Mauricio Pochettino is unconcerned by fans voicing their displeasure at his withdrawal of Lucas Moura in Tuesday's 2-1 Champions League win over PSV, adamant it is the first time they have disagreed with him in nearly five years.
"It's not good but we're not complaining". If they don't win tonight, the Champions League is surely over.
Spurs' pressure eventually told in the 78th minute as Kane got the equaliser and he then had a major role in the victor as Trent Sainsbury deflected the England striker's header past the despairing Zoet, teeing up Mauricio Pochettino's men nicely for two huge clashed with Inter and Barcelona. Whilst Eric Dier, Mousa Dembele & Danny Rose are injury doubts and join long-term absentees Vincent Janssen, Jan Vertonghen and Victor Wanyama on the sidelines.
Sainsbury's big break this morning came when he was brought on for the last 10 minutes just moments after Harry Kane had levelled the scores for Spurs after Luuk de Jong had given PSV an early lead in the second minute. His was a complete central midfield performance.
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. He was comfortably the most creative player on the pitch, supplying seven chances (three more than anyone else) to his teammates, including a cross from deep to Fernando Llorente that was begging to be headed home.
"Now is to be focused on Saturday but talking about Champions League is about being focused on Inter Milan".

The Liverpool boss and his side travel to Belgrade, Serbia to take on Red Star in the competition's group stage. The Reds let their lead slip at Arsenal on Saturday in the Premier League as they drew 1-1 in north London.
However, defeat for the visitors ended their chances of progressing from the group.
It's a tall order, but Pochettino is taking it one step at a time.
It wasn't just on the ball that Winks caught the eye, though.
PSV are decent and have some players that can do damage.
Spurs had plenty of chances to equalise in the first half and much of their play came through Lucas Moura, who looked Spurs' most unsafe player.
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. Dier, meanwhile, has struggled to kick on from an exceptional 2015-16 campaign when he was first thrust into Spurs' engine room.
