Champions League RESULTS: Liverpool stunned as Harry Kane rescues Tottenham

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.

Fans were delighted with the result, especially with the England international's last-minute victor, however, one of his compatriots appeared to take all the plaudits on social media after the game. "Only I can tell the fans: "Thank you" because coming again to Wembley, supporting the team and making the effort, we cannot ask for more".

Well, as Liverpool were suffering a Champions League nightmare in Serbia - as they headed into half-time of their European clash 2-0 behind to minnows Red Star Belgrade - United fans instantly enjoyed celebrating the fact that the Merseysiders were struggling in a must-win game. It is not the first time this has happened in the Champions League and in the League that the opponent created chances in the last minutes of the game.

Spurs are now preparing to host PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League on Tuesday.

The visiting defense was finally breached when Kane met a lay-off from substitute Fernando Llorente with a left-footed shot into the corner.

The Spurs boss praised the spirit of his players after four games in nine days.

"I'll give it the old Balotelli line, 'why me?'" he added.

Wembley had hosted an National Football League game eight days before Tuesday's clash, and though ground staff have worked tirelessly to get the pitch in working order, Van Bommel did not hold back in his description of the surface.
