Late turnaround keeps Tottenham Hotspur alive in Champions League

Late turnaround keeps Tottenham Hotspur alive in Champions League”

In the end I think we found the reward, and the team never gave up and showed big character and personality.

Only in Pochettino's first season in charge - the 2014-15 campaign - have Spurs posed less of a goal threat.

"It's another game we must win, we want to have the possibility to go to the next stage", said Pochettino, who praised his players' efforts after an arduous run of four games in eight days.

'We can beat them.

"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. In team news, Tottenham will be without keeper Hugo Loris who is suspended after picking up a red card in the away game last time out.

PSV, which stayed on one point and can not now qualify for the knockout stage, had defended stoutly after going ahead through Luuk De Jong's header from Gaston Pereiro's corner.

Lloris is banned for Tuesday's must-win Champions League visit of PSV while Mousa Dembele is an injury doubt after coming off at Molineux with an ankle problem.

Striker Kane finally levelled the contest when he fired home after being teed up by substitute Fernando Llorente.

Tottenham will host PSV at their temporary home of Wembley and Lloris has dismissed fears over the state of a pitch damaged badly by National Football League matches.

The unfortunate own goal proved decisive as Spurs held on for a crucial three points which all but ended PSV's hopes of progression to the knockout stages.

'The pitch is s***,' said Van Bommel.

"You know what I mean, it's bad".

Spurs' pressure eventually told in the 78th minute as Kane got the equaliser and he then had a major role in the victor as Trent Sainsbury deflected the England striker's header past the despairing Zoet, teeing up Mauricio Pochettino's men nicely for two huge clashed with Inter and Barcelona.

"After one minute we get a goal and we try to defend it until the end".

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

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino believes that goalkeeping coach Tony Jimenez needs to be given credit for helping the players improve and grow. We did everything, everybody was fighting for the result.

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.
