Tottenham toppled by Ajax and the handling of head injuries in football

Kelly Cates and the team analyse Tottenham's 1-0 defeat to Ajax in Champions League

Kelly Cates is joined by Dion Dublin, senior football reporter Ian Dennis and James Olley from the London Evening Standard after Tottenham lost 1-0 to Ajax in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final.

They discuss the handling of Spurs’ defender Jan Vertonghen’s head injury and whether he should have been allowed to play on initially before he was later substituted.

You can hear what Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has to say on the issue in his post-match press conference.

The panel also debate whether Tottenham can topple Ajax next week in the second leg and if the away goal can be cancelled out.

BBC football correspondent John Murray joins the pod from Barcelona as Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has been speaking ahead of their Champions League semi-final first leg at the Nou Camp on Wednesday night.

And it was an eventful night in the EFL – with three teams earning promotion.
