Chelsea are set to face off with Ajax on Wednesday in their 3 Champions League clash of the season.

The west London side head into the game fresh from their 1-0 victory over Newcastle United in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon as the Blues continued their improved form under Frank Lampard.

The fledgling England worldwide has scored nine times in 12 matches for Frank Lampard's team and is joint-level in the English Premier League's scoring charts with Sergio Aguero.

Lampard has used Chelsea's transfer ban to his advantage by promoting the likes of Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount into the first team, but his side trail Group H leaders Ajax by three points after two matches following their home loss to Valencia last month.

"He wants to listen, to get better, to score more goals, improve his game and help his team-mates".

"Ajax are like us, they have a lot of young players who like to keep the ball and play good football".

"And everyone got carried away a little in the short term". And, Frank Lampard has been handed another injury blow ahead of his side's third fixture in Europe's premier club competition.

He admits that in previous years Chelsea would have started out as favourites because of the experience they had in the squad.

Andreas Christensen remains out through injury while Antonio Rudiger hasn't travelled to Holland despite taking part in full training on Tuesday as Lampard feels he's still lacking match fitness. Chelsea must be prepared for sharp, speedy runs from David Neres, those of which the Brazilian performed so well in last season's campaign, along with prolific finishing from Dusan Tadic, and versatile dribbling from Hakim Ziyech. "That's pretty similar to Ajax", said Ten Hag.
