Tottenham fans single out Danny Rose for praise vs Ajax

Tottenham 0-Ajax 1

Tottenham hosted Ajax in their first semi-final leg this Tuesday.

Spurs will make the trip to Ajax for the return leg on the 8th of May.

Heading into the game there was a lot of talk that Harry Kane may be featuring as a picture of his kit was posted by Ajax.

However, when the team sheets were revealed it showed Lucas and Fernando Llorente leading the line as Heung-Min Son was suspended for the tie.

Rose impresses vs Ajax

Spurs evening would then get off to a nightmare start.

After a dominant opening period, Ajax would take the lead in the 15th minute.

Mauricio Pochettino would then be handed another big headache as Jan Vertonghen had to come off in the 39th minute.

Tottenham would come out in the second half perhaps the brighter of the two sides.

However, while Spurs looked the better of the two teams for much of the second half, it remained 1-0.

Despite Spurs failing to beat Ajax at home, Spurs fans have been very impressed with Danny Rose’s display on Tuesday.

Playing in a pretty advanced role, Rose was arguably Spurs only decent player in the first half and carried on that display for the second 45 until he was subbed off.
