Amsterdam bans sale of alcohol ahead Chelsea Ajax Champions League match

The Dutch authorities fear the Chelsea fans are likely to cause similar trouble ahead of the tie

It is Lampard's best spell since he took the job in the summer, joining from Championship side Derby County, and for Cole, Lampard and his players are only going to get better from here. Against the latter they were caught cold somewhat on the first weekend of the season, but United's form since then does Chelsea little favours - they've yet to score more than a single goal against any other team since. If they can pull off the win, it would go a long way to qualify for the next round.

After a goalless first half in the Dutch capital, substitute Michy Batshuayi scored the victor for the visitors when he turned home Christian Pulisic's low cross in the 86th minute, with his shot going in off the underside of the crossbar.

Dusan Tadic, Hakim Ziyech and Quincy Promes are expected to start in attack. Lampard heaped praise on Callum Hudson-Odoi during his press conference.

"I'm really happy for him", Lampard told reporters.
