Juan Foyth and Lucas Moura Start - Tottenham Hotspur Team vs Dortmund Confirmed

Eric Dier Marco Reus

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has made four changes to his Spurs side for tonight's Champions League clash at home to Borussia Dortmund which gets underway in less than an hour.

Pochettino's decision to pick Jan Vertonghen as a left wing-back against Dortmund paid off handsomely as the Belgian set up Son's opener before scoring the second goal himself.

"The team is fighting".

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

Spurs completed an unlikely turnaround to qualify for the knockout stages of the competition having collected only one point from their first three group games. For Spurs, it's Harry Kane and half of their midfield, although Victor Wanyama came off the bench on Sunday and Eric Dier seemingly could return after a virus.

"Son was fantastic again. His performances every game are improving and improving".

'For me, it is only the first leg, it is only the first half of the tie.

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

"But after we fixed some problems, showing them some clips at half-time and talking a little about different positions - offensive and defensive - and trying to help the team to perform better. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't", said the Argentine. We didn't feel what we planned to play. We have an unbelievable squad. For me, I am happy.
