Vertonghen at left back but who goes in to centre half?

by Matthew Harris on September 27, 2012

Having lost the services of Benoit Assou-Ekotto prior to the Reading game, Spurs head coach Andre Villas-Boas has used three players in four matches in the left back slot – all of whom have played slightly out of position.

After Kyle Naughton’s injury, Gareth Bale filled in against QPR in an experiment that was abandoned at half time. The current incumbent is Jan Vertonghen and having played there in the past for Belgium, Jan looks the most comfortable here (although to be honest he could probably look calm and comfortable anywhere on the park)

If, as expected, Vertonghen plays here again at Old Trafford on Saturday, it does leave a question in the centre of defence. Michael Dawson made his first start of the season here on Wednesday night but Steven Caulker looks almost as calm as Jan when he plays there.

It looks like AVB will pick two from Gallas, Dawson and Caulker – which way would you go?
