Defender Jan Vertonghen scored once and set up another goal for Son Heung-min as Tottenham Hotspur thumped Borussia Dortmund 3-0 at Wembley Stadium on Wednesday to give them the clear edge following the first leg of their last 16 Champions League tie.

Heung-Min Son, Jan Vertonghen and Fernando Llorente all popped up with goals for the hosts, but the defensive performance was also impressive.

Heung-Min Son continued his fine scoring form for Spurs with the opening goal on Wednesday - his ninth goal in 11 games against Dortmund - and the South Korea worldwide is also refusing to believe the job is done.

The Argentina worldwide was also confident with the ball at his feet with some long-range passing and one eye-catching moment in the first-half where he dribbled his way out of trouble in a risky position.

"We have to focus on ourselves but 3-0 in a home tie in the Champions League is a big result, and against at this moment the best German side", Vertonghen said.

High-profile mistakes from Hugo Lloris cost his side dear, particularly for the opening goal in Barca's 4-2 win at Wembley and when the French captain was sent off for a rash challenge with Spurs leading 2-1 in Eindhoven.

The South Korean only signed a five-year contract in July, but the Spurs hierarchy are ready to offer the forward another new deal before the start of next season.

Son has now scored 16 goals in all competitions - he has 11 in his last 12 matches - and, whenever he has found the net this season, Spurs have won.

"The manager told us what he thought we needed to do tactically to get on top, and it worked", Winks said. This season and last season, I was on the bench a lot of the time, and always I tried to score.

"Son was fantastic again".

Jadon Sancho: "I've been very impressed by him - he's a player with incredible qualities".

There is a misleading perception of Son as a dutiful but low-key character content to play in the shadows of his more famous Tottenham teammates.

"I am very happy for him, he deserved it".
