Belgium international heaps praise on Tottenham following draw with Arsenal

Belgium international defender Jan Vertonghen has heaped praise on his teammates and fans following Tottenham’s 1-1 draw with Arsenal in the north London derby.

The combative centre-back stated that he is pleased to be coming away from the Emirates stadium with a point.

Vertonghen played the full 90 minutes as part of a three-man defence and was only breached by an own goal scored by Kevin Wimmer.

The 29-year-old shared a photo of himself on his Instagram page along with the following caption, “Good result today in a tough game. Nice to have Harry Kane back. Fans were class.”

Star striker Harry Kane scored Tottenham’s only goal from the penalty spot. The England international was making his first appearance in over a month following an ankle injury.

The Gunners dropped down to forth place in the Premier League following today’s result and find themselves two points behind leaders Liverpool.

Arsene Wenger’s side take on an out-of-form Manchester United in their next Premier League game on November 19. Meanwhile, Tottenham take on West Ham United in their next league fixture.
