Spurs v Borussia Dortmund - Mauricio's preview

Jadon Sancho has been a key figure in Borussia Dortmund's side this season

Borussia Dortmund coach Lucien Favre has yet to decide if Jadon Sancho will be punished after he left his passport at home and delayed the team's flight to London ahead of facing Tottenham in the Champions League.

Dortmund have arrived in England and will train at Wembley on Tuesday before the first leg of the last-16 tie.

Still just 18, the winger has made a real impression in the Bundesliga, scoring seven times in 21 league games this season to help his side top the table.

"The quality he was showing at Manchester City and with his national team [at age group level] - we were talking in the last few years, that he was a massive prospect to be a very good player".

Instead, injury to Harry Kane left Mauricio Pochettino short of options and Llorente was retained to provide much needed depth and experience to a shallow and inexperienced front line in north London.

'I really believe we can win every game we play, but we know this competition is so tough.

Mauricio said: "The Champions League is different and you can not assess a team in different competitions like the Bundesliga, where they are doing a fantastic job, a fantastic season and they top of the table for the whole season".

Rose suffered a shin wound at the end of Sunday's 3-1 victory over Leicester, being withdrawn in the 88th minute, and the club are assessing whether he will even make the squad.
