Pochettino will now allow his stars a few days off following this famous victory but urged them to finish the job when they travel to Germany for the second leg in March.

"The first half was very hard, first of all because we never felt the confidence to play", said Pochettino post match.

Tottenham will be hoping Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho is not in the mood to be making any more headlines when the two clubs meet in the Champions League last 16. Of course 3-0 is a very good result but when you have in front a team like Dortmund you always need to respect them.

Mauricio Pochettino, the Spurs manager, refused to expand on what he called "rumours" but said he was not surprised by how well Sancho's career has developed.

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". He made a couple of good saves, especially in the first half.

"They get a lot of money before they have played games".

"We spoke about our defensive positions and changed things a little. I am so proud", said Pochettino. 'He was fantastic again. Now we are in England and you are world famous for hyping your players. He smiles and he creates energy in every single game. Christian Pulisic and Mario Gotze also start, but the visitors are without Marco Reus, who was ruled out of the first-leg with a thigh injury, and first choice striker with Paco Alcacer.

Son Heung-min, Jan Vertonghen and Fernando Llorente scored as Spurs dominated the second half at Wembley. But I prefer players who make mistakes trying to play.
