Vertonghen's Belgium teammate Thomas Vermaelen was last season's joint-highest goalscoring defender (6 goals, tied with John Terry).

Vermaelen took the Premier League by surprise after joining from Ajax, but he's yet to find the net in the league this term. 

Instead, another Ajax signing, Jan Vertonghen, has fulfilled the "Vermaelen role", abet for Tottenham rather than Arsenal.

The Belgian's 'Super-Jan' celebration has been on show at White Hart Lane this season as Andre Villas-Boas's side march towards a top four finish.
