Chelsea will host Ajax in our fourth Champions League group stage game, and the match is expected to be a tough one at Stamford Bridge.

The game between the two sides at the Johan Cruyff ArenA two weeks ago was a difficult one and Chelsea only won it late on through an 86th minute Michy Batshuayi goal.

Frank Lampard has revealed that he has been training the team on playing fluid football as he wants better movement on and off the ball from the Chelsea team.

Lampard said in his press conference: “We are trying to be fluid in the movement of the ball and that does means moving it through central areas a lot and we need to be able receive the ball and move it in tight areas. It is a huge attribute of a lot of our players.

“In the first game against Ajax with the pace of the game, if you are not ready to accept the ball then it will find you out very quickly. We train on that sort of stuff and the players are talented on that, but we can always get better because the best teams do it even better than the rest.”
