Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has picked his side which will face Ajax in the Champions League semi final first leg at the new stadium this evening.

It is the biggest game in Tottenham’s history in a generation with both sides looking to set up a clash against either Liverpool or Real Madrid in the final of Europe’s most prestigious club competition.
