West Ham’s Michail Antonio tells Ajax how to beat Tottenham

Tottenham vs Ajax

Ajax are set to travel to Tottenham this Tuesday for the first leg of their semi-final.

Tottenham will visit Amsterdam for the return leg on May 8th.

Heading into the tie it is Ajax who you might consider favourites.

Partially because the Dutch outfit have already beaten Real Madrid and Juventus in the Champions League this year. But also because of Spurs injury problems.

Mauricio Pochettino will be without the likes of Harry Kane, Heung-Min Son, Harry Winks and Serge Aurier on Tuesday.

Jan Vertonghen and Moussa Sissoko are also facing late fitness tests after missing out against West Ham on Saturday.

It was Tottenham’s first defeat at their new stadium.

The Hammers only goal of the game came from Michail Antonio.

After scoring the winner vs Spurs, Antonio was asked if West Ham’s display vs Tottenham will have helped Ajax prepare:

“Definitely. The gaffer said that we should make runs in behind them because their defence doesn’t like to be facing their own goal.

“We kept getting behind their full-backs and central defenders and that’s how we created the goal.”As quoted by the Evening Standard.
