Chelsea gave their fans another moment to remember this season after pulling back to draw in a match where they were 4-1 down at the half.

All of Chelsea players were thrilled after the match, and rightfully so.

The Blues were 4-1 down at the half-time. In an inspiring comeback helped by Ajax’s two red cards, the match ended in a 4-4 draw.

Christian Pulisic was one of the protagonists, playing the full 90 minutes of the match.

“He gives us confidence, and he is the one who pushes us,” the American told Chelsea’s official website.

Pulisic then hailed his team’s attitude and mentality:

“We showed a lot of resilience and a lot of fight. Being down 4-1 and to think we were still able to come back is crazy.

“It says a lot about our team. Anything is possible, that’s our mentality.”
