Tottenham have been frustrating to watch in recent months with consistent injury problems, dropping points in vital games and coming close to dropping out of the top four.
Spurs only have just qualified for the Champions League next season with Arsenal dropping points at the weekend and now only have their Champions League semi-final left to focus on. Spurs seemed to have saved their best football for the knock-out rounds of the Champions League since the turn of the year and now face their biggest task yet.
Spurs travel to Amsterdam 1-0 down on aggregate after a lacklustre performance in the first leg. Heung-Min Son has been Spurs’ main man in Harry Kane’s absence and was sorely missed last time out. This could be his last game of the season after receiving a red card in the league against Bournemouth and he could be the difference for Spurs.
Spurs are in need of a big performance away from home to get to the Champions League final, here’s how we think Spurs will line up:
GK: Hugo Lloris
The French skipper made some vital saves that have kept Spurs in this tie. He’ll have to be on the top of his game yet again for this one.
RB: Kieren Trippier
Trippier has found some kind of consistency and the number of errors in his game has decreased over the past couple of weeks.
CB: Jan Vertonghen
After being substituted with concussion in the home tie, Vertonghen has been cleared and is fit enough to start for this one.
CB: Toby Alderweireld
The Belgian always plays his best football alongside Vertonghen and the pair will be looking for a clean sheet against their former side.
LB: Danny Rose
Rose has been arguably Spurs’ best performer since the turn of the year as well in the home tie against Ajax.
CDM: Victor Wanyama
After a poor performance against Bournemouth, Eric Dier is likely to be dropped in favour of Wanyama.
CM: Moussa Sissoko
Sissoko changed the game for Spurs in the home tie and will be vital in breaking down Ajax’s play.
CM: Christian Eriksen
Eriksen was poor last time out against Ajax and wasted the opportunity to step up for his team. This is his last chance to help send Spurs to the biggest game in their history.
CAM: Dele Alli
Alli was another player that failed to grasp the opportunity last week and needs to step up and prove himself on Europe’s biggest stage.
ST: Lucas Moura
Moura hasn’t enjoyed his partnership with Fernando Llorente in recent weeks and will be looking forward to playing alongside Son yet again.
ST: Heung-Min Son
Son could be the game changer for Spurs in this one. His pace will be a huge boost.
