Arsene Wenger reveals why Jadon Sancho 'disappeared' in Tottenham defeat

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

Pulisic had a lively start for Dortmund but faded in the second half along with his teammates as two late goals gave Tottenham a three-goal lead Dortmund will have a hard time overcoming at home on March 5.

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

Sancho's team-mate Thomas Delaney said it has been his job to keep the 18-year-old grounded as the English media have hyped him up.

Playing some pretty extravagant football at times, Mauricio Pochettino's side were no match for the tempo which Dortmund set and were playing catch-up for nearly the entire first period.

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

"It was a massive victory for us and the players deserve all the credit".

Sancho made the decision to leave Manchester City in 2017 to join Dortmund and Jenas, ahead of Dortmund's Champions League clash with Tottenham on Tuesday, says he is happy how it has worked out for the teenager.

"We knew very well that he was capable to do what he is doing now with game time", said Pochettino.

With Dele Alli and Harry Kane in contention to return for second leg, there must be serious optimism about their prospects in this tournament.

Having weaved his magic once again, Pochettino's Spurs side are now on the brink of an unprecedented first European quarter-final under the Argentine manager, after having looked like a good bet to drop out of the group stages at one point.

"Of course 3-0 is a very good result but when you have a team in front of you like Borussia Dortmund I think always you respect them and of course we need to think we need to go to Dortmund with the idea to win. If it was a different result, people might say I'm the worst coach in the world", he said.

"We should have got the ball forward rather than played from the back for their first goal. And after that we tried but played a bit too hastily".

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.

Sancho has had a stunning first full season in the first team at Borussia Dortmund.
