The Belgian defender made his Spurs debut after signing from Ajax earlier this summer and impressed in defence with his attacking style although the North Londoners could not get the win as the Baggies netted an injury-time leveller at White Hart Lane.
"I was pleased with my performance," said Vertonghen.
"I did a few good things, a few bad things, but we cannot be happy with the result.
"I like getting forward. I can drive the ball into midfield. That's what the manager has asked me to do.
"We have a home game against Norwich next Saturday and we have to win that one. It would be good for our confidence."
