Spurs showed impressive bottle, fight and skill as they fought back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 against Juventus and the man who encapsulated it best was Mousa Dembele. His personal highlights show his performances was a masterclass.

At 2-0 down inside 10 minutes against a team who had conceded just once in 16 matches in the lead up to last night's game Spurs could have panicked and ended up out of the tie but they were impressive in rallying about.

Would this Spurs 'what could have been XI' have done even better against Juventus?

Their performance was reminiscent of Manchester United's comeback in the same city during their Champions League semi-final second leg in the 1998/99 Treble winning season.

That night Roy Keane famously picked up a yellow card that ruled him out of the final but his performance from midfield drove the team on with his headed goal kicking off the comeback.

Mousa Dembele might not have scored for Spurs last night but his impact on the game was almost equal to Keane's and his personal highlights prove just how good he was:

After the match Steven Gerrard, a man who knows a thing or two about a good midfield performance in the Champions League, was very impressed with the 30 year old Belgian, telling BT Sport:

"I thought Dembele's performance was magnificent. I can't remember him putting in a performance like that on that stage. I thought he was terrific all night."

Fans were also impressed with the former Fulham player:

It really was a Champions League performance to remember, not just for Spurs as a side but for Dembele who provided one of the most vintage of all performances.
