Tottenham stun Dortmund at Wembley

The north London club, who travel to Germany for the return match early next month, do not have a fixture until February 23 having been knocked out of the FA Cup. "When you have a team in front of you like Dortmund you need to respect them", Pochettino said.

Son started a brilliant second-half display in the last-16 first leg at Wembley by opening the scoring from Jan Vertonghen's excellent cross, before Vertonghen and substitute Fernando Llorente put Mauricio Pochettino's men on course for the last eight in the final seven minutes.

"I don't have any words for the second half".

The best defence is when you attacking and the team from Germany will be wide open for the picking, as they search for three goals to equal and four goals to overcome the almost impossible deficit.

Son, who has scored nine goals in 11 games against Dortmund, added: "The timing of the first goal was very important, the cross was unreal, I didn't have to do anything, just touch the ball".

"Sonny was fantastic again".

"The first half was very hard, first of all because we never felt the confidence to play", said Pochettino post match.

One of the top inform players at the moment! His smile, he translates good energy and his performance in every single game is improving and improving. "If it was a different result, people might say I'm the worst coach in the world", he said. "You just need to take the right decision the next time because football is about winning".

Insisting his players deserved all the praise after emerging from a gruelling schedule with their best result of the season, Pochettino said: "I want to congratulate my players one more time". #TOTBVB @ChemicalboyyKane is a beast of a player when it comes to being clinical but Son is technically so good.
