Moussa Sissoko has insisted that Tottenham Hotspur are still in the tie against Ajax and can go to Amsterdam and beat them to book a place in the Champions League final.

The midfielder came on in the 39th minute of the first leg at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in place of Jan Vertonghen after the defender had to be replaced after suffering a head injury.

Sissoko’s appearance certainly helped to galvanise the Tottenham players, who up until his introduction had looked by far the second best team on the pitch.  Pochettino decided to change formation from a 3-4-3 to 4-2-3-1 system and it helped to get a foothold back into the game.

The 29-year-old has transformed his fortunes in North London this season after two difficult campaigns following his big money move from Newcastle United. 

Spurs will take on the Dutch giants on Wednesday, knowing that they will need to get a goal away from home to bring themselves level. The return of Heung-min Son following his one-match suspension will certainly give the away side some attacking impetus which was lackingon Tuesday night.
