Tottenham defender Danny Rose urges Premier League to help Spurs and Liverpool win Champions League

The Premier League should be doing more to help out English teams in the Champions League, Danny Rose has said ahead of Tottenham’s semi-final first leg clash with Ajax.

Spurs host the Dutch outfit next Tuesday, just three days after facing off against West Ham in a Premier League London derby.

Their semi-final opponents, on the other hand, have already played their last game before travelling to north London – a 4-2 defeat of Vitesse – with the Eredivisie moving a number of Ajax’s fixtures to help them out with their European adventure.

Liverpool’s last-four opponents Barcelona have not been gifted the same aid by LaLiga – they have league matches scheduled for both Saturdays before their semi-final fixtures – with the Reds actually having the advantage as they play this Friday before travelling to Spain for next Wednesday’s first leg.

This gives them an extra day’s rest compared to the Camp Nou club.
