Training ground injury
The 24-year-old Frenchman damaged ligaments in his left ankle in training on Wednesday and faces six weeks of rehabilitation. This will sideline him for the home game against NAC and the trip to Willem II the following week - Ajax need just a point from these matches to win the championship ahead of PSV Eindhoven.
Escudé moved to Amsterdam from Stade Rennais FC last summer. He has appeared in 31 of Ajax's 32 Eredivisie games this season - more than any other player.
