Mauricio Pochettino: Spurs can progress in Champions League after PSV win

Tottenham must alter Pochettino's pressing style: Lloris

Mauricio Pochettino remains optimistic of reaching the Champions League knockout stages after Tottenham scraped to a crucial 2-1 win over PSV Eindhoven.

Harry Kane scored twice as Spurs fought back from behind to win 2-1 with minutes to spare.

Instead, Kane's goals in the 78th and 89th minutes gave the English team 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 Barcelona.

That's because the history books show that Spurs love hosting the San Siro side.

The win, Spurs' first of the group stage, leaves them in third place, three points behind Inter Milan, who visit Wembley in three weeks. We could have managed the game in another way.

Socceroos star Trent Sainsbury cursed his misfortune after a dream Champions League debut for PSV turned into a nightmare against Tottenham.

"I think we were so close to winning the game and deserved more in Milan (a 2-1 defeat), we played better than them". We did that out there [in the reverse fixture] but we didn't finish them off when we could have, and we ended up paying the price [with a draw]. 'The early goal increased the belief for the opponents and we created chances and dominated the game and could not score.

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

"That was our fourth game in nine days and I am so pleased", the manager added. It was in the end the team fighting and making a fantastic effort.

Treu appeared via video in court Tuesday afternoon for an initial appearances on 11 counts, including four counts of homicide. Haylee's mother, Sara Jo Schneider, 32, was with the Girl Scout troop and was also hit and killed, officials said.

PSV defended doggedly for much of the match on a Wembley pitch damaged by recent American football matches.

The 89th minute victor ended PSV's chances of progression from the group stage yet that didn't stop the Australian from owning the mistake and agreeing to a post-match interview with Optus Sport just minutes after the final whistle.

'The pitch is s***,' said Van Bommel.

"You know what I mean, it's bad".

'You could say we were probably a bit unlucky against Manchester City because of the pitch, so it is what it is.

"We've had good away form this year".

"I understand [the boos]", he said.

"After one minute we get a goal and we try to defend it until the end". "We have been grinding results out here and there all season".

The Spurs boss will need to choose between Michel Vorm and Paulo Gazzaniga as to who will replace Lloris between the sticks, with the former the man most likely to be chosen.
