It was a mind-blowing game between Chelsea and Ajax, as both teams played out a 4-4 draw at Stamford Bridge. This game had everything from VAR drama to penalties, own goals, red cards and exhilarating attacking play. At the end, Chelsea came back from 4-1 to draw the game 4-4.

See the player ratings below

Kepa: Conceded four goals that will piss him off, particularly the third goal which was his own goal as the ball hit his face and entered the net. He made two very crucial saves late on to keep Chelsea in the game. 5/10

Azpilicueta: One thing Azpilicueta brought to the team tonight was spirit. He could be blamed for losing sight of Quicny Promes for Ajax second goal but he was captain fantastic as he lifted up the morale of the players and led by example by scoring the second goal and roaring his team forward for a massive comeback. 7/10

Tomori: Wasn’t a great night in defence particularly beside Alonso who had an awful game. The Chelsea defence was below par. 5/10

Zouma: Although Chelsea’s defence was all over the place, Zouma’s second-half performance was excellent. He had a good game in the second 45 minutes and almost nearly got a stunning goal from a solo run just after the restart. His header thundered the bar and served as an assist for James to score. 6/10

Alonso: This has to be his worst game for Chelsea. He gave away careless free-kicks in dangerous areas, was caught out defensively and spoiled the attack with some awful crosses. Subbed off at half-time.  2/10

Jorginho: Wasn’t too effective in the first-half as Chelsea looked all over the place, but made his impact felt in the second period and calmly scored two penalties for the Blues. 7/10

Kovacic: Might not have been at his best but he still did okay with his driving runs. 6/10

Mount: Was really anonymous tonight as he struggled to get a grip of the game. 5/10

Willian: Lost a lot of balls in the first-half and his passes were sloppy too, but he was excellent in the second-half and was one of the drivers of the Chelsea comeback. 6/10

Pulisic: Won the penalty for Chelsea in the first-half and was a constant threat for the Blues. 7/10

Tammy Abraham: Was anonymous in the first-half and unlucky to score an own goal. Did well in the second-half but couldn’t find the net. 6/10


James: Came on for Alonso at half-time and was brilliant. Added spark to the game for Chelsea and kept bombarding deadly cross after cross for the Blues. Scored a stunning goal to complete the comeback for Chelsea. 7/10

Hudson-Odoi: Did brilliantly after coming on as he was a constant threat from the left flank. 6/10

Batshuayi: Could have saved the day for Chelsea today but Ajax goalkeeper Onana denied him. Good impact. 6/10
