Tottenham fans react as Jan Vertonghen starts vs Man United

Tottenham vs Man United

Tottenham host Manchester United on Sunday as they look to climb above Manchester City in the league.

Spurs are currently 3rd in the division and enjoying their best ever start to a Premier League season.

They are nine points behind 1st place Liverpool who played and won yesterday. But that gap would be reduced to six points with a win over United.

However, Man United remain unbeaten under interim boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Solskjaer has taken charge of four United league games and won them all.

Those wins did come against Cardiff, Huddersfield, Newcastle and Bournemouth though, meaning Spurs will be by far Solskjaer’s biggest test.

Jan Vertonghen returns

Heading into the game with United, the biggest talking points for Spurs is the return of Jan Vertonghen.

Vertonghen’s season so far has been one littered with injuries.

The Belgian would miss five league games earlier in the season with a hamstring problem.

That same injury would then keep Vertonghen out of Tottenham’s last five Premier League fixtures.

But it seems the experienced defender is now back fit just in time for Sunday’s huge game.

Twitter reactions

Here is how some Spurs fans reacted to Vertonghen’s return.
