Chelsea’s young team produced yet another scintillating performance to end the unbeaten run of Ajax in the UEFA champions league, beating the host 0:1.
The win brings Chelsea level on points with Ajax at the top of the group through substitute Batshuayi’s close-range strike from a chance created by Pulišić, who produced a fine combo with Batshuayi after coming on late into the game.
The host, who suffered their first UEFA Champions League group stage defeat in ten matches and their first loss in any competition since May, will consider themselves unlucky, reflecting on Promes goal which was ruled off side in the first half and another header that hit the wood work.
The return leg at Stamford Bridge in match day four will be a thrilling encounter as both teams battle for top of the group spot.
Recall Chelsea had lost their first group stage match at home to Valencia but after two tricky away games and came home with the 6 points, this young side is in contention to top the group H in the UEFA champions league.
