Tottenham Hotspur's South Korean striker Son Heung-Min (R) shoots to score the opening goal past Dortmund's Swiss goalkeeper Roman Buerki (L) during the UEFA Champions League round of 16 first leg football match between Tottenham Hotspur and Borussia Dortmund at Wembley Stadium in London on February 13, 2019.

Pochettino is going to be left with a dilemma and whatever decision he makes is likely to play into Dortmund's hands.

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.

"Sonny was fantastic again".

With Dele Alli and Harry Kane in contention to return for second leg, there must be serious optimism about their prospects in this tournament. They've won the possibility to have a few days off. "When you have a team in front of you like Dortmund you need to respect them", Pochettino said. He's a player who provides the team with a lot of very good things.

The images now accompany a paper detailing the confirmed black leopard recently published in the African Journal of Ecology . According to National Geographic , the extremely rare animal has melanism, where the body produces too much pigment.

The Belgian notched his first goal in the Champions League with a well-timed volley in the 83rd minute after he had set up forward Son for a 47th minute lead.

"But I thought the tactical nouse of this team in the second half was fantastic to see".

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.

"I think the way he tweaked the positions of the full-backs from the first half, put them a little bit closer to the three centre-halves, didn't allow the space down the sides".

Mauricio said: "I'm so happy but it's only the first leg and we need to finish the job". #TOTBVB @ChemicalboyyKane is a beast of a player when it comes to being clinical but Son is technically so good.
