The Dutch 'keeper, deputising for the injured Hugo Lloris, someone kept the ball out after Coutinho was left all alone 10 yards out to strike low towards the bottom corner of the Spurs goal.

As you might expect, the superb stop has been the biggest talking point of the first half so far as we approach the half hour mark.

Vorm is certainly a popular name on Twitter after his save, too.
