Published Add your comment

3. Jan Vertonghen

Jan Vertonghen excelled in his first season in his Premier League campaign in 2012/13. Defensively he was a rock and was in fine form for Tottenham throughout the season.

The Belgian international was also a threat going forward, scoring four goals league for the north London outfit. And, at Ajax the season before, he clocked up a remarkable eight goals in just 31 league games for his Dutch side.

After a season in the Premier League, don't be surprised if the 26-year-old bags at-least five goals this term.
