Ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League clash between Chelsea and Ajax in Holland, Sky Sports pundit Charlie Nicholas has given his prediction.

Nicholas is predicting a 2-2 draw between Chelsea and Ajax on Wednesday.

Explaining his prediction, Nicholas told Sky Sports: “These are always the same. Three players left Ajax, but they have real talent and are going well in the Eredivisie.

“Everybody is raving about Chelsea’s youngsters too – at the weekend I thought they would struggle against Newcastle.

“People are quite rightly complimenting Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount and Callum Hudson-Odoi. At this age, they will go through a quiet spell, but does Frank Lampard keep them in during this or take them out for the Champions League?

“Ajax will look to have a lot of possession whereas Chelsea normally get that. They are a good counter-attack team but Ajax will cause them problems.”
