We haven’t done one of these for a while and it’s nice to finally be given the opportunity! After yesterday’s 3-1 win over Reading the Sky TV Cameras gave the champagne to Jermain Defoe after his two goals secured the points but were there any other candidates?
In a poll carried out by the club, Jan Vertonghen scored heavily after a solid display at the heart of the defence. The Belgian’s calmness was reminiscent (for those old enough to remember) of Richard Gough, during his brief stay at the club.
Gylfi Sigurdsson, Aaron Lennon and Gareth Bale also played major parts in the win but is Defoe your man or is someone else more deserving of our accolade?
