Ahead of tonight’s Champions League game between Chelsea and Ajax at Stamford Bridge, Ajax boss Erik ten Hag believes the Blues are one of the favourites to win the Champions League.

Ajax, who got to the semifinal of the Champions League last season, have been backed by many to easily progress from the group but Ten Hag is playing the ‘underdog card’ ahead of tonight’s game.

“They are one of the favourites,” Ten Hag said.

“It’s going to be difficult, but every game is going to be difficult. We trust in ourselves.

“We know we have to play perfectly, give our best performance. Then we will have a chance.”
