?Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino praised his 'fantastic' side following their ?3-0 win over Borussia Dortmund in the first leg of the Champions League tie, while also claiming people 'underestimate' his squad.

Tottenham have become something of a second-half team in the Champions League this season, with 11 of their 12 goals in the competition coming after the interval, as Pochettino admitted his side had to improve after half-time, especially with ?Dortmund looking the better team in the opening 45 minutes.

He stated: " For me, it's only the first leg and first half of the tie.

While Tottenham are in excellent position to reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League for the first time since 2011, Pochettino is ignoring any notion that the tie against BVB is already over.

?Spurs were able to beat the current ?Bundesliga leaders without key duo Harry Kane and Dele Alli, with Pochettino delighted to come away with the win despite missing the attacking pair.

Second-half goals from Son Heung-min, Jan Vertonghen and Fernando Llorente capped a memorable night for the north London club, putting them in a terrific position to reach the quarter-finals ahead of the second leg on March 5.

Of course we are happy now because it's a good result but there's still a lot of work to do."
