Chelsea end Ajax's unbeaten run

UEFA Champions League

Ajax Amsterdam 0-1 Chelsea

Chelsea claimed a second straight victory in Group H after securing victory away to Ajax Amsterdam on Wednesday evening.

The Dutch thought they had taken the lead through Quincy Promes midway through the first half, but the Dutchman's strike was overturned by the Video Assistant Referee.

As a result, Chelsea are the first team to defeat Ajax in all competitions this season.
