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

Substitute Fernando Llorente headed Spurs into dreamland three minutes later, and they will take their three-goal lead back to Germany for the second leg on March 5, a result that already looks beyond doubt unless Spurs stage a dramatic collapse.

Spurs produced a superb second-half display at Wembley on Wednesday evening to build a commanding 3-0 lead ahead of their last-16 second leg with Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund.

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. 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 was an especially impressive success for Pochettino given he was without the injured Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Danny Rose and Ben Davies.

Champions League: PSG win to end Manchester United's unbeaten run under Solskjaer
To make matters worse for Solskjaer, the interim United manager, Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard hobbled off with injuries. United has only scored one goal at home in four Champions League games this season, a 1-0 victory over Young Boys.

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. 'He was fantastic again. My players are heroes, whatever happens, they deserve full credit and a lot of praise.

Pochettino devised a clever game-plan that eventually frustrated Dortmund and secured Tottenham's first ever Champions League knockout-round win at home.

"His smile, he translates good energy and his performance in every game is improving". The Wembley crowd was there to see him in good numbers and the youngster did not disappoint, dancing past men nearly as if they weren't there at times in the first half. After a tough first-half, the Belgian laid on Son's goal with a precision cross before banging home a volley of his own. But Tottenham's manager played down the success of his tactics.

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

"I wanted to sign him from Man City when he wasn't getting games", Wenger said. It was an incredible result and the players deserve massive praise but we need to think that it's going to be tough to play over there.
