‘Gifts From God’ Spurs Fans React To Superb Display From Defender In Draw Against Leicester

Spurs could only manage a draw against Premier League champions Leicester when two title rivals of last season met at White Hart Lane. Vincent Janssen’s strike from twelve yards just before the break was cancelled out by an Ahmed Musa goal just after half-time.

One player that stood out for Mauricio Pochettino’s men in the draw was defender Jan Vertonghen, and was one of the few positives Spurs fans could take from the game at White Hart Lane.

Vincent Janssen scored his third goal in a Spurs shirt, but we are still waiting to see the Dutchman’s first goal from open play, with all three of his goals for Tottenham coming from twelve yards out.

The draw with Claudio Ranieri’s side sees Tottenham’s unbeaten record in the Premier League extended, but Spurs have not won a game this side of the international break. We have witnessed draws with West Brom, Bayer Leverkusen Bournemouth and Leicester for Spurs in addition to being beaten in the EFL Cup by Liverpool. Mauricio Pochettino’s side are now in desperate need for a win heading into November, having not won since 2nd October in all competitions.

Despite not receiving a positive result, Jan Vertonghen had a brilliant game in the Spurs back line, and came close to snatching all three points, hitting the crossbar with three minutes to go. Here is how fans reacted to his performance on Twitter.

Jan Vertonghen has been without familiar centre-back Toby Alderweireld over the last couple of weeks, and we questioned how the Spurs defence would hold up without the Belgian. Vertonghen has really stepped up in Alderweireld’s absence, with Spurs conceding just one goal when he has been playing alongside Eric Dier in the heart of the defence.

Spurs have the best defensive record in the Premier League, conceding just five league goals all season, and it is no wonder why when they have quality defenders such as Vertonghen and Alderweireld in the squad.
