Tottenham fans on Twitter delighted with Vertonghen’s impressive return

Havng only just returned to fitness, it’s been a strange couple of weeks for Spurs’ Jan Vertonghen. The Belgian defender is usually the calming defensive influence that Tottenham look to when things get tough and his ability on and off the ball when under pressure is sublime. However, after being uncharacteristically sent off last weekend, he returned yesterday and was back to his best.

Vertobghen returned to partner up with Toby Alderweireld in front of Hugo Lloris and the Lilywhites loved it. Mauricio Pochettino left both Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen out of his starting eleven ahead of their Champions League trip to Barcelona on Tuesday, and the makeshift Tottenham line-up led by Dele Alli, Lucas Moura and Heung Min-Son fired their way to a 2-0 win, which the on-looking fans loved.

The next step for this Tottenham side is going to be a tough one. They travel to the Nou Camp to take on a Lionel Messi inspired Barcelona, and they’ll be desperate to get a result against the Catalan giants as they need to match or better Inter Milan’s result against PSV if they’re to qualify. If Vertonghen can rock up and be on top form alongside his partner in crime, Alderweireld then they’ll have a chance. It will be a slim chance, but still a chance.

The Lilywhites expect big things from Vertonghen when he steps out onto the pitch and after delivering last night, the fans expect the same on Tuesday.
