Tottenham kept their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League knockout stages alive after a dramatic comeback win over PSV Eindhoven at Wembley on Tuesday.

The Lilywhites came into the game looking for their first win of the competition, but suffered a nightmare start, with Luuk de Jong heading the visitors into the lead from a corner after just 61 seconds.

What followed was a period of frustration for the hosts, who pushed for an equaliser but were thwarted time and again by PSV ‘keeper Jeroen Zoet.

At the other end, Paulo Gazzaniga, in for the suspended Hugo Lloris, also played his part in making a number of vital stops as the Dutch looked to increase their lead.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side looked to be heading out of the competition when , on 78 minutes, Harry Kane finally got his side back into the game, via a low effort.

With the Wembley crowd behind them, Spurs pushed for that all-important winner and, at the death, it came courtesy of Kane again, this time with a close-range header via an unfortunate double-deflection for PSV.

The game would end in a 2-1 win for Tottenham, a result which keeps them in the mix for a place in the Last 16.
