  • Lucas Moura believes qualification for the Champions League knockout stages is still possible

Tottenham Hotspur have staged a dramatic turnaround at Wembley Stadium to earn a 2-1 win over PSV Eindhoven that keeps them alive in the Champions League.

But captain Harry Kane breathed fresh life into his side's European campaign by equalising in the 78th minute and then seeing an 89th-minute header deflect off PSV substitute Trent Sainsbury and trickle over the line.

"I understand, I like it because after almost five years I think it's the first time that they've been critical of me and didn't agree with me, but in the end [it ended] 2-1", Pochettino told reporters with a laugh.

Harry Kane hopes Tottenham's success on the road will pay dividends later in the season and that they will still be in a position to challenge the Premier League leaders when they get a run of home games.

"Bitter sweet, my first game in the Champions League and then double deflection it goes in last minute off me for the victor", Sainsbury told Optus Sport. "I think today with the circumstances, we did well". We want to be in the next stage - it's not only that we need the help of Barcelona winning the game; we need to do our job and we need to perform as well.

Spurs appeared to be doomed as they trailed for much of the Group B match, but they turned things around late on to capitalise on the Italian side dropping points at home to Barcelona.

Good evening! It's done or die for Tottenham in the Champions League tonight. "If we are capable of beating them, the percentage to be in the next stage will be high". 'The early goal increased the belief for the opponents and we created chances and dominated the game and could not score.

PSV's resistance was finally broken Kane found the bottom-right corner with a left-footed strike following a Fernando Llorente knockdown.


The Spurs boss praised the spirit of his players after four games in nine days.

"We find our reward and the team never gave up and showed big character and personality and I am so pleased with everything". The trio will lead the attack for Mark van Bommel's side on Tuesday.

'Well look it's the same for both teams, ' Kane told reporters when asked about Van Bommel's comments.

"You know he'll just brush that aside".

"We need to do our job".

"It's not good but we're not complaining". A win means the top two don't get too far away from them.

Speaking about his team's performance, he added: "I think that they fight like lions".

Jurgen Klopp's side stay second in Group C after Napoli and Paris Saint-Germain played out a 1-1 draw in Naples to leave the entire group separated by only two points going into the final two matchdays.
