Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen had no doubt that Christian Benteke would prove his doubters wrong as he prepares to face his international colleague at Villa Park this evening.

Benteke struggled to adapt to life in the Barclays Premier League when he arrived from Genk for £7million this August, but the Belgian has been on a hot streak of form recently to take his season tally to eight goals.

Vertonghen knows Benteke well from their time together with a Belgium side littered with individual brilliance, and he said: "It doesn't surprise me that he has done well. He is very good in the air and he can score. He will be a very tough player to play against."
