But captain Harry Kane scored two goals in the final 12 minutes to earn a 2-1 win and leave it all to play for going into the final two group games.

"In one game anything can happen". I think we fully deserved the victory. 'If we beat Inter we are both on seven points with one to play and we will go to Barcelona trying to win the game. 'The early goal increased the belief for the opponents and we created chances and dominated the game and could not score.

"I hope I continue to have opportunities, it's important for me because it gives me the confidence to keep working, it's not easy when you do not play because mentally you have to be very strong to continue training hard".

It was the quickest goal Tottenham had conceded in the Champions League, but the blow sparked them into mounting a sustained period of pressure on the PSV goal.

Striker Kane finally levelled the contest when he fired home after being teed up by substitute Fernando Llorente. If we are able to beat them the chance to reach the next stage if higher'.

"So pleased with the effort for what was our fourth game in nine days", added Pochettino.

"Now we play Inter, another battle".

"First of all we need to play against Inter".

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.

PSV boss Mark van Bommel hailed his team in defeat and criticised the Wembley pitch but refused to use it as an excuse.

He and Behich were snapped up by new PSV boss Mark van Bommel after the former Dutch worldwide saw them both in action up close as assistant to his Socceroos World Cup head coach father-in-law Bert van Marwijk. "We have been grinding results out here and there all season". We need to learn.

Central midfield was pinpointed by many as a problem position for Spurs heading into the season and has been at times during the campaign too with the team struggling to exert the same element of control in the middle that they have generally done during the Pochettino era.

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.
