Chelsea came back from 4-1 down to draw 4-4 against Ajax at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night and stay in the hunt for top spot in our Champions League group.

Despite the incredible comeback, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard insists he isn’t happy with Chelsea’s overall play because the Blues made too many mistakes against Ajax.

“I can’t explain the game,” Lampard told BT Sport. “For all the things we might analyse back, the madness of the game, we are here for entertainment I suppose and anyone who watched that has to say what a game of football. Respect to Ajax, what a spectacle.

“I don’t think I have been in a game like it. The two own goals were the story of the first half. I said at half time it will be 3-3 or 4-4, we were so in the game.

“We looked dangerous and I felt we would build momentum. I am not happy overall, this is the Champions League and we made too many mistakes.

“The biggest pleasure is the spirit the whole stadium showed. I can’t give you much on the red cards, I didn’t really see what they were for.

“At half time I would have taken a draw for sure. Let’s take it as what it was. I was expecting somewhere towards 10 minutes of added time, not sure where four came from.”
