PSV led the match 1-0 until the 76th minute, when Harry Kane equalised and then put away the victor. Then in one game anything can happen. They want to play with nine or 10 strikers when you're losing the game. "In the end we managed to take a couple but I think we deserved it".

Tottenham is in need of a win against PSV and hope for a favour from Barcelona if they are to keep their hopes of qualification alive.

"It was completely unfair, the (score), during the game because to concede so early increased their belief. I am so optimistic".

According to WhoScored, no player has created more chances in a single game in this season's Champions League than Winks did against PSV.

The visiting defense was finally breached when Kane met a lay-off from substitute Fernando Llorente with a left-footed shot into the corner.

"It's not good but we're not complaining". If we are able to beat them the chance to reach the next stage if higher'.

"We have to stay up there as long as we can", said Kane, who scored Tottenham's third goal at Molineux.

Pochettino added: "We never give up, that's the most important characteristic".

Wembley had hosted an National Football League game eight days before Tuesday's clash, and though ground staff have worked tirelessly to get the pitch in working order, Van Bommel did not hold back in his description of the surface. Mark van Bommel's side were made to rue the miss as one minute from time, Kane's header deflected off of Nick Viergever and then Trent Sainsbury before finding the bottom corner.

Pochettino said he was "so pleased" with his team after they came back to win late on but said that they should heed the warning of once again falling behind in the opening stages.

Here, we use Opta data to dig a little deeper into Tottenham's Premier League form to see what the underlying causes of Pochettino's unhappiness could be.

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

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.
