Commentary

That's all from us, we hope you enjoyed the game. Thank you for joining our coverage, until next time, goodbye!
Buoyed by their late comeback, PSV visit Groningen in league action as they seek to win 10 Eredivisie games in a row and maintain their grip at the top of the table. Tottenham, meanwhile, host Premier League champions Manchester City in a tough fixture.
And breathe! A pulsating encounter finally comes to an end in Eindhoven! The sides entered the break on level terms as Lozano punished Alderweireld's dawdling before Lucas fired in a deflected equaliser. Kane and Pereiro hit the woodwork before the break, but the former got his goal in the second half as he nodded in Eriksen's left-wing cross. However, Lloris complicated matters by getting sent off for a studs-up challenge on Lozano, and De Jong capitalised by diverting Rosario's mis-hit shot into the net to level the scores once more! It's a result that does not help either team much in their chances of getting out of the group though. It finishes 2-2!
90' + 6' FULL-TIME: PSV 2-2 TOTTENHAM
P. Rosario
Yellow Card
PSV
90' + 5' Rosario picks up a yellow for a late foul in a central position some distance from goal. Spurs look for one last chance, but the set-piece comes to nothing.
90' + 4' MISS! Kane takes the ball down on the left side of the box and has space to turn and lash one towards the top corner, but he gets far too much on it and sends it high and wide! That must be the last chance of the game!
90' + 3' Angelino smashes a first-time shot well over the bar form a promising position on the left. He won't get many more opportunities.
90' + 2' CHANCE! Kane looks to have a golden chance to win the game from close range as a cross appears to fall kindly for him, but Schwaab makes a superb last-ditch clearance!
D. Dumfries
Yellow Card
PSV
90' + 1' Dumfries concedes a free-kick for a challenge on Dier and picks up a yellow card. Spurs will look to lump this one forward.
89' There will be FIVE minutes of added time. Will there be late drama in Eindhoven tonight?
P. Rosario
Assist
PSV
87' Rosario was looking for goal himself, but his scruffy contact deceived everyone, and De Jong reacted quickest to snatch an equaliser!
L. de Jong
Goal
PSV
87' GOAL!!! PSV ARE LEVEL AGAIN! What an end to the game! De Jong makes it 2-2 as Rosario's poor, scuffed effort turns into a great pass, allowing the striker to flick the ball into the back of the net from close range past a helpless Vorm!
86' It's a short one to Lamela, and the winger tries to dance his way into the box but ends up conceding a free-kick. He's furious at the decision, but the referee waves away his protestations.
85' Winks is fouled on the left and Trippier lines up to take it.
C. Gakpo
G. Pereiro
PSV
83' Gakpo replaces Pereiro as Van Bommel tries to press PSV's man advantage in the last few minutes and find an equaliser.
82' SAVE! Vorm's first contribution to the side is to turn De Jong's fierce, curling free-kick round the post! What an introduction! That shot was destined for the bottom corner.
M. Vorm
Son Heung-Min
Tottenham Hotspur
81' Vorm comes on to take Lloris' place in between the sticks, and Son is the man to be hooked in place of the reserve goalkeeper.
H. Lloris
Red Card
Tottenham Hotspur
79' RED CARD! Lloris is off! Lozano is sent through on goal and Lloris comes charging out of his area to intercept. Lozano is being pressured from either side, and pokes the ball past Lloris, but is never getting there. However, the goalkeeper lunged in with his studs up and caught the winger on the ankle! It's a poor challenge by the Frenchman and a needless red card! Spurs are down to 10 men for the closing stages!
77' MISS! Spurs win a free-kick in a promising position to the left of goal, but it's Kane who stands over it instead of Trippier or Eriksen. The decision is most certainly not justified, as he slices his shot high and wide! Awful attempt by the striker.
76' BLOCK! Lamela has a speculative effort from distance that cannons back off a red and white shirt. Brave defending there.
75' If PSV fail to win tonight, they will extend their winless run in the Champions League to 11 games, having drawn four and lost six of the last 10.
75' CHANCE! Son gets away down the left and feeds the ball into Kane at the near post but his touch is poor and the defender can clear the danger.
H. Winks
M. Dembélé
Tottenham Hotspur
74' Dembele, having just returned from injury, is replaced by Winks in midfield.
73' CROSSBAR! Son produces a lovely touch to fool Dumfries on the flank and race past him, before playing the ball inside to Kane, who feeds Lamela on the right. Lamela then takes on Angelino, throwing in a few stepovers before lashing an effort off the crossbar!
72' It's all breaking down for PSV in the final third. They build well from midfield, but that final pass is evading them.
70' PSV get forward and push Spurs back, but the tiredness is taking its toll as Lozano and then Angelino play loose passes and give the ball away. They had numbers forward there, but the opportunity was wasted.
