Davinson Sanchez could miss Tottenham Hotspur’s trip to Ajax with an injury, according to Football London journalist Alasdair Gold.
The centre-back started in a back three in the first leg as Spurs lost 1-0 in north London, but it looks like he may be out for the reverse fixture in Amsterdam.
Hearing that Harry Kane won't be available to face Ajax on Wednesday, Erik Lamela could be fit for the bench but Davinson Sanchez has an injury and could miss out. I must stress that none of that is confirmed yet and we'll find out the latest tomorrow from Poch in Amsterdam.

Alasdair Gold broke the news via Twitter on Monday but stressed we won’t know for sure until Mauricio Pochettino’s press conference on Tuesday.
After Saturday’s defeat to Bournemouth, Pochettino suggested Jan Vertonghen will be fit enough to return from a head injury against Ajax.
With that in mind, Sanchez may not have started anyway as Tottenham struggled with a back three in the early stages of the first leg.
Gold also suggested Wednesday has come too soon for Harry Kane, but Erik Lamela could return to the bench after his latest lay-off.
It will be interesting to see whether Pochettino goes with a similar line-up to the team that started against Bournemouth, except with Vertonghen instead of Sanchez.
We will know more once the team news is confirmed on Tuesday.
