But we were happy our first objective was to qualify and we have done that”.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino believes Tottenham can qualify for the Champions League knockout stage after coming back from the brink of elimination during their win against PSV Eindhoven.

Their first win of the competition this season means the Premier League side sit third in Group B, three points behind second-placed Inter Milan, who come to Wembley next. Spurs then travel to Spain to face Barcelona in the Nou Camp.

According to manager Mauricio Pochettino “If we can beat Inter then we will both have seven points,” said the Argentine. “Then in one game anything can happen. We will go to Barcelona for the final group match to try to win the game. The belief is still there. I am so optimistic.”
