Chelsea won their last Premier League match against Watford 2-1 in a match that saw the brilliance of English duo Tammy Abraham and American Christian Pulisic, who scored the double for blues.
Ajax enter the game in their minds of revenge and nothing else, after the loss at home to the English club 1-0, scored by Belgian Michy Batshuayi in the last minutes of the game, and Ajax seeks to achieve a positive result, to return to the top of the group again.
Chelsea have been handed a major boost ahead of the game as N’Golo Kante has been passed fit to return to the squad after recovering from a groin injury that’s hampered him for the past month.

Ross Barkley is back in training after recovering from an ankle injury while Andreas Christensen is also training again following a month out with a thigh problem. However, Lampard may not risk them from the start tonight.
Antonio Rudiger remains out as he’s gone to see a specialist to help cure a niggling groin injury while Ruben Loftus-Cheek is still working his way back from an Achilles injury.
Marcos Alonso is pushing for a recall at left-back while Michy Batshuayi, Olivier Giroud, Pedro and Callum Hudson-Odoi are also hoping to feature if Lampard decides to freshen things up in attack.
