Sky Sports pundit Charlie Nicholas has admitted Chelsea’s Champions League clash against Ajax will be a tasty fixture.

Nicholas has also predicted a 2-1 victory for Chelsea over Ajax.

Explaining his prediction, he told Sky Sports: “This is a tasty fixture!

“We’ve seen a lot of what Ajax have done recently. They sold three or four key men in the summer and it makes them weaker, but it does not change their style or the manager’s philosophy. Chelsea wining there was a sensational result, but there is not much between the two sides.

“I still feel there are a few hiccups along the way. You cannot bully Ajax with the ball, but you can without it. Chelsea will want to get the technical edge over Ajax so we have a great game in prospect here. You can still see weaknesses in both teams, but it will be another fantastic result for Frank Lampard.”
