Son Heung-min says he has every confidence Tottenham will be able to cope without him when they face Ajax next week. The South Korea forward, who scored three goals in the Champions League quarter-final tie against Manchester City, will miss the home leg of the semi-final against the Dutch side through suspension.

Son picked up his second yellow card of the competition in the second leg at City and must serve a one-match ban. It could be a crucial blow for Spurs who are also without Harry Kane for their biggest game of the season.
But Spurs have won four out of four games at their new stadium, without conceding a goal, ahead of Saturday’s Premier League match with West Ham and Son is positive his team-mates can cope against Ajax. “I try to be positive but missing this semi-final makes me so sad, so disappointed,” he said.
“I’m a very positive guy, I’m very comfortable with the lads so I’ll probably be more nervous watching in the stands than when I play. “But I trust my team, I trust my players, I trust this stadium so I’m not worried about it. Saturday is more important for me, so I’ll give everything for my team to get three points and then Champions League is next.”
