Tottenham’s expected lineup against Ajax for Champions League semifinal

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Tottenham Hotspur might be struggling against Ajax in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League semi-final this Tuesday due to various injuries in the squad.

Spurs were able to beat Manchester City in a closely fought quarter-final and will now be welcoming the surprise dutch semi-finalists at the new White Hart Lane.

Despite their win against the Manchester City, Son Heung-min has received a one-match ban for accumulating too many yellow cards and thus will be unavailable for the big game on Tuesday.

There are other players as well who will be on the sideline due to some serious injury concerns.

Moussa Sissoko remains out with his groin problem while their star forward Harry Kane is still out with an ankle injury. Which pretty much means that Spurs will lack good forwards up front.

Serge Aurier and Erik Lamela are both out as well, however, Harry Winks might be available for the game which may provide Spurs with some midfield options.

Jan Vertonghen and Kieran Trippier did not start against West Ham and are very likely to feature in the semi-finals.

Victor Wanyama and Fernando Llorente might also get a chance in the absence of critical forwards and midfielders.

Lucas Moura is also expected to start as he was taken off from the last game quite early and might be feeling fit to play.

We expect Danny Rose to return to a more traditional left-back role and thus Ben Davies might not be featuring in the upcoming game.

Dele Alli and Eric Dier along with Wanyama are expected to man the midfield so that he can be free to support Llorente.
