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. The Blues fought back from 4-1 down, to draw with Ajax 4-4 at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea could have even win, but their late winner were denied by VAR in a chaotic encounter which also saw two own goals, two penalties and both Ajax centre-backs receive red cards. Speaking to BT Sport 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." Lampard continued: “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. I just felt that we would build momentum and fortunately, we did."
