Mauricio Pochettino salutes Son and Spurs ‘heroes’ after Dortmund win

Thomas Delaney says Jadon Sancho is a"rough diamond

First, it was Sancho, who turned Sanchez inside out with a deft body feint in the first half.

Despite having the better of things in the first-half, Borussia Dortmund couldn't live with the onslaught Tottenham provided in the second period, as the German side were victims of a high-pressing approach. "And then the double strike towards the end killed us off". For these boys it'a test because they are rich before they play'. They've won the possibility to have a few days off.

England winger Sancho hit top gear on several occasions in a mesmerising first-half display, leaving two Tottenham midfielders for dead and linking with Pulisic, whose shot was blocked at the last minute.

Tottenham were rampant and Llorente completed a memorable night when he glanced a close-range header past Burki from Christian Eriksen's corner three minutes later.

"We need to go out there knowing it's going to be so tough and we need to perform like we performed today, in our best way and try to think that we need to win the next game if we want to be in the next stage of the Champions League". "What they are doing this season is unbelievable".

Son, who has scored nine goals in 11 games against Dortmund, added: "The timing of the first goal was very important, the cross was unreal, I didn't have to do anything, just touch the ball". "It's good, it's nice".

"Son was fantastic again, he's doing fantastic".

In the absence of Harry Kane and Dele Alli, the focus has fallen on Son and he has not shirked the responsibility, with his 47th-minute strike against Dortmund setting them on their way to an impressive victory on Wednesday. Jan Vertonghen was huge at left wing back, Christian Eriksen really grew into the game and the key man was Son Heung-min. But Tottenham's manager played down the success of his tactics.

"3-0 is a very good result but it is only the first leg. You just need to take the right decision the next time because football is about winning". I am very happy for him, he deserved it. "Of course he still needs to improve and learn".

"Jan Vertonghen is technically unbelievable and can play in any position".
