HAVE YOU HEARD LATEST GIST SPORTS GIST CHELSEA COME FROM 4-1 DOWN TO SECURE 4-4 DRAW AGAINST AJAX By Admin Posted on November 6, 2019 2 min read 0 0 311 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Pinterest Share on Linkedin Chelsea came back from 4-1 down to secure a 4-4 draw against nine-man Ajax as a memorable night at Stamford Bridge left both sides with work to do to reach the last 16 of the Champions League. The London side seemed destined for a second straight home defeat in Europe as first-half own goals from Tammy Abraham and Kepa Arrizabalaga added to Quincy Promes’ header and predatory finish from Donny Van der Beek to hand the Dutch champions a 4-1 lead. However, Cesar Azpilicueta brought Chelsea back into the game at 4-2, then the Ajax team was reduced to nine men by second yellow cards for Daley Blind and Joel Veltman in the move that led to the hosts being awarded their second penalty of the night. Jorginho had brought Chelsea level at 1-1 from the spot in the first half and converted once more. Reece James then levelled for the Blues and only VAR denied Chelsea a famous victory when Azpilicueta’s strike was ruled out for a handball by Abraham. Both sides are now locked on seven points at top of Group H with Valencia, who were 4-1 winners over Lille. Chelsea had won their previous seven Premier and Champions League games with Lampard’s young side earning rave reviews for their attacking intent.
