0:37 Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino says Sancho's impressive Borussia Dortmund displays have not come as a shock

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.

"That is very good, we feel very proud when people expect that from our performance, but sometimes people underestimate us".

And we saw flashes of quality from both players during the match. 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. Dortmund did the double over Spurs in the 2015/16 Europa League, while Pochettino's men got revenge last season in the Champions League which included a 3-1 win at Wembley.

The timing of the first goal was very important, the cross was unreal. They deserve a lot of praise for the effort they are doing this season. We had the confidence to keep going. That was a gift. "The pressing was intensive from Tottenham".

It was nearly the flawless start for Tottenham on seven minutes, as Lucas Moura flashed his volley narrowly wide of Roman Burki's left-hand post.

Wenger revealed before the match that he tried to sign Sancho when he was at Manchester City.

England winger Sancho hit top gear on several occasions in a mesmerising first-half display, leaving two Tottenham midfielders for dead and linking with Pulisic, whose shot was blocked at the last minute.

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

Of course 3-0 is a very good result but when you have in front a team like Dortmund you always need to respect them.

While Borussia Dortmund had the better of the opening 45 minutes, the second period was dominated by the Premier League side, whose pressing resulted in Jan Vertonghen gaining possession, before producing a stunning cross that Son Heung-min duly converted.

Suddenly, Dortmund had no answers to Tottenham's high-tempo pressing and it was Vertonghen who was the hosts' unlikely hero in the 83rd minute as he volleyed home from Serge Aurier's cross.
