Video: Vertonghen red after horror tackle caps awful day for Spurs against Arsenal

Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen was given a second yellow card for a poor challenge on Alexandre Lacazette at the Emirates on Sunday.

Spurs went down 4-2 in the end after a pulsating 90 minutes of end to end football, as goals from Eric Dier and Harry Kane were cancelled out by a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang brace and strikes from Lacazette and Lucas Torreira.

The final result was all but confirmed after 85 minutes when Vertonghen was sent off after a second booking, for a horrific tackle on Lacazette which could have been worthy of a straight red in its own right.
