Micky Hazard says that Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld 'have been class' for Tottenham Hotspur this season.
Alderweireld only arrived at Spurs during the summer transfer window, but he has quickly established his place alongside Vertonghen at the heart of the Lilywhites’ defence.
The Belgian pair have played a big part in helping Spurs to concede just 11 times in their opening 13 Premier League matches.
Hazard has certainly been impressed by their partnership, and he also had praise for Kyle Walker and Harry Kane on social media site Twitter.

Tottenham’s defensive strength has been the key to their success this season, with Mauricio Pochettino’s side looking like formidable opponents.
Spurs have managed to go unbeaten through their last 12 Premier League matches, and there is great optimism around White Hart Lane at the moment.
Spurs are currently only two points away from the Champions League qualification spots, and a win over Chelsea at the weekend could put them into the top-four.
