At the start of the second half during Tottenham’s 4-0 win at Aston Villa in the Capital One Cup we witnessed one of the comedy moments of the season.
On the serious side, Aston Villa had a very strong claim for a penalty shout as Jan Vertonghen pulled the pants down of Nicklas Helenius.
Referee Jonathan Moss waved play on but had he shown red to the Spurs defender, Aston Villa would have had the chance to bring it back to 1-1 and Vertonghen would have likely received his marching orders.
Instead, moments later Paulinho made it 2-0 and Spurs never looked back.
Meanwhile, the internet was awash with pictures of Vertonghen pulling down Helenius’ shorts to plenty of guffaws and laughter.
Vertonghen’s face is a picture and Helenius will be hoping for better moments in English football.
