Spurs 3-0 Borussia Dortmund - Mauricio's verdict

Jadon Sancho

Arsene Wenger claims Dortmund star Jadon Sancho "disappeared" in his side's 3-0 defeat to Tottenham because he could not handle the physicality of Mauricio Pochettino's side.

The Belgian defender, who operated as a full-back on the night, believes that Spurs enjoyed a special occasion at Wembley and the second half made all the difference.

The win was Spurs' fourth in a row in all competitions, all of which have been achieved without injured duo Harry Kane and Dele Alli.

Although manager Pochettino was delighted with the performance of his players, he also warned that they are not yet assured a place in the quarter-finals.

Having captured the imagination of the English fans ever since his national team debut in the back-end of 2018, one of Sancho's signature strengths has been his ability to get past men time and again. I feel so proud for that. He's a player that provides the team with a lot of very good things. "What they are doing this season is unbelievable". "I didn't have to do anything, just touch the ball".

Spurs needed just two minutes after the restart to pull ahead when Heung-Min Son neatly sidefooted a volley into the back of the net, Vertonghen the provider with a well-timed cross. Now we are in England and you are world famous for hyping your players. "We took some rash decisions".

"But after we fixed some problems, showing them some clips at half-time and talking a little about different positions - offensive and defensive - and trying to help the team to perform better".

"I'm so pleased it's gone this way for him", he told BT Sport. We deserved the victory in the end.

Mammograms, breast cancer treatment saving thousands of lives
The study of 2,900 women at 34 screening centres, found tumours in 50 women aged 35 to 39 who had breast cancer in their family. The charity's chief executive, Baroness Delyth Morgan said that earlier tests could prove to be "an enormous breakthrough".

"It's a massive victory and the players deserve all the credit because they were fantastic". They've won the possibility to have a few days off.

"I can not tell you (my plans) but I am going to be out of England".

The game really opened up after the opening goal, but Dortmund were unable to mount any serious openings at goal as Spurs enjoyed a lion's share of the possesion.

That set the stage for a sublime second half from Tottenham, who were sparked into life by a fine finish from South Korea forward Son Heung-min.

"The game changed in the second half definitely".

"They get a lot of money before they have played games".

"Unfortunately, that's a gift".

"After that we played a bit too hastily". I tried to get him to Arsenal.
