Jan Vertonghen took to Twitter after the 1-1 draw against Arsenal to share his thoughts on the result.

The Belgian defender once again proved his worth with a goal-saving challenge in injury time to deny their North London rivals a late win.

After Hugo Lloris had saved Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s penalty, Vertonghen was first on the scene to get himself between the goal and the Arsenal striker to stop him from an easy tap-in.

If it were not for Vertonghen’s heroics, Arsenal would have closed the gap on Spurs in the Premier League table to just a single point and had supporters nervously looking over their shoulders in the race for a top four finish.

Vertonghen has been arguably Tottenham’s most consistent performer this season, especially in the recent 3-0 win against Borussia Dortmund at Wembley while operating as a left wing-back.

The 31-year-old admitted that the derby was not an easy game and is now looking forward to the trip to Germany.
