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.

However, Cesar Azpilicueta pulled one back for Chelsea, before Ajax lost Daley Blind and Joel Veltman within a minute to second yellow cards, with the dismissals followed by a penalty which Jorginho scored again to set up a frantic finale.
Substitute Reece James completed the comeback before a late Azpilicueta goal was ruled out by VAR.

The result means Chelsea, Ajax and Valencia all have seven points with two group games remaining.
