Mauricio Pochettino confirms Spurs blow for Real Madrid

Harry Winks is the latest Tottenham player to receive a call-up to the England senior team

"It was important. It was a game we needed to win and take the three points and it was hard but in the end our performance was enough to take the three points", he said.

Tottenham dominated possession in the first half but lacked penetration and they could have been behind at the interval. We could not find the space as they sat very deep. It wasn't a great performance.

"The second half we changed it a little bit, we started to move the ball quicker".

He added that the result would act as a springboard to turn the national stadium into a fortress - as White Hart Lane was a year ago.

Following a tight first half in which a block from Davinson Sanchez and a superb save from goalkeeper Hugo Lloris prevented Tottenham from falling behind, Denmark midfielder Eriksen claimed the victor with a cool finish two minutes after the restart.

Neither side found the target during a laboured first half but Mauricio Pochettino's side came flying out the blocks after the break and they opened the scoring just minutes after the restart. Harry Kane broke the massed ranks of black and red as he latched on to a pass from Eriksen but he couldn't get a shot off cleanly to finish. He slotted home neatly from just inside the Bournemouth area. Probably the one time they did they scored from.

Spurs have not won at Wembley in the Premier League this season, but have fine away form to thank for being third in the Premier League standings.

Thankfully for the Argentine tactician he is able to call upon the in-form Kane once again to lead the line, while Harry Winks - fresh off making his England debut against Lithuania - continues alongside Eric Dier.
