Tottenham fans react as Jan Vertonghen appears distressed during Southampton game

Tottenham Hotspur progressed into the fifth round of the FA Cup last night with a 3-2 victory over Southampton.

A Jack Stephens own goal gave Spurs the lead, but Shane Long equalised before the half-time interval.

With just three minutes remaining Son Heung-min struck to send Spurs through to face Norwich in the next round.

Is It Harder To Win Than The Euros Than The World Cup?!

It wasn’t all sweetness and light last night, however.

In the 54th minute, Jan Vertonghen was withdrawn and he left the field in visible distress, having seemingly picked up an injury.

The Belgian sat on the bench looking absolutely distraught and some have suggested it could be the beginning of the end for the defender.

Vetonghen has been at Spurs since 2012 but is out of contract in the summer.

He has played 307 times for the club but there is no saying that he will receive a new contract.

Obviously, at this stage there is no confirmation on that and supporters will wait for an update with intrigue.

Here is a selection of tweets from Spurs supporters following Vertonghen’s reaction last night:
