The former Tottenham man has taken to social media after the Europa League draw.

Graham Roberts admits Borussia Dortmund represent a 'hard draw' for Tottenham Hotspur in the last 16 of the Europa League.

Dortmund are the bookies' favourites for the European title, meaning Tottenham couldn't have got a worse draw on paper.

However, Mauricio Pochettino's men are in form and will relish the chance to face one of Europe's stronger teams.

And Roberts feels the fact Tottenham are away in the first leg is a massive advantage for the north London side.

Elsewhere, Liverpool drew Manchester United in a very fascinating tie indeed.

Would Spurs have preferred drawing another Premier League team or is Dortmund a better bet for them?

The Tottenham back four will have to deal with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, of course, and a fair few others...

Naturally, though, the White Hart Lane outfit have plenty of threats of their own. Can Pochettino and his charges overcome Thomas Tuchel's men? Suddenly, the Europa League looks far more exciting...
