We have all the information you need ahead of the game against Ajax, including Frank Lampard’s press conference which can be watched live…
When and where
Our maiden competitive match against Ajax is at the Johan Cruyff Arena in the Dutch capital, the venue for our Europa League triumph in 2013.
The game kicks off at 5.55pm UK time. This kick-off time is new to the Champions League this season.
Frank Lampard’s press conference
Here are some of the possible discussion points…
Ross Barkley went off injured during the win over Newcastle, while N’Golo Kante, Toni Rudiger, Andreas Christensen and Emerson Palmieri were not involved. Lampard is likely to be asked who is available for selection.
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.
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.
Latest Chelsea team news
Barkley and Kante missed training at Cobham on Tuesday, but Emerson Palmieri was involved. Toni Rudiger was another out on the Cobham pitches but he is not yet match fit, and like Andreas Christensen and Ruben Loftus-Cheek is out.
