Mauricio Pochettino says Spurs still have work to do after beating Borussia Dortmund

Mauricio Pochettino substituted Fernando Llorente on late in the second half and the striker scored with his first touch in the opposition box

Manager Mauricio Pochettino said Tottenham “still have a lot of work to do” after beating Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund 3-0 in the Champions League last-16 first leg.

Son Heung-min, Jan Vertonghen and Fernando Llorente scored as Spurs dominated the second half at Wembley.

“3-0 is a very good result but at the same time I think we need to think that we need to finish the job,” he said.

The second leg is on 5 March at Westfalenstadion in Germany.

“Always when we play this competition and against a good side like Dortmund it is very difficult,” Pochettino added.

The Argentine appeared to make some tactical changes at half-time and the Spurs boss said he “wanted to make the best decision” to turn the performance around.

“We spoke about our defensive positions and changed things a little. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t,” he said.

“We have a lot of talented players. We have an unbelievable squad. I am happy with all the players. The only problem is that we can only play 11 players and not 22.”
