Video: Jan Vertonghen is Tottenham's best goalscorer during training mini-game

The Spurs defender beat both Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen in front of goal during training.

There is barely any competition when it comes to Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen in the goalscoring department at Tottenham Hotspur.

As far as goals scored in all competitions are concerned, the duo lead the way by a distance.

In the Premier League, it is not too different.

  GoalsAppearancesMinutes Played
Christian Eriksen 8 22 1,818
Harry Kane 8 18 1,163
Nacer Chadli 7 19 1,404
Emmanuel Adebayor 2 11 797
Eric Dier 2 13 940

Indeed, only Nacer Chadli is a rival for the duo, on seven league goals so far this campaign. Between them, meanwhile, Kane and Eriksen have scored most of Tottenham's goals by far.

Jan Vertonghen, by contrast, is yet to net for Spurs this term (after having his first of the campaign controversially judged to be an own goal against Sunderland). And that's probably what you'd expect from a defender.

The Belgian, however, does have an eye for goal - and he has certainly shown it during Tottenham training.

Indeed, in the above video, Vertonghen comfortably dispatches both Kane and Eriksen during a shooting mini-game. It isn't quite an indication that he should be the club's main striker, of course, but it does show he possesses good precision and tactical awareness in front of goal when he needs to.

Check the clip out to see the 27-year-old edge Tottenham's man of the moment - Eriksen - in a play-off.
