Dortmund top-scorer Reus in fitness race to face Spurs

Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund inexplicably surrendered a three-goal lead in the second half to draw 3-3 against Hoffenheim on Saturday as their advantage at the top was cut to five points.

Hoffenheim remained unimpressed and pressed forward meanwhile Dortmund missed the chance to seal the deal as Sancho rattled only the left post in the 75th minute. There was a few conversations after the draw with me, Dele Alli and Harry, just saying "see you soon" and "it's going to be a good match". "It will be very nice to stand on the pitch with him on Saturday".

"It was insane how many clubs wanted me - it shows how well you're doing, but I always felt Dortmund was right for me", Sancho summed up. The move paid off as he made his full England debut last October. "Borussia Dortmund were the club I chose, I thought this will be my new home and I'll work very hard to prove myself".

Dortmund are on 50 points after wasting a three-goal lead to draw 3-3 with Hoffenheim earlier yesterday. Most of all, though, he said that young players, and Sancho in particular, joined Dortmund because of the prospect of first-team football. He describes Dortmund team-mates like Reus, Mario Goetze and Belgium midfielder Axel Witsel as "role models" who help him "improve every day".

Reus has scored 17 goals, setting up 11 more this season in all competitions, and director of sport Michael Zorc says "we will decide at the start of the week" whether he can face Spurs.

Video footage captured by Skeans shows the camera frame focus on Trump before suddenly pointing down toward a crowd. Knox said the president should make clear to his supporters that violence against reporters is unacceptable.

"I haven't been surprised by his performances, but with how fast he managed to get to this senior level, because before that he only played for youth teams".

At the last count, he has netted six times alongside 10 assists in the Bundesliga this campaign and also debuted for England's Three Lions against the United States of America at Wembley a year ago.

"The club had shown with a player like Christian Pulisic that they were going in the right way, playing youngsters and giving them a chance".

Dortmund travel to Wembley to take on Tottenham Hotspur in the first leg of the last-16 Champions League tie on Wednesday, while the Blades host fellow promotion contenders Middlesbrough.
