Jermaine Jenas says Tottenham duo are the best in the Premier League

The former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder and current pundit took to Twitter during the north London side's Europa League clash with Anderlecht.

Jermaine Jenas feels there isn't a better centre-back pairing in the Premier League than Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld.

Indeed, the ex-Tottenham midfielder and current BBC pundit took to Twitter during Tottenham's 2-1 win over Anderlecht on Thursday night.

The White Hart Lane outfit were pegged back after Harry Kane's opener but sealed victory late on in the capital.

Ironically, however, Tottenham conceded shortly after Jenas's tweet.

And Vertonghen looked a little dazed and confused as Anderlecht punished some indecision to equalise against the north London side in the Europa League.

Luckily for Spurs, though, Mousa Dembele struck with a fantastic late effort to secure a 2-1 win for Mauricio Pochettino's men.

Vertonghen and Alderweireld will need to be at their sharpest on Sunday during the north London derby. The Tottenham centre-backs have been solid for the majority of the season so far but the odd slip-up has occurred in the Europa League.

Spurs fans will no doubt want their unbeaten run in the Premier League to remain unaffected! Especially against Arsenal. As for their Eurpean campaign, Dembele's late goal has done their position in the group a world of favours.
