Former Tottenham defender Graham Roberts took to social media to sing the praises of Harry Kane, Moussa Sissoko and Jan Vertonghen after Spurs' 1-1 draw with Arsenal on Saturday.
Spurs initially found themselves behind when Aaron Ramsey opened the scoring for Arsenal in the first half, but they were able to earn themselves a point when Kane stroked home a confident penalty with just 15 minutes left on the clock. The point was then confirmed as Hugo Lloris saved a last minute penalty from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Well we did not play well but in some ways not losing to them the way we played feels like a win. Let’s get back ali winks dier and go again! Have to say again @MoussaSissoko what a shift you put in mate. And @HKane they must be sick of the sight of you COYS— Graham Roberts (@GrahamRoberts4) March 2, 2019
Have to say @JanVertonghen recovery tackle from that pen is what a north london derby is all about incredible quick reaction to get to it and make tackle.— Graham Roberts (@GrahamRoberts4) March 2, 2019
Kane has scored twice in three games since making his return from injury, finding the net against Burnley and Arsenal, proving just how important he is to Spurs. He's also back in the hunt for the golden boot, after increasing his tally to 16 goals - two behind leading scorer Sergio Aguero.
Sissoko has revitalised his Tottenham career this season after it previously seemed as though he could be surplus to requirements. He's stepped up and put in plenty of tidy performances in the big matches for Mauricio Pochettino's side and his commanding performance against Arsenal exemplified how much he has improved during the 2018/19 campaign.
Meanwhile, Vertonghen made arguably one of the most important tackles of the season after Lloris' penalty save, making a last ditch block to prevent Aubameyang from converting a rebound - even if he was inside the box when the spot kick was taken.
