Even the most ardent Danny Rose fan will admit that Ben Davies has been in spendid form at left-back this season, however when the Welshman was ruled out of the Bournemouth match through illness, Jan Vertonghen stepped up and slotted more into a left-sided role.
The Belgian international this week became his nation’s most capped player and today put in a defensive performance of a standard I haven’t seen in a good while.
He was composed, did absolutely everything right and was a clear Man of the Match in my opinion. What a performance from Super Jan.
Tottenham fans took to Twitter to praise the big Belgian’s display against the Cherries and were suitably impressed.
Here’s a selection of Tweets:-

Jan Vertonghen could play any position on the pitch and get an 8 out of 10

Not scintillating but a solid win today for Spurs. Commanding display from @JanVertonghen I thought!

Fantastic performance from Super @JanVertonghen today! Looked good going forward, solid at the back and creative down the right side getting into some great positions!
So often our solid unsung hero, and our MOTM today by a mile! ????? #COYS #SuperJan #TOTBOU https://t.co/z4jHRXpGWK
