  • Jadon Sancho

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

Reflecting on the second-half improvement from Spurs, Pochettino said: "The first half was very hard". "We took some rash decisions".

His link-up with Pulisic, Gotze et al was a joy to behold and although he faded away like his team in second-half as Spurs took control, he certainly gave people the bang for their buck. Pochettino also got his players to get closer to Jadon Sancho, and the England worldwide was subdued in the second period.

Rose suffered a shin wound at the end of Sunday's 3-1 victory over Leicester, being withdrawn in the 88th minute, and the club are assessing whether he will even make the squad.

Spurs head into the game on the back of three straight wins, while they're unbeaten in their last four matches in the competition.

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.

Pochettino devised a clever game-plan that eventually frustrated Dortmund and secured Tottenham's first ever Champions League knockout-round win at home. They deserve a lot of praise for the effort they are doing this season.

'Next time Son scores I will go to the dressing room, have a shower and wait for the game to finish, ' Pochettino joked afterwards. "It's good, it's nice".

"Harry or Dele are very important for us but we have players who can come in and do well".

Having had their own issues with injury and player unavailability in recent times, Tottenham Hotspur had been all but dismissed by the critics as no-hopers, both in terms of the title race as well as the Champions League. It was an fantastic result and the players deserve massive praise but we need to think that it's going to be tough to play over there.

Spurs will now travel to Dortmund for the return leg in a strong position, but Pochettino added: "For me, it's only the first leg and first half of the tie".

"I haven't got any particular worries", he said. "Of course he still needs to improve and learn". I want to congratulate my players.
