The Blues came from 4-1 down to secure a 4-4 draw against nine-man Ajax.
Ajax got an early lead just 2 minutes into the game as Azpilicueta’s foul near the touchline brought about a free-kick, which was whipped by Promes and in the chaos inside the Chelsea penalty area, Abraham gets the unfortunate last touch past Arrizabalaga.
But two minutes later, after conceding, Pulisic goes on a mazy run towards the visitors’ goal before being hauled down by Veltman in the penalty area.
Jorginho stepped forward, wrongfoots Onana and slots his third penalty of the season to level things and raise the volume at the Bridge once more.
20 minutes on, Ajax make it 2-1. Ziyech played a lovely cross towards the hosts’ six-yard area after more keep-ball from the visitors near the touchline and Promes reacts quickest to head it past Arrizabalaga in no man’s land.
10 minutes to half time, Ajax made it 3-1 with an own goal from Chelsea’s Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Alonso payed the price for his carelessness as Ziyech’s free-kick was whipped towards Arrizabalaga’s far post with such precision that it hits the bar before going into the back of the net by bouncing off of the Chelsea stopper’s face.
55 minutes on the clock, Van De Beek makes it 4-1. Not long after another Chelsea breakaway, Ajax counter at will down the wing and after Neres was tackled by Zouma, Ziyech collects the loose ball and calmly plays in Van De Beek who slots it past Arrizabalaga.
63rd minute Azpilicueta gets one back for the Blues. The skipper cajoled his teammates back to the centre circle following more Chelsea pressure inside the Ajax penalty area, with James’ cross directed towards Abraham and the latter’s touch helping it on to the onrushing right-back at the far post to poke it home.
5 minutes later, Blind receives yellow card to reduce Ajax to 10 men. The ex-Manchester United defender’s trip on Abraham was played on, and once Hudson-Odoi’s shot appeared to have hit Veltman’s hand in the penalty area, Rocchi stops play to hand Blind his second yellow.
Jorginho made no mistake from the spot once more as he scored his second penalty of the game after wrongfooting Omana once again.
74th minute, james pulled the Blues back to make it 4-4. Zouma’s header following Willian’s corner hit the bar and bounced clear only as far as the substitute, who rifles it home through a crowded Ajax penalty area.
