Stat Proves That Spurs Have Got It Right At The Back
It’s been a topsy-turvy season for Tottenham so far but recent results seem to suggest that things are moving in the right direction.
Key to this recovery has been the growing partnership in central defence between Jan Vertonghen and new signing Federico Fazio. Mauricio Pochettino chopped and changed his centre backs during his early months at the club, but seems to have settled on Vertonghen and Fazio.
The following stat reveals the impact the pairing makes to Spurs when they play together. In 14 games in all competitions, Tottenham have won ten and lost only once with Vertonghen and Fazio in partnership. Is this a combination that spells long-term success for Spurs?
