Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino: My players are heroes

UEFA Champions League Report: Tottenham Hotspur v Borussia Dortmund 13

Dortmund were in the ascendancy in the first half as Spurs' five-man defence made the hosts look like the visitors at Wembley, but Mauricio Pochettino's side ultimately weathered the storm and headed into the break goalless. "What they are doing this season is awesome".

A second-half onslaught from Tottenham doomed Dortmund to a first-leg defeat in their round of 16 clash with Tottenham.

Youngster Kyle Walker-Peters is one option that could slot in at left-back, while senior versatile defender Jan Vertonghen would be the other and perhaps the safer bet.

"It is my job to prepare the strategy".

"Today it's 3-0 and maybe everyone says, "Oh, fantastic decision", or maybe if it's a different result I'm the worst coach in the world", he said.

This provided them with the base to score two more goals, inspite of what was a disastrous first-half showing.

Having been let off the hook after a potentially game-changing error by Foyth, Spurs did not pick up from there and continued their wobbly form for nearly the entirety of the first half.

"We were a little bit lucky because when Son scored it was a massive boost to our confidence".


Son was not alone in earning Pochettino's praise, however, as the Spurs boss was ecstatic at the team's performance following a tough Premier League fixture against Leicester City on Sunday.

"We should have got the ball forward rather than played from the back for their first goal".

The Daily Express framed Pulisic and his "underwhelming performance against Tottenham" in the context of replacing star Eden Hazard (who is expected to join Real Madrid this summer) and noted that "fans on Twitter were not impressed at all by his performance at Wembley on Wednesday night".

Dortmund were weakened by injuries to Marco Reus and Paco Alcacer but the presence of Sancho and Pulisic meant their attack wouldn't be weak.

But Lloris spared Foyth's blushes as he blocked Pulisic's shot at the near post.

'He is a player who provides the team with a lot of very good things. But Tottenham's manager played down the success of his tactics.

Sancho has had a stunning first full season in the first team at Borussia Dortmund.

However, the North London outfit doubled their lead with seven minutes remaining as Serge Aurier whipped a cross into the box where Jan Vertonghen was on hand to head home.
