Injury-hit Spurs beat Dortmund, holders edge Ajax

Jadon Sancho

"The first half we played really well".

Fernando Llorente managed to cap off a fine win three minutes later by nodding home a cross from Christian Eriksen as Spurs will take a healthy lead into the second leg.

Tottenham's 3-0 Champions League result over Borussia Dortmund made it 13 wins out of 13 when Son Heung-min scores, much to the delight of Mauricio Pochettino.

"It's not finished, we have to focus on the second game too". The timing of the first goal was very important, the cross was unreal, I didn't have to do anything, just touch the ball.

With Dele Alli and Harry Kane in contention to return for second leg, there must be serious optimism about their prospects in this tournament.

After watching his team tear Borussia Dortmund apart, Pochettino joked he would simply head to the dressing room for a shower next time Son helps himself to a goal.

The person who had rented the vehicle on that same date was Da Silva, the complaint said. "I'm paranoid, mommy. The victim's body was found on February 5 inside a suitcase discarded near a CT road by highway workers.

Asked about Spurs winning again without two of their key players, Pochettino said: "It's good because the expectation when people watch Tottenham is not only to win, it's to see a performance like the dream team of Barcelona with [Johan] Cruyff or Milan of Arrigo Sacchi".

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

He added: "I must say, they get a lot of money before they play games". For these boys it'a test because they are rich before they play'.

Dortmund started brightly at Wembley but Tottenham seized control of the match with second-half goals from Heung-Min Son, Jan Vertonghen and Fernando Llorente.

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. I am very happy for him, he deserved it.

Yet Skomina called for a VAR check and after a number of replays, ruled that Tadic had been standing in an offside position when the goal was scored. It was an awesome result and the players deserve massive praise but we need to think that it's going to be tough to play over there.
