Fearless football a joy for Jan

Posted on 21 April 2016  - 02:00

Enjoyment and fearless football – key phrases propelling our flying form at the end of a memorable season, according to Jan Vertonghen.


The team produced one of their best performances of the campaign in the 4-0 win at Stoke on Monday night.

That made it 10 victories in our last 13 matches and four clean sheets in our last five as we chase down Leicester City at the top of the Premier League - their lead now five points with four matches remaining.

“If you see the way this team plays, I can see us performing like this until the end of the season, we’re just enjoying so much playing together,” said Jan, who has returned seamlessly from almost three months on the sidelines in our last two matches.

“Are we fearless? Yes, I think that’s true. The way we’re playing, that is the right word. We just enjoy going out there and playing our football.”

West Brom are next as we step out again on Monday night (8pm). “This is a team that can cause problems,” added Jan. “But if we play how we’ve been playing, we should be okay.”
