Chelsea 4-4 Ajax: Frank Lampard says Champions League game ‘right up there’


Eight goals, two red cards, two penalties, two own goals, a crucial video assistant referee intervention and both sides refusing to settle for a draw – the Champions League delivered another epic evening at Stamford Bridge.

If one moment could sum up a remarkable night of chaos it was seeing Ajax’s Noussair Mazraoui have a shot saved in the 88th minute. Why so? Well, he is Ajax’s right-back and was arriving on the overlap looking for a winner with the scores locked at 4-4.

Oh, and Ajax had nine men. Last year’s semi-finalists are no strangers to Champions League drama – just ask Tottenham – and they served up more on what former Blues midfielder Joe Cole described it as “one of the great Champions League nights at Chelsea”.
