Mauricio Pochettino's half-time video session prepared Tottenham for second-half barrage

Mauricio Pochettino's half-time video session prepared Tottenham for second-half barrage

Fernando Llorente made it 3-0 just three minutes later from a corner, leaving Borussia Dortmund with a mountain to climb in the second leg.

Tottenham Hotspur registered a resounding 3-0 victory over Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League and here are the five talking points from the match.

"We were able to keep them quiet in the second half and they weren't able to be clinical".

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

Pulisic has rarely played in league play this season, but he got the start in the wings along with Jadon Sancho over Raphael Guerrero and Jacob Bruun Larsen for the Bundesliga leaders, who were missing forwards Marco Reus and Paco Alcacer and two other starters through injury or illness.

Pochettino's side had been under the cosh as Dortmund dominated the first half at Wembley, but Hugo Lloris kept them level with a series of fine saves.

Mauricio Pochettino saluted his talismanic goalscorer Son Heung-min after the Tottenham forward helped to move the team to within touching distance of the Champions League quarter-finals.

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




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

Tottenham's next game is in a weekend's time following their elimination from the FA Cup, when they play Burnley away from home on February 23 in the Premier League.

"His smile, he translates good energy and his performance in every game is improving".

Son started a brilliant second-half display in the last-16 first leg at Wembley by opening the scoring from Jan Vertonghen's excellent cross, before Vertonghen and substitute Fernando Llorente put Mauricio Pochettino's men on course for the last eight in the final seven minutes.

"That is very good, we feel very proud when people expect that from our performance, but sometimes people underestimate us".

"I haven't got any particular worries", he said.

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