Chelsea is fresh from a fifth consecutive win in all competitions as they recently nicked a 1-0 win against Newcastle United in the league.

The Blues, however, will have to be more vigilant as they travel to face a quality Ajax unit in a Group H fixture of the Champions League.

Ajax, on the other end, has yet to face defeat this season as they reside at the top spot in the Dutch League as well as their respective group in the European Competition.

In the Premier League Chelsea sits at fourth, while they find themselves at third in Group H.

Ajax has steamrolled past Lille and Valencia by scoring three goals each in both games of the Champions League. Whereas, Chelsea suffered a 1-0 loss to Valencia at home which was later followed by 2-1 win over Lille.
