Spurs need to start scoring goals, and fast…
Best player: Jan Vertonghen
Before this weekend’s thrashing at the hands of Manchester City, Tottenham actually had the best defensive record in the Premier League, largely thanks to the talents of this superb Belgian. Vertonghen had a stinker against City, but before that, has been pretty much impenetrable. He’s shone at both centre-half and left-back so far this term, but will eventually start in the middle once Danny Rose returns from injury.
Honourable mention: Hugo Lloris
Like Vertonghen, Lloris did not cover himself in glory against City at the weekend, but has been impressive for the rest of the season. He’s lightning fast off his line, and acts almost as a sweeper as well as a keeper.
