Second-half goals from Heung-min Son, Jan Vertonghen and Fernando Llorente saw Spurs tear Dortmund apart at Wembley, leaving themselves within touching distance of the quarter-finals. For a 13th time this season, Spurs have gone on to win when he has scored.

It looked as if the hosts had taken the lead through Nicolas Tagliafico's scrambling header in the 37th minute, but the first use of a Video Assistant Referee (VAR) in Champions League history deemed the Argentinian fullback offside.

Tottenham went into the tie without Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Ben Davies for the Wembley showdown, but Mauricio Pochettino's side did not let that trouble them as they powered to victory.

Revitalised, Tottenham shook off the fatigue from their gruelling schedule and romped to a 3-0 win that has put them in sight of the Champions League last eight for the first time since 2011.

Son was fantastic again, he's doing fantastic.

"His smile, he translates good energy and his performance in every game is improving. We are so happy with him". Forcing Dortmund to play down their left with Pulisic and Diallo, they struggled to create the same opportunities in the second half. Aside from one unsafe shot from Lucas Moura, Tottenham really didn't create too much in the first half. A lineup that consisted of a 3-4-1-2 formation, with the biggest questions raised on the left side, where Jan Vertonghen was playing left wing-back.

It was an incredible thrill for him, being up close to Cristiano Ronaldo and all of the rest, but not least because first and foremost Winks is a Spurs fan who started going to home games with his father, Gary, when he was six or seven. "The cross was unreal".