68' Both sets of players take a bit of a breather as the pace of the game slows for the first time.
66' SAVE! WHAT A SAVE! Trippier curls a free-kick to the back post where Kane heads down towards the bottom corner, but Zoet makes a stunning reflex save with his foot, diverting the ball away from virtually on the line! He's kept his side in the game.
E. Lamela
Lucas Moura
Tottenham Hotspur
64' Lucas comes off for Lamela as Pochettino looks to freshen up his side.
63' PSV look tired. Their press isn't as sharp or energetic as before, and Spurs are being afforded more time on the ball. Van Bommel will no doubt try to coax a little more from his side.
61' SAVE! Son thumps an effort at goal from distance after cutting onto his right, but Zoet is well-positioned and gets his body behind the shot to catch.
Angeliño
Yellow Card
PSV
59' Angelino goes into the book for hauling Lucas down. He was beaten there and made a desperate challenge.
58' CHANCE! Dembele has an effort from outside the area that is blocked away, but only as far as Son, who lashes a wild effort off-target from the left.
56' Lozano tries to stretch Tottenham and get his side back on level terms, but he's gone too early and is caught offside.
C. Eriksen
Assist
Tottenham Hotspur
54' The build-up play was excellent, and Eriksen's cross was pinpoint and delivered with just the right amount of pace. Great assist from the Dane.
H. Kane
Goal
Tottenham Hotspur
54' GOAL!! SPURS LEAD! It's now 2-1! Kane heads his side in front after neat interplay down the left between Son and Eriksen, and the latter curls in a gorgeous cross off his left foot to Kane at the back post who heads home! We've had no shortage of chances tonight!
53' SAVE! Eriksen gets into space between two defenders just inside the area and lashes a first-time strike at goal with his left foot, but it's straight at Zoet who parries away! Dembele's follow-up shot is wide and goes out for a goal-kick.
52' Another set-piece opportunity for Spurs, but it's further out this time and Trippier's delivery into the box is cleared comfortably.
50' Zoet just about clears in time under significant pressure from Lucas, and Alderweireld hacks the bouncing ball away as he is put under pressure running towards his own goal.
49' BLOCK! It's Trippier who takes, but he smashes his effort straight into the wall. Maybe Eriksen would have been a safer bet.
48' Dumfries lunges in rashly on Son and then Kane, giving away a free-kick in a dangerous position. Eriksen and Trippier will fancy their chances from this sort of range.
46' And we're back underway for the start of the second half!
Spurs will feel aggrieved not to be ahead at the break. Had Sanchez's goal stood and Alderweireld retained his concentration, they could have been 2-0 up. However, PSV have looked threatening on the break and have pressed Tottenham aggressively at times. They will need to stem the tide of attacks being thrown at them, however, if they are to pick up their first Champions League points so far this season. Pochettino will be largely happy with the performance his side put on in the first half - although their finishing will need to improve in the second period.
And there goes the half-time whistle! A really open half of football so far in Eindhoven with plenty of chances for both sides. Kane hit the angle of post and bar with a header from a corner before Lozano picked Alderweireld's pocket to open the scoring, his deflected shot looping over Lloris and in. Spurs were denied an equaliser despite having the ball in the net as Sanchez tapped in following Alderweireld's saved header, with the linesman flagging Kane up for offside despite the striker not interfering with play. The visitors were level just a few minutes later, however, as Trippier's low cross found Lucas on the penalty spot, and the Brazilian's deflected shot flew past Zoet and in! Pereiro just had enough time to ping an effort against the crossbar before half-time. It's 1-1 at the break!
45' + 1' HALF-TIME: PSV 1-1 TOTTENHAM
45' CROSSBAR! Pereiro wriggles past his markers on the right and lets fly from distance, only to see the ball clip the top of the crossbar! He's crafted a great chance out of nothing there and was inches away from scoring a spectacular goal!
44' MISS! Lucas hits a wild shot from close in on the right that flies well off-target. He rushed that chance.
43' Spurs seem to have relaxed just a little since their goal and PSV are growing back into the game.
41' Hendrix tries to play Malen in behind the Spurs defence, but the linesman flags the winger up for offside.
K. Trippier
Assist
Tottenham Hotspur
39' Trippier showed good awareness to see Lucas on the penalty spot and feed the ball into him.
Lucas Moura
Goal
Tottenham Hotspur
39' GOAL! LUCAS EQUALISES! It's 1-1 and it's another deflected goal! Eriksen feeds Trippier on the right with a throughball and the Englishman cuts the ball back to Lucas in the box, whose shot takes a deflection that sends Zoet the wrong way and the ball ends up in the net! Game on!
