Defence - Spurs v Chelsea

The Tottenham Hotspur stars were pictured together ahead of France v Belgium.

Hugo Lloris, Jan Vertonghen, Mousa Dembele and Nacer Chadli of Tottenham were all smiles together on Saturday evening - despite the Belgian trio knowing they will be up against Frenchman Lloris on Sunday afternoon.

France face Belgium on international duty this weekend and Lloris, whose team-mates will be so used to him bailing them out of tricky situations, will this time be up against the likes of Vertonghen, Dembele and Chadli, probably stopping some of their efforts on goal.

The Spurs bond stayed strong ahead of the game, however, as they were all smiles for the camera (except Vertonghen who looked the wrong way!).

It is only a friendly, after all, as well, meaning the rivalry between the Tottenham stars should stay just that - 'friendly.'

Lloris will go into the clash against his team-mates off the back of another good season in between the sticks for the north London side, although the recent links with Manchester United may have given him something to think about...

Vertonghen, meanwhile, hasn't had his best season, while Dembele has fallen out of favour under boss Mauricio Pochettino at club level. Chadli, by contrast, has fared well this term, especially in comparison with his debut campaign at White Hart Lane.
