Chelsea recorded an incredible comeback at Stamford Bridge to Ajax in the Champions League on Tuesday evening.

Following our comeback from 4-1 to draw 4-4, Chelsea became the third English team in Champions League history to come from three goals behind to get a result and the first since Liverpool in May 2005 (3-3 vs AC Milan).

It was a massive win for Chelsea, and pundits can’t believe how Chelsea pulled that off.

BT Sport presenter Gary Lineker described the match against Ajax as a ‘game that didn’t make much sense’ and labeled it as wild west football as he went through the video highlights in the aftermath of an eventful evening at the Bridge.

“It shows you with football, you never know. Never give up,” said the former England striker.

“All hell broke loose. It was Wild West football,” he said

“We didn’t have a clue what was going on,’ former England defender Rio Ferdinand added. ‘We were all sitting here asking questions and it was crazy. But we said during the half-time break that one of these centre-halves would get sent off because they were both on yellow cards.

“That was a bad tackle from Daley Blind (on Abraham) and definitely a bookable offence. And then the handball.”

Rio Ferdinand was also left in shock as Chelsea completed a comeback and took a dig at the Chelsea fans who left early.

Ferdinand said on BT Sport: “You can’t walk out. The spirit within this stadium and this club the way they have responded to Frank then you can’t come out of this stadium even at 4-1 down.”
