Vertonghen was busy Saturday, scoring off a deflection and picking up a yellow card in the 2-1 win over Sunderland.

Vertonghen also led Spurs' with six clearances as well as four aerials won and had an empty net goal called off for being offsides in the final minute. If it weren't for Eriksen being such a stud in this game, Vertonghen would have been named man of the match. It's tough to deploy Vertonghen in fantasy as Spurs' simply cant get clean sheets, but this game is a promising sign for the Belgian defender. Vertonghen and Spurs' have a small break approaching and will be in action again in two weeks when they take on West Brom.

Vertonghen, who was expected to return from an ankle injury, was unable to make the 18 for Saturday's loss to West Ham.

Vertonghen had recently played in a Tottenham U-21 match, so it was believed that he was going to be ready to return Saturday. Unable to do so, his final shot this season comes against Aston Villa at White Hart Lane.

Vertonghen picked up a knee injury during Sunday's loss at Liverpool and he will be assessed in the coming days, the Tottenham Journal reports.

Tottenham don't play again until the following Monday, giving Vertonghen a little extra time to recover. It would be good news for fantasy owners, as Spurs will host Sunderland in gameweek 33.
