Chelsea face Ajax at Stamford Bridge tonight in the Champions League and former England striker Michael Owen has backed the Blues to beat Ajax at Stamford Bridge.

Owen said: “Frank Lampard’s side have bounced back tremendously well in the Champions League when you consider they lost their opening game at home to Valencia.

“I think the Blues will edge what promises to be another terrific game between two inform, free-scoring sides.

“Chelsea were 2-1 winners against Watford at Vicarage Road on Saturday evening thanks to goals from Tammy Abraham and Christian Pulisic.

“The Blues are in fourth place in the table and six points ahead of fifth-placed Arsenal in the race to secure a place in next season’s Champions League.”
