"That was one of our best performances of the season".

Instead, Kane's goals - in the 78th and 89th minutes - gave Tottenham a glimmer of hope of a top-two finish in Group B with matches still to come at home to Inter Milan and away to already-qualified Barcelona.

PSV come into the game on the back of a 1-0 Eredivise victory over Vitesse on Saturday, which was their 11th consecutive win and put them five points clear of second-place Ajax.

Although on a more positive note, Dele Alli is likely to have a place on the bench after shaking off an injury and committing his long-term future to Tottenham. Real Madrid need a new manager. if Spurs crash out of the Champions League tonight, would that make him more eager to depart for football's Big Job?

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 is impossible to blame the club".

Spurs have picked up just one point from three games so far in a disappointing string of results, having been ahead in two of those three contests.

"If you are thinking about the pitch then it is not good". You can not complain, you can not change the situation.

"I think it'll improve a little bit - they're working so hard to improve it", he said.


Mousa Dembele is Tottenham's latest injury concern. "We are getting wins".

He joins Eric Dier (thigh), Danny Rose (groin), Jan Vertonghen (hamstring) and Victor Wanyama (knee) in the treatment room, while Hugo Lloris is suspended.

First of all, Liverpool confirmed they can handle the pressure of knock-out games in the Champions League when they hammered City 5-1 in last season's quarter-finals and that was not the first time Guardiola's side messed up a game at that stage of the competition.

A draw would have done little to improve their chances of reaching the last 16 of the competition and they turned one point into three late on when Kane's header flicked off Sainsbury and rolled into the bottom right corner.

Only Red Star Belgrade (75) have faced more shots in this season's Champions League than PSV (69), with the Dutch side facing at least 20 in each of their three matches.

A Wembley official inspected the ground on Monday afternoon and deemed in good enough condition to allow PSV to train on it, as per Champions League rules.

If Spurs are to have a chance of qualifying they will surely have to raise their game. It was the earliest goal Tottenham has conceded in a Champions League game.
