Spurs centre back Federico Fazio has come under a fair bit of stick this season for his poor defensive performances. Indeed, he and Kaboul have often been singled out as Tottenham's main weakness.

Despite this, the former Sevilla defender has improved in recent weeks as he continues to adapt to English football, as highlighted by the stat above.

Fazio is winning an average of 5.5 aerial duels per game - making him the highest ranked defender in the Premier League.

There is hope among Tottenham fans that he and Vertoghen can form a solid partnership at the back as Spurs continue their push for European football.
