, this time from Kepa Arrizabalaga (35), put Ajax in control while Donny van de Beek (55) extended the lead after the break.
The result means Chelsea, Ajax and Valencia all have seven points with two group games remaining.
