Tottenham hoping to keep Sancho out of the headlines

Jadon Sancho

Jan Vertonghen is set to start at left-back when Tottenham face Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Wednesday after Mauricio Pochettino confirmed Danny Rose was not fit to start.

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".

Spurs did not manage a single shot on target in the first period of their round-of-16 clash against the Bundesliga leaders, but they took the lead through Son Heung-min moments after the break.

Dortmund's rapier attacks were led by teenager Jadon Sancho, who left Manchester City to join Dortmund in 2017 without ever playing for the Premier League team. They deserve a lot of praise for the effort they are doing this season.

'The second thing is the pressure form all the clubs.I say that freely because I wanted to take him from City when he didn't get the games.

'Of course, we are happy now because it was a very good result but there is still a lot of work to do.

Having weaved his magic once again, Pochettino's Spurs side are now on the brink of an unprecedented first European quarter-final under the Argentine manager, after having looked like a good bet to drop out of the group stages at one point. First of all because we never felt the confidence to play. "When you have a team in front of you like Dortmund you need to respect them", Pochettino said.

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

"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.

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.

This provided them with the base to score two more goals, inspite of what was a disastrous first-half showing. We should get the ball forward rather than try and play.

Despite being pushed back for much of the first half, Tottenham had refused to surrender and their perseverance was rewarded in the 47th minute.
