Jan Vertonghen heaped praise on Mousa Dembele for the midfielder’s performance after Tottenham Hotspur’s 1-1 draw with Arsenal at The Emirates.

The Belgium playmaker helped the Lilywhites rescue a point against the Gunners after Dembele’s run was brought to an abrupt halt by an illegal challenge from Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny inside Petr Cech’s penalty area.

Harry Kane dispatched the penalty to cancel out Kevin Wimmer’s own goal in the first half and secure a point for Mauricio Pochettino’s side at the home of their bitter north London rivals.

Vertonghen posted a photo of his compatriot Dembele on his Instagram story, highlighting that he considered the midfielder to be the standout player in the north London derby.

Tottenham have drawn their last four Premier League games with West Bromwich Albion, Bournemouth, Leicester City and Arsenal to leave Spurs in fifth place in the Premier League table.
