Latest Spurs news: Tottenham prepare hard for Champions League semi-final against Ajax

The Tottenham players were hard at it as they face Ajax in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final on Tuesday.

We play at home first and that should give us a bit of an advantage, however, our winning start at the new ground came to an end this weekend.

West Ham United ran out 1-0 winners, thanks to Michail Antonio’s strike, and Tottenham have to be at their best against the Dutch side.

Mauricio Pochettino was pictured during training, and he seemed to be watching something intensely.

Spurs have one major player out, with Son Heung-min suspended for the first leg. The attack should see Lucas Moura start and hopefully, the Brazilian can score a goal or two on Tuesday.

Old boys to help Tottenham?

There is a decent former Ajax contingent currently starring for Tottenham. Christian Eriksen, Jan Vertonghen and Davinson Sanchez all joined from the Dutch giants, while Toby Alderweireld has also played for the legendary team.

Harry Kane is also out of the clash on Tuesday due to a major injury and it will be interesting to see how Dele Alli does at the new stadium.

Eric Dier was also pictured in training, and his presence could derail Ajax’s midfield in the first leg.

Tottenham have to keep Ajax from scoring and gain an advantage in the first leg. The Dutch giants found the back of the net against at Juventus and Real Madrid away from home.
