Mauricio Pochettino says Tottenham are underestimated after beating Borussia Dortmund

Mauricio Pochettino says Tottenham are underestimated after beating Borussia Dortmund

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

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.

"They deserve full credit, a lot of praise because the effort they are doing this season is unbelievable".

'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.

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. "We are happy now, but there is still a lot of work to do", said Pochettino.

The sides will meet again in Germany on March 5 and Pochettino warned Spurs not to take their place in the quarter-finals for granted after a host of dramatic comebacks in the Champions League in recent seasons. First of all because we never felt the confidence to play. When you are in front of a team like Borussia Dortmund, you have to show respect. "If it was a different result, people might say I'm the worst coach in the world", he said.

Wenger, who long had a reputation as a manager willing to turn to young players, also believes that the amount of money on offer to players like Sancho before they've earned it on the pitch could be hampering their drive to improve.

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

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

When Vertonghen swung over a cross from the left, Dortmund's defence were out of position for the first time all night and Son timed his run perfectly behind Zagadou to caress a fine volley past Roman Burki.

Tottenham were rampant and Llorente completed a memorable night when he glanced a close-range header past Burki from Christian Eriksen's corner three minutes later.