37' SAVE! Son beats Dumfries one-on-one down the left, but Zoet is out well to make a fantastic sliding block! Spurs are piling on the pressure.
35' NO GOAL! Trippier dinks a cross into the box from a corner and Alderweireld's initial header is saved well by a diving Zoet, only for Sanchez to tap home the rebound! But Spurs' celebrations are short-lived as the linesman flags Kane up for offside! The striker was standing in an offside position, but he wasn't interfering with play. The visitors will feel very hard done by there.
33' Spurs push forward in search of an equaliser and win a corner down their right-hand side.
31' Tottenham can hardly believe that they're losing. They've had more of the ball and more chances so far, but Alderweireld's lapse in concentration has seen them fall behind.
H. Lozano
Goal
PSV
29' GOAL!!! PSV TAKE THE LEAD! Lozano makes it 1-0, but it's a horrendous error from Alderweireld! The centre-back has his pocket picked as he received a back-pass from Sanchez, and despite sprinting to get back, Lozano's shot deflects off of him as he slides in and loops over Lloris and into the back of the net!
27' SAVE! Son cuts in from the left and tries to place a firm shot across goal into the far corner, but Zoet gets down well to make the save and cling on.
25' MISS! De Jong gets his first sight of goal but heads wastefully over the bar from the free-kick.
24' Dembele commits yet another foul. He has to be careful if he doesn't want to pick up a second yellow and reduce his side to 10 men.
23' BLOCK! Eriksen feeds Davies on the left as he marauds forward, but the left-back's shot from the edge of the box is quickly charged down.
21' MISS! Pereiro has another try from the free-kick and his curling effort ruffles the side-netting on its way past the post! The hosts weren't too far away there.
M. Dembélé
Yellow Card
Tottenham Hotspur
20' Dembele concedes another silly foul in a dangerous position. The Belgian is tracking back well, but he is diving in far too rashly. He picks up a yellow card, too.
18' POST! From the resulting corner, Trippier's dinked cross is glanced towards the top-left corner by Kane, but it comes out off the angle of post and bar! Tottenham inches away from the lead! Dier has a swing or two in the aftermath, but his first shot is blocked and the second goes out for a goal-kick.
17' BLOCK! A corner from the left is only cleared as far as the penalty spot, and Kane has a shot on the spin that deflects off De Jong and goes over the bar!
15' SAVE! Kane gets the ball out of his feet just inside the box and digs an effort at goal. Zoet looks like he should take it comfortably, but spills it and Angelino has to hack clear!
14' Dembele skips away from two before feeding Lucas, who tries to slip the ball through for Kane, but it's a touch too heavy and runs away from him.
12' MISS! Awful attempt by Angelino from the free-kick, and he smacks it high and wide of the target. Perhaps a cross would have been a better option.
11' Lozano breaks away well down the left and Dembele tracks him back diligently, but then concedes a silly foul in the corner. Lozano had nowhere to go, and the Belgian diving in played right into his hands.
9' Lucas produces an excellent piece of skill to beat his man down the line. He looked to be crowded out on the touchline, but he got away well.
7' MISS! Pereiro's left-footed effort is lashed past the near post from the resulting free-kick. He just couldn't quite steer it into the corner.
6' Lozano wins a foul on the right as a beats Davies with ease, forcing the left-back to haul him down. The Mexican winger looks to have the beating of his man early on.
4' Spurs work the ball into space down the right and it's fizzed towards the feet of Son in the box by Trippier, but Dumfries slides in well to block the ball out for a corner. Trippier's subsequent delivery is nodded just clear.
3' MISS! Lucas has a very speculative effort from outside the box that is blazed miles over the bar. Poor decision by the Brazilian.
2' Spurs are playing out from the back straight away, and get out under pressure from PSV's front three. This could be a recurring theme as the game goes on.
1' And we're underway in Eindhoven!
In fact, only Viktoria Plzen have conceded more goals (7) than PSV and Spurs (6) in the Champions League so far.
Despite their strong league form, both sides come into this game in desperate need of a win after losing both of their Champions League games so far against Barcelona and Inter.
PSV are on a magnificent run of form in the Eredevisie, having won all nine of their league games so far by an aggregate score of 36-3. The Dutch side have not conceded in domestic action since the start of September in a 6-1 victory over Willem II.
PSV head coach Mark van Bommel makes just one change from the side that won 6-0 against Emmen in their last match, with the injured Steven Bergwijn dropping out for Malen on the left wing. Meanwhile, Mauricio Pochettino welcomes Dembele, Eriksen and Son back into the Tottenham starting line-up, with Winks, Sissoko and Lamela all dropping to the bench. Spurs are still without Danny Rose, Jan Vertonghen and Dele Alli through injury, however.
