Ajax vs Chelsea LIVE: Stream

Follow live updates as Chelsea travel to Amsterdam to take on Ajax in the Champions League this evening.

Frank Lampard’s side were defeated by Valencia in their opening Group H fixture but recovered with a gritty away win at Lille to restore the club’s hopes of advancing to the knockout stages.

You can follow live coverage of the match in the Netherlands after the latest updates from the Uefa Youth League fixture between the two sides below:

The spotlight tonight will be on Chelsea’s young guns. Lampard has given Champions League starts to five players (Mount, Abraham, Tomori, James, and Hudson-Odoi) 21 years or younger this season.
Speaking about the impact of Callum Hudson-Odoi and whether he is in the spotlight, Lampard said:

“I think he is but so are other players and with that comes my problem of selection for games as I have a competitive squad. Some are fresh to the Champions League and some have been here before, but just isolating Callum, his performance against Newcastle was huge signs of what we want to see.

“We know the talent is there and it is great his contract is signed now, and the problems he gave Newcastle were things I really want to see consistently from him, which are end product and delivery to the box, getting at people and running behind.

“Christian Pulisic’s impact was good when he came on as well. Callum gave me that in his display from the start and Christian gave me that in his display coming on, and in terms of the wingers I have, Willian gave me that, Pedro gives me that so I have good selection problems when people come on and make a difference. That is what we are all about.

“The extra level that is the Champions League – the detail, the focus, concentration for 90 minutes, making the most of tiny moments, will be a test for all the young players, not just Callum.”
