Who needs Harry Kane and Dele Alli when you've got Jan Vertonghen?

A quick glance at the Tottenham line-up might have caused some confusion earlier this evening at the national stadium.

Centre-back Jan Vertonghen was wheeled out at left wing-back in what could only be described as a bizarre decision by manager Mauricio Pochettino.

But Poch knew.

Despite some first-half difficulties dealing with everybody's favourite teen sensation Jadon Sancho, the Spurs defender bagged an assist and a goal in the second half as his side romped to a 3-0 win.

Twitter fans were delighted (and shocked) to see Vertonghen put in a man-of-the-match performance in a new position.

Hopefully we can see Vertonghen make an appearance as a striker before Kane returns from injury.
