Tottenham left it late to pick up the three points against PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League. The home side needed a win to keep their faint hopes alive and got two goals from Harry Kane in the dying minutes of the game.
PSV had taken the lead in the second minute from Luuk de Jong, but Kane scored the winner in the 89th minute.
Our next Champions League tie is against Inter Milan, and should we win that, both teams would be tied on seven points with one group game left.
There were a few heroes in the Tottenham side on Tuesday night, and here are the player ratings from the game.
Paulo Gazzaniga – 7.5/10
The Argentine couldn’t do much to keep De Jong’s header out but made a couple of important saves in the second half to keep us in the game.
Serge Aurier – 6/10
Aurier tried to help out in the attack and did a decent enough job at the back without doing anything special.
Davinson Sanchez – 7/10
The defender had a decent outing at the back and even played as a makeshift striker before Fernando Llorente was brought on.
Toby Alderweireld – 6.5/10
Alderweireld was partly responsible for the goal we conceded but he did a decent job of keeping things tight after that effort.
Ben Davies – 7/10
The Welshman didn’t have a great time when it came to his crosses, but he did provide the ball for our winner in the second half.
Harry Winks – 7/10
Another typical Winks performance. The Englishman kept things ticking well for Tottenham as we looked to get a winner after an early goal.
Christian Eriksen – 6.5/10
Eriksen had a great chance to score the leveller but saw his effort saved. The Dane just couldn’t get into the groove on Tuesday for Spurs.
Lucas Moura – 8/10
The Brazilian was possibly our best attacker on the night as he ran at the PSV defence. The only thing missing for him was a goal.
Dele Alli – 6/10
Alli saw a backheel get cleared off the line but again, just could not get into the attacking groove for Tottenham.
Son Heung-min – 6/10
The first half wasn’t great for the South Korean but he became much better in the second.
Harry Kane – 8/10
The Englishman came up trumps when we needed him the most. His second was a little lucky but we deserved some fortune in the Champions League this season.
Erik Lamela – 6.5/10
The Argentine replaced Moura and added more threat to our attack.
Kieran Trippier – 5/10
The Englishman was brought on to provide more crosses into the box but that didn’t happen as much as expected.
Fernando Llorente – 6/10
The Spaniard did help Kane score the equaliser and also had a header saved by the PSV keeper.
