Very, Very Good, Actually, Excellent - Mauricio Pochettino Impressed With Spurs Youngster

Tottenham's pressure finally told in the final 12 minutes, however, as Harry Kane led from the front by netting a couple of goals to lift his side to within three points of Inter Milan, who earned a 1-1 draw against Barcelona elsewhere tonight.

The Australian PSV defender was brought on in the 81st minute in his first taste of top flight European football, trying desperately to sure up the defence and hang on for a point away from home.

Only in Pochettino's first season in charge - the 2014-15 campaign - have Spurs posed less of a goal threat. We could have managed the game in another way.

Sainsbury's early time with the club has also had its highlights with the Socceroo scoring in a Cup win against Excelsior in September.

Tottenham was in danger of heading out of the competition after just four games when they went behind after 61 seconds at Wembley Stadium. There was more to come from the England striker.

For the last few seasons Liverpool have leapfrogged their Manchester rivals in terms of challenging for silverware and while Jose Mourinho has been struggling to recapture the glory days of Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford, Jurgen Klopp has helped produce one of the finest teams in Europe, who made it to the Champions League final last season. We could be playing better I think, but when you're winning while not playing well, that's a good sign.

"We had to dig deep and find another level when it mattered".

Kane was to the fore once again in the dying embers of the contest, his headed attempted clipping Sainsbury on its way into the net to leave PSV on the brink of elimination. "If we are capable of beating them, the percentage to be in the next stage will be high".

Despite their victory, Tottenham face a tough challenge to qualify from Group B, given they lie three points behind second-placed Inter Milan - their next opponents - and are still to face Barcelona at the Nou Camp.

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.

"The team is growing up. It will be good to be in that position, still optimistic and believing that we can still go to the next section".
