Jan Vertonghen: Spurs are no longer underdogs after Dortmund demolition

Jan Vertonghen: Spurs are no longer underdogs after Dortmund demolition

And when the dust had settled on a memorable 3-0 win, nobody felt the elation more than him.

"In the first half we played really well".

"It's up there with one of the greatest results I've had in a Spurs shirt". A similar formation has worked once before in a big match where Spurs nullified Liverpool at Wembley back in 2017, as they did Klopp's old team BVB on the night.

Speaking after the game to the club's official website, Favre admitted conceding two minutes after the restart was far from ideal, with the goal leading to a poor second-half display from his side.

There is a misleading perception of Son as a dutiful but low-key character content to play in the shadows of his more famous Tottenham teammates. The manager prizes Winks's composure in pressure situations, his ability to set the tempo with his passing and against Dortmund he got the team moving.

"It's only the first leg, the first half of the tie".

He cost Spurs just £8million (Daily Mail) and he already looks good enough to play an important role on a regular basis.

"That is the target now to come to maturity in the next two to three years and show that".

Fernando Llorente celebrates after scoring Tottenham's third goal against Dortmund. The Belgian went from provider to goalscorer in the 83rd minute when he latched on to Serge Aurier's cross. "That's why we need to be careful", Son said. He wanted us - from the defenders to the attackers - to be as compact as possible and to press as a unit. "If I sign a new deal, I'll be deligted. They made it to the complete top".

"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". "Any small mistake gets punished".

"We have been there a couple of times over the last years".

"We've learned a lot; we've taken a lot on board". Spurs executed a flawless demonstration in their Round of 16 first leg against Dortmund. But they are aware of the magnitude of Wednesday's result and the possibilities that it has opened up.

"Today we won 3-0".

The result at Wembley means Dortmund are now on a four-game winless run, which has seen them exit the DFB-Pokal in the third round, as well as squander a three-goal lead against Hoffenheim in their last Bundesliga game. But it's a great night, a great result going into the second leg and hopefully we can progress.
