Chelsea legend names surprise “player of the tie” for Ajax matches

Chelsea legend Pat Nevin believes Cesar Azpolicueta was the player of the two matches against Ajax in the Champions League. The Blues beat Ajax 1-1 in the first leg of the clash, then played out a crazy 4-4 draw at Stamford Bridge. For Nevin, Azpilicueta was the stand-out performer for the Blues over the two matches. “I suppose it underlines just how well we had done against them over in Amsterdam," Nevin said. "Getting four points from six is magnificent in the circumstances. "I looked at this game in detail with Mario Melchiot and he was equally impressed with Chelsea against his other former side. Not only was he brilliant in Amsterdam from start to finish but he scored on Tuesday after being moved to left-back and but for the all-seeing eye of VAR, he would have hammered in the winner for 5-4. He was also up against Ajax’s best player so he had his difficult moments, but he stuck to his task and gave at least as good as he got.
