Super Frank Lampard predicted Chelsea fightback at half- time in game of “madness”

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has revealed he predicted his team’s stunning fightback during half-time of their Champions League draw against Ajax on Tuesday.

The Blues were trailing last season’s semi-finalists 4-1 with just 30 minutes remaining in the game but clawed their way back to secure a point at Stamford Bridge.

And things could have been even better for the Premier League club, who were denied a late winner by VAR in a chaotic encounter which also saw two own goals, two penalties and both Ajax centre-backs receive red cards.

Speaking to reporters after the final whistle, Lampard said:

“I can’t explain the game.
“For all the things that we might analyse, the goals we conceded, the madness of the game, we are here for entertainment I suppose.

“Even though there were some nervy moments, some crazy moments, anyone who was watching that, anywhere, has to
say it was an incredible game of football.”

“Respect to Ajax, they’re a great team. What a spectacle.

“The two own goals were the story of our first half. I said to the lads at half-time, ‘I think we’re going to draw this, it could be 3-3 or 4-4, it could be 4-3 – we can win it’.

“I just felt we were so in the game and we were short of just that last pass in the final third.
