Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen was delighted with his goal in victory over Swansea City.

The Belgian has struck six goals this season.

Vertonghen said: “I don’t think I have ever had such a prolific run in front of goal.

“I have always scored quite a lot of goals for a defender but I would say this is a good run. I actually work a lot on scoring in training. Not only on these finishes but after training I stay outside with a few lads and finish a little bit.

“It certainly helps, so I will try to do it a little bit more because we need everyone to chip in with goals now. I always try to score.

“I scored one and I wanted to go for a second one but I don’t care who scores, I am just aiming for third or fourth place.

“If we finish in third or fourth place without me scoring again I’ll be happy.”
