One of their loan recruits, 20-year-old Lewis Baker, rescued a point for his side in the most stunning fashion on the weekend.
Trailing 2-1 to De Graafschap, Baker picked up the ball from a botched defensive clearance and netted a brilliant 30-yard strike in the 84th minute.
With the improvement of youth attaining game time at Chelsea since the departure of Jose Mourinho, Baker will be motivated to continue his good form before his return to West London.
The draw allowed Vitesse to go sixth in the Eredivisie table where they sit just three points off third-placed Ajax.
