There were a number of impressive individual displays in Tottenham’s 1-1 draw with Real Madrid at the Bernabeu on Tuesday night.
We saw Hugo Lloris made a string of stunning saves, including an incredible point blank stop to prevent Karim Benzema from scoring for Madrid.
Harry Winks also caught the eye. The 21-year-old dictated the play in midfield and looked completely unfazed by the occasion.
The entire defence was in top form, but a special mention has to go to Jan Vertonghen.
The Belgian played on the left of a back five – not his preferred position – and he did brilliantly.
For me, Vertonghen has become one of the best defenders in the world under Mauricio Pochettino’s management.
His one-on-one defending against Madrid was particularly effective, as evidenced by the video below.
