Vertonghen and Son will become heroes once again today after Dortmund performance

Tottenham Hotspur have been really impressive in recent times as they continue to grind out positive results in North London, despite missing Harry Kane for a long period.

Interestingly, Spurs will travel to Turf Moore to face Burnley later on today in their next Premier League fixture. The Clarets are unbeaten in their last seven league games, so it won’t be easy for Mauricio Pochettino’s side today.

Spurs managed to secure an impressive 3-0 win over Borussia Dortmund in the first leg of their round of 32 tie, which can be put down to a couple of players producing a few moments of brilliance.

So, after such an impressive performance last time out, these TWO Spurs players will be the heroes at Turf Moor…

JAN VERTONGHEN

Jan Vertonghen was one of the shining lights during Spurs’ win over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League last time out, as he managed to provide the assist for Son Heung-Min’s goal and grabbed one of his own.

Indeed, the Belgian was a rock at the back last time out, so Pochettino will be relying on him to put in another dominant performance at Turf Moor today against a Burnley side that have been dangerous in attack recently.

SON HEUNG-MIN

Son Heung-min has been a hero for Spurs in Harry Kane’s absence with his performance against Borussia Dortmund being one of his best yet, as he managed to find the back of the net and was a constant threat all night.

Burnley have been defensively sound in recent times as they continue to grind out positive results in the Premier League, so the South Korean international could play a crucial part in unlocking a sturdy Burnley defence.
