I hope its just cramps for Lang, otherwise that's the 3rd RW we've lost in the last 2 months.

Haha, what a debacle. I began to see the funny side after we were 2 goals up... but otherwise let’s just be thankful we got the points and forget this game!

Slightly worried, Lang and Promes substituted. I would hope that Lang would be ok for the next game and at most, Promes rested for the next game, and in time for the game against Valencia. Ajax have 4 games left. Willem II (Home) on Friday, then two big games, Tuesday, Valencia (home) then Sunday, AZ Alkmaar (away). Final game is at Home to Den Haag on Sunday

Hunts gets his second - no impact on the outcome, but it's nice to pad the goal difference and perhaps serves to dishearten the upcoming opponents.

A shambolic start by us but once we got back to 2-2 there was only going to be one winner and once KJH scored that was it .Lang another goal to crown a fine performance.KJH at the end doing what he he was born to do put the ball in the net ,still hungry aged 36 and the ideal player to have when you are 2-0 down .I still love seeing this guy ,one of my all time favourite players.

we hadn't beat Twente for 5 years so that made up for it.

We can all relax for the day now and our American pals, who must have got up very early, can enjoy their breakfast.

Ajax win in Enschede for the first time in six years, coming back from a two goal deficit. Early give aways led to counters overloading the Ajax defense and the clinical finishing left no doubts that the league leaders had some work to do. Lang with a hat trick in his first Eredivisie start and Huntelaar with the match winner along with a late goal left no doubt as to the outcome. Ajax remain unbeaten in the league. Promes left the match early on with a calf complaint but was on the bench in the second half so perhaps this is not a troubling injury.

Player Ratings:

Onana (6.5) - only had the one save on a low skidding free kick and stood no chance on the two break aways
Tagliafico (6) - some decent play but on a YC was subbed off in the 2nd half
Blind (6.5) - don't know if he was caught out on the 2nd Twente goal but his passing was again very good
Veltman (6.5) - decent enough
Mazraoui (6) - very poor in the first 30 minutes and then came on to play very well the rest of the way
Martinez (7) - dispossessed only one time by my count
van de Beek (6.5) - playing further back with Ziyech at 10 had a really good driving cross that let to one of Lang's goals
Ziyech (7) - good match and showed no effects of the bruised arm
Promes (5) - not much of an impact in the short shift before the calf injury
Tadic (6.5) - some good passing again for our Captain
Lang (7) - disastrous turnover on the first Twente goal followed by some very nice play and three goals in his first start
Huntelaar (7) - superb play in 70 minutes of play that included the match winner
Dest (6) - decent enough coming in at LB
Marin (NR) - not on long but did pick up a silly YC for a tackle from behind

Home to Willem II next weekend before entertaining Valencia with all to play for in the final CL group match
Appie Nouri will forever be remembered for his grace and humanity on and off the pitch!

Ajax Showtime is reporting that Labyad is out for “months”. Terrible luck for him - I actually don’t think he’s shown enough for Ajax but I still feel bad for the guy. He waited almost 1.5 seasons to get a proper run in the first team.

Talking of a proper run, I wonder if Hassane Bande will get a chance in the new year, if we ever have players injured, suspended or needing a rest.

In the first 20 minutes of today's game, we got what we deserved!! We where lucky (and they were tragic) against Lille or some other opponents. 2-0 down in Enschede and I'm not sure if we would make such a comeback in the past decade... Big compliments to the team and staff!! We are a real FOOTBALL MACHINE
May the Force be with you

Agree great shame for Labyad although I rate Lang a far better option.Bande is still hardly getting on as a sub for Jong and I am not sure he is yet 100% match fit.He will likely jut stay with Jong for the rest of the season.I wonder whether we will ever see him in the 1st team!!

PS Agree we really are a football machine
