Ramos seeks big performances from every Spurs player

Tottenham boss Juande Ramos admits every player needs to produce a five-star performance if they're to beat UEFA Cup opponents PSV Eindhoven tonight.

Spurs travel to Holland needing to overhaul a 1-0 deficit and Ramos said: "I have been involved in really difficult and complicated games. I remember when Seville were close to being knocked out against Shakhtar Donetsk.

"But our keeper Andres Palop scored a goal right at the death that took the game into extra-time and Seville went through.

"Of course I would like to walk out in the final for the third time but you must remember it is not normal to win it twice in a row.

"PSV have already demonstrated at our ground what a fantastic team they are. The result makes things much more difficult but we have our weapons and will fight to the maximum to achieve victory.

"It's not just about Keane and Berbatov. Everyone in the team has to be at their best.

"We need to create chances to score and above all to score early so nerves do not creep in. We need to play with maximum intensity.

"It will be a very tight game and one goal will tip the balance.

"All games in the European competitions are extremely tough and very tight affairs. One tiny detail can swing the balance in your favour or against you. We have to keep fighting."
