Ajax vs Tottenham
Tottenham are set to take on Ajax on Wednesday evening in the second leg of their Champions League semi-final.
The first leg saw Spurs lose 1-0 at their new stadium without Harry Kane or Heung-min Son to call upon.
While Kane’s involvement on Wednesday is still up in their air, Son will be available as he only missed the last fixture due to suspension.
Tottenham will, however, be without Davidson Sanchez for the trip, with Jan Vertonghen also a doubt.
@daosanchez26 (thigh) – injury sustained against Bournemouth and unavailable.
@JanVertonghen (nasal) – returned to training, continues to be monitored and will wear a face mask to protect nose.

Eriksen to Real Madrid rumours
Ahead of the tie, Mauricio Pochettino hosted his pre-match press conference on Tuesday.
Pochettino spoke about a number of topics, one of which was Christian Eriksen moving to Real Madrid.
Spanish outlet AS linked the Spurs midfielder with a move to Los Blancos earlier today.
However, when asked about the link, Pochettino was very vague:
“Sorry I don’t talk about rumours. This is a player we want to keep.
When we spoke in London about De Jong it’s about a player who has signed for a club. I don’t talk about rumours.”
Poch is asked if Christian Eriksen has already signed for Real Madrid: “Sorry I don’t talk about rumours. This is a player we want to keep. When we spoke in London about De Jong it’s about a player who has signed for a club. I don’t talk about rumours.” https://t.co/hw2UkH9zfw
