Harry Kane: Tottenham will challenge for Premier League title in new stadium

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

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.

Zoet produced a double stop to keep out Christian Eriksen's first-time shot from six yards out and Dele's follow-up, which the Englishman - one of six players to be brought back into the starting lineup - should have been burying.

It certainly promises to be one to watch as Tottenham look to save their Champions League campaign against PSV. However, in the Champions League, Spurs have struggled, allowing at least two goals in each of their first three games.

"A bit bittersweet. My first game in the Champions League, a double deflection and it goes in off me for the victor", Sainsbury told Optus Sport's Mark Schwarzer.

Spurs appeared to be doomed as they trailed for much of the Group B match, but they turned things around late on to capitalise on the Italian side dropping points at home to Barcelona.

Victory for Tottenham knocks 24-time Dutch champions PSV out of the Champions League, and sets up a huge shootout with Inter at Wembley in three weeks' time. I think he is still young for a 'keeper but he has the potential to get to the top. But we have speed, width and strength: "we have to try to use that". It was the earliest goal Tottenham has conceded in a Champions League game.

The victims were picking up trash in the ditches of County Highway P when they were struck Saturday about 11:30 a.m. A fourth girl scout, who has not been identified, was hospitalized and is now in stable condition, police said.

Harry Kane has dismissed Mark van Bommel's criticism of the Wembley pitch following Tottenham's dramatic, come-from-behind victory over PSV on Tuesday evening.

Speaking at his press conference, van Bommel said ahead of the tie, "We did not do well at home, we have to be honest about that".

"I think the belief is still there and you know me, I'm so optimistic".

Their European woes are in contrast to their domestic form, where they have made their best start to a Premier League season - sitting in fourth place after Saturday's 3-2 win at Wolves. We just have to get on with it, and we did that today and a big win for us'. The players were complaining in training but I told them to shut up.

"I'm so pleased with everything - not only the effort of the performance, but how we played in the opposite half, trying to be patient and not taking rash decisions and not making a mistake". "We have been grinding results out here and there all season".

"We had Barcelona, Inter and Spurs so it was a very hard group".
