Significance of the game

Ajax have a 100 per cent record after two games, while us and Valencia are locked on three points. In what looks set to be a tight group, the forthcoming fixtures against Ajax take on extra significance, and Lampard could be asked what would be a good result in Amsterdam. 

Ajax challenge

Last season’s Champions League semi-finalists have made a good start to this campaign despite losing some key players over the summer, and Lampard could give his view on what has made the Dutch champions such a dangerous team in recent times.
