‘Better than Iniesta, Xavi and Scholes’ … Tottenham fans go wild for one particular performance against Juventus

Tottenham Hotspur performed a dramatic comeback against Juventus in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men looked down and out after conceding two goals in the opening 10 minutes in Turin.

Gonzalo Higuain stunned the travelling side by netting in the second minute before converting from the penalty spot seven minutes later.

Tottenham were outplayed in the early stages of the clash, but they managed to turn it around.

Harry Kane notched his 33rd goal of the season in all competitions shortly after the half-hour mark.

Juventus struggled to maintain their form in the second half as Christian Eriksen managed to equalise to give Tottenham a 2-2 draw.

The team now have two away goals to their name when they take on the Italian giants at Wembley in the return leg of the last-16 tie.

As expected, the fans were delighted with the comeback, and a special mention went to Mousa Dembele, who controlled the midfield.

The Belgian has been inconsistent at times during the season due to his injury woes, but on Tuesday night he was at his best.

I’m Marlon Dunn and I wanted to sell Mousa Dembele.

At the age of 30, Moussa Dembélé is twice the player Paul Pogba will ever be.#COYS #THFC
