Strength in depth has been the key to Tottenham Hotspur’s success in the early part of the season, defender Jan Vertonghen has said.
Tottenham lost influential striker Harry Kane to injury last month but with South Korea’s Son Heung-min picking up the scoring slack, Spurs are the only team yet to lose in the Premier League this season.
The London club sit third, a point behind leaders Manchester City after eight games.
“I think the squad is as strong as any in the Premier League,” Vertonghen told British media. “It’s a sign that we can miss anyone and it shows the strength of the team.
“It started with Harry. People said we would miss (goalkeeper) Hugo (Lloris) and Michel Vorm showed his quality against Liverpool. Eric Dier showed it against Leverkusen.”
