Chelsea came back from 4-1 to draw 4-4 against Ajax on Tuesday at Stamford Bridge.

The comeback was completed in the 74th minute through Reece James who became Chelsea’s youngest Champions League goalscorer.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard got all his substitutions right against Ajax. Replacing Marcos Alonso with Reece James, replacing the injured Mason Mount with Callum Hudson-Odoi and replacing Mateo Kovacic with Michy Batshuayi as the Blues pushed for the winner.

With Ajax having just 9 players on the pitch against Chelsea, some fans have suggested Lampard could have brought on Batshuayi much earlier.

The Belgian came on after 87 minutes but it has been suggested that change could have happened earlier given Chelsea had two more players than Ajax.

Do you think Lampard should have brought on Batshuayi earlier?
