Ajax Manager Erik Ten Hag Gives Perfect Response To Pochettino

Mauricio Pochettino Tottenham 2019

Mauricio Pochettino Tottenham 2019

The good news for Tottenham is that they will have the attacker back for the second leg, as his suspension only covers one match.

With Pochettino opting to field a three-man defence, Donny van de Beek grabbed an early goal to secure a precious 1-0 victory at Tottenham in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final on Tuesday.

Van de Beek was rewarded for his bursts forward into the opposition box with a goal in the 15th minute as he latched onto a through ball from Hakim Ziyech after some great play from the visitors.

Without their talisman Harry Kane, with no return date set for the injured striker, and the suspended Heung-min Son, Spurs lacked a cutting edge.

Getty Ajax will visit Tottenham Hotspur for the first leg.

Alderweireld rose through Ajax's youth system, went on to win four Eredivise titles, but unlike Vertonghen and Eriksen before him, he left the club in 2013 to join La Liga side Atletico Madrid. We help you discover publicly available material and act as a search engine.

'We must protect the player.

The victor will advance to the June 1 final in Madrid against either Barcelona or Liverpool. "As I said, this is not over and i'm sure we can go there and beat them and qualification".

Appeal over Kentucky Derby disqualification denied
West said that the appeal will center not on the decision but the way the stewards went about making the decision. One of his biggest issues with the Derby result was how the Kentucky Derby stewards handled the situation.

Although Spurs lost that match, they progress dramatically on the away goals rule, with the platform for their victory laid by the 26-year-old former Hamburg and Bayer Leverkusen man, who scored two first-half goals at the Etihad Stadium, having netted the victor in London a week previous. "1-0 is OK and next week we have to finish it", he told BT Sport.

The first glimpse of a chance for Ajax came in the fifth minute, when van de Beek forced ex-Ajax defender Davinson Sanchez into a mistake, though he was able to recover in time and prevent any cross in the final third.

That enforced introduction of Moussa Sissoko gave Spurs more midfield control and Alli twice came close before the hour, firing a half volley straight at Andre Onana and then heading over.

Denmark playmaker Eriksen was one of many Tottenham stars who failed to shine on the night and he conceded it was far from their best display.

"Maybe we didn't win a trophy, but what we achieve as a club is massive".

It was Tottenham's first European Cup semi-final since their debut season in the competition back in 1962, but despite the rarity of the occasion, they produced a lacklustre performance that will leave them wondering what could have been.

Sheer joy was etched on the face of every single face that had travelled from London to Manchester to witness Tottenham Hotspur overcoming a favoured City outfit in the second-leg of their Champions League Quarter-Final.
