Be interesting to see how Lamps sets us up for this one. Is not like our most recent games, they will want the ball and want to attack us.

Back 3?

As you say it will be interesting, Lille are lethal on the counter so the back 3 made sense. Spurs played with a back 3 against them last season and were 2-0 down at half time.

Not sure who is fit but I'd go with;

                       Kepa
Azpi - Zouma - Tomori - Emerson
   Kovacic - Jorginho - Mount
      Pulisic - Giroud - Pedro

Rest Willian, CHO, Alonso, Tammy, Kante (?) for Burnley

Like seriously? Rest your best player (CHO) in a must win match? Nobody knows what will happen in any of our remaining fixtures, we just must win this one.

Have a bad feeling that they're going to do one on us, but it's two young sides up against each other so really it should be an exciting attacking game. My head says 2-1 to Ajax but my heart says we'll win 3-2

This will be a good contest. Ten Hag is a quality manager and his Ajax team play a good brand of football.

Our last month has been very good, so we're a chance. I'm predicting a draw, but would love to see us win our sixth consecutive match in all competitions.

Huge game, really difficult, I won't be too upset with the team if we lose this one, it's going to be an absolute battle and big European games like these are new to a lot of these players. 

So if we do end up getting outplayed and beaten, it's not the end of the world, keep that in mind.

Yes it is if you work in an Amsterdam office like I do! I  NEED those bragging rights.

A draw on Wednesday and three points on Saturday, for me Saturday is the more important game. Champions league is a nice bonus for our young team.

Looking forward to this, but Ajax are a great side (despite their team being gutted over the summer) and we are playing away from home.

If we come out of this game with a convincing win, it'll do wonders for our confidence going into saturdays game

A win, pleeeeaaase :beg:

I won't lie, a draw would be a great result for this young team - Ajax were last year's semi-finalist - I am sure they still have some vets that will school our youngsters on the pitch

btw, Ajax are taking the match vs Chelsea very seriously

translation: Erik ten Hag: Ajax not a favorite against Chelsea

I know I'm a lucky charm :brunette:  but not lucky enough to get a ticket :sad:  

I'm gonna have to watch it from the comfort of my sofa. Or from behind it more accurately :sofa:

We aren't getting a cleansheet anyway, they're lethal on the attack, but they have lost a lot of their defensive unit, I can see it being goals galore.
