Tottenham Hotspur are unbeaten in 17 matches in all competitions after comfortably beating Huddersfield Town 2-0 at Wembley in the English Premier League on Saturday.
It’s their longest unbeaten streak since 1967 and couldn’t be coming at a more perfect time with Juventus set to visit this week and the race to reach the top four in the top-flight heating up.
They never looked like losing Saturday’s match against the Terriers with Son Heung-min securing the win with a goal in each half, much to the delight of supporters.
Fans were also pleased to keep a clean sheet and see one of their heroes return after missing out on last week’s match against Crystal Palace.
Jan Vertonghen was a doubt for both the Huddersfield and Juventus match after suffering an ankle injury in training, but was in exceptional form on Saturday, looking set to lead the defence against the Italians too.
Rated at £25.2m by Transfermarkt, some supporters believe he’s not only the best defender at the club, but also the best in the entire league.
They took to Twitter to enthuse about his performance against Huddersfield…

Mad the amount of rival fans that still think Alderweireld > Vertonghen.

Toby first season and a bit was unreal but Vertonghen last 18 months been just as good as Toby was at his best if not better. People underrating Jan rather than overrating Toby mainly.

It's easy to take for granted just how great Vertonghen has been this season because he plays every game. Was REAL obvious today after not having him for a week. He's been incredible.

It is absolutely absurd that Vertonghen isn’t universally accepted as the best defender in the Premier League. Impeccable in every match for over 2 years now.

Jan vertonghen is world class

Vertonghen is the best CB in the league

Jan Vertonghen is the centre back version of Mousa Dembele. That is all.
