Tottenham Hotspur fans react to Jan Vertonghen's injury on Twitter

Tottenham Hotspur supporters are hopeful that Kevin Wimmer can cover for Jan Vertonghen.

Tottenham Hotspur fans have been left devastated by the news that Jan Vertonghen is set to miss a considerable period of action with a medial ligament injury.

Vertonghen damaged his knee during Spurs’ match against Crystal Palace at the weekend.

The Belgian defender twisted awkwardly, after being caught by Connor Wickham’s elbow while defending a corner kick.

Tottenham have built their success around the strength of their backline this season, and they have a better defensive record than any other side in the Premier League.

A major reason for this has been Vertonghen’s strong partnership with Toby Alderweireld in the heart of their defence.

With the pair now set to be split up, it falls to Kevin Wimmer to cover for Vertonghen and Spurs fans are hopeful than the summer signing has what it takes.

Here is the best reaction to Vertonghen’s injury news from Tottenham fans on social media site Twitter.
