It was a huge win for Chelsea at the Johan Cruyff Arena as a late Michy Batshuayi goal helped the Blues take all three points in a very crucial Champions League game.
It wasn’t an easy night for the Blues in Amsterdam, but the night just seemed to favour Chelsea as the VAR ruled in favour of Chelsea, Ajax hit the bar and Frank Lampard got his subs right.
At the end, Chelsea got the win and Lampard couldn’t hide his excitement at the three points. The Chelsea players fought hard for this victory, and Lampard was full of praise for his players for giving their all.
“It feels huge,” he said in his post-match press conference. “That always scares me because there’s a lot to do and it’s just six points halfway through the group now but we’re entitled to be excited about how we played tonight.’
“It can be a bit of a blueprint for us in terms of the work from the midfield players which was outstanding, the work of the wingers was outstanding, the work of the full-backs getting out to people, top players and stopping them making passes and easy decisions was absolutely outstanding.
“I could go through them all – Kurt Zouma, what a performance – but there’s no excuses for us now to dip from that.”
