Michy Batshuayi replaced Tammy Abraham in the second half against Ajax and scored the winner for Chelsea late in the game.

Before Batshuayi’s goal against Ajax, the Belgian missed a very good chance to score with just the Ajax goalkeeper to beat.

Abraham has revealed he believed Chelsea will create another chance after Batshuayi’s missed chance against Ajax.

“When he missed the first chance, I knew we’d create another one,” Abraham told Chelsea’s official website.

“He would have been frustrated and we were all frustrated but luckily Christian Pulisic produced some magic on the left-wing and put in a great cross, and Michy finished it. We knew we needed to win so we came here believing in each other and to get the goal at the end was massive for us.

“These are the kind of performances that we need, coming away to such a great stadium and taking all three points. We had to stay patient because Ajax kept the ball well and created a lot of chances. It’s never easy to play them so we just had to stay together and that’s what we did.

“We can go as far as possible. We’ve got a fantastic team, our togetherness is unreal and we just have to keep that fighting spirit now.”
