Chelsea’s big comeback
James completed an improbable comeback for Chelsea against Ajax in the Champions League yesterday as the hosts came from three goals down to draw 4-4 after the Dutch team was reduced to nine men.
In a roller-coaster match at Stamford Bridge, Frank Lampard’s side scored two own goals and two penalties while Ajax had two players sent off. Ajax, a semi-finalist last season, was 4-1 up at Stamford Bridge after 55 minutes and appeared headed for an easy victory. But Chelsea fought back and James (above) equalised with a low shot in the 74th.
