Chelsea and Ajax meet tonight at Stamford Bridge for UEFA Champions League Matchday 4. The English side are looking for their third consecutive Champions League win while Ajax will try to avenge the 1-0 defeat at home against the Blues.
N'Golo Kante is back in Lampard's options for tonight, but the French international may not be in the starting lineup as he was sidelined for almost a month. The Spanish left-back Marcos Alonso should feature in the starting lineup after being rested last weekend in the 2-1 away victory agains Watford. Chelsea will try to secure their third consecutive Champions League win and the first at home. The Blues began their campaign losing at Stamford Bridge against Valencia, but managed to get two away wins at Lille and Amsterdam. Chelsea have won eight of their last nine games in all competitions and a win today would be an important step towards the next phase of the UEFA Champions League.
Kepa; Azpilicueta, Tomori, Zouma, Marcos Alonso; Jorginho, Kovacic, Willian, Mount, Pulisic; Abraham
Ajax started their UEFA Champions League campaign in good fashion, winning their first 2 matches by 3-0. However, the team lost 1-0 at home against Chelsea and is now second in Group H. That loss was the first since May, when the Dutch went down in last year's UEFA Champions League semi final against Tottenham. Ajax are unbeaten in the last 13 away trips in the Champions League, with some impressive results lately, namely the wins against Real Madrid, Juventus and Tottenham. The Eredivisie side in cruising on the Dutch League, sitting on top of the table with just 2 draws in 12 matches and an impressive record of 39 goals.
Onana; Dest, Veltman, Blind, Tagliafico; Martinez, Van de Beek, David Neres, Promes, Ziyech; Tadic
It's expected to be a very tight match between the two sides, as it was in the last matchday at Johan Cruijff Arena.
