‘Now go and beat In­ter’

Evening Express (City Final) - - Joe harper -

MAURI­CIO Po­chet­tino is back­ing his Tot­ten­ham side to take their Cham­pi­ons League qual­i­fi­ca­tion hopes to the last group game af­ter their es­cape act against PSV.

Spurs were on the brink of go­ing out as their fal­ter­ing Group B cam­paign looked like hit­ting a new low af­ter Luuk de Jong put the Dutch side ahead af­ter only 62 sec­onds at Wem­b­ley.

But cap­tain Harry Kane scored two goals in the fi­nal 12 min­utes to earn a 2-1 win and leave it all to play for go­ing into the fi­nal two group games.

In­ter Mi­lan, who are three points ahead of Spurs af­ter draw­ing with Barcelona, come to Wem­b­ley in three weeks and Po­chet­tino be­lieves they can pick-up three points.

Do­ing so would force a fi­nal-game de­cider at the Nou Camp in De­cem­ber.

“Two games to play, if we are ca­pa­ble of beat­ing In­ter Mi­lan we are go­ing to be with them on seven points with one game to play,” said Po­chet­tino.

“In one game any­thing can hap­pen. We will see if Barcelona have qual­i­fied for the next stage and we are go­ing to go to Barcelona try­ing to win the game.

“The be­lief is still there, you know me, I am so op­ti­mistic.”
