Tottenham leave their Wembley woes behind them with a fine 3-1 win in their Champions League opener against Borussia Dortmund.

TOTTENHAM (3-4-2-1)

HUHO LLORIS – 6 

No chance with Yarmolenko’s stunner and lucky to see Aubameyang’s effort ruled out. 

TOBY ALDERWEIRALD – 7

The organiser in Tottenham’s back three. Another assured display for the Belgian.

DAVINSON SANCHEZ – 7

Looks to be a sound investment but not the finished article yet. 

Hugo Lloris could do very little to prevent Borussia Dortmund leveling the scores to 1-1

JAN VERTONGHEN – 6

Spoiled an excellent display by getting sent off, perhaps harshly, for an elbow on Gotze. 

SERGE AURIER – 7

Handed his Spurs and kept things steady down the right-hand side. 

MOUSA DEMBELE – 6.5

Uncharacteristically wasteful in possession during first-half but improved.

ERIC DIER – 6.5

Typically combative in midfield and kept things ticking over. Booked.

BEN DAVIES – 6.5

Made a couple of crucial interceptions but didn’t provide usual threat in attack.

HEUNG-MIN SON – 7.5

Dele who? The Korean made sure Spurs didn’t miss Alli with a cracker.

CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN – 7 

Was quiet until finding Kane for the third. A telling impact again from the Dane.

HARRY KANE – 8.5

Looks so at home at this level. Tottenham’s match-winner…again.

MANAGER: MAURICIO POCHETTINO – 7.5

The Germans dominated the ball. The Tottenham manager won’t give two hoots.

BORUSSIA DORTMUND (4-3-2-1)

Burki 3; Piszczek 5, Papastathopoulos 5, Toprak 5 (Zagadou 80, 5.5), Toljan; Dahoud 6.5 (Castro 72, 5.5), Sahin 6.5, Kagawa 6.5 (Gotze 67, 5.5); Yarmolenko 7.5, Pulisic 7; Aubameyang 7. 

MANAGER: PETER BOSZ – 6

REFEREE: GIANLUCA ROCCHI – 4

Aubameyang’s second half strike should have stood. Awful call from the officials.
