    Yes when their quality was most needed. They are a great partnership but there are more important reason why we didn't do well today.

    Well it isn't like we have never shipped loads of goals when Vertonghen and Alderweireld have played together. They are a great pair and you could have played them together but it wasn't the reason we lost today.

    They are a superb parternship but I don't think we lost because Foyth was playing at centre back. We didn't look up for it for most of the game, our experienced players made silly mistakes and we didn't look like scoring in the second half.

    I don't think Vertonghen showed his experience today. In fact, his handball in the area was really poor considering he is the experienced one.

    Well I think you could make an argument that it wouldn't have been our best centre back partnership considering Vertonghen has had a lengthy lay off and need games to get back to speed.

    Thought he looked all over the place in the first twenty minutes but grew into the game. However, he doesn't really excel in any department for me and I think we could do better.

    No he hasn't. He has played well but he hasn't been as good as he was.

    It was the best centre back partnership in 15/16 and 16/17 but is it now? Alderweireld has done fairly well this year but he hasn't been imperious and Vertonghen, who had come back from a lengthy lay off, was the one who gave a needless penalty away and got sent off. You can set the team up how...

    To be fair, he missed an open goal.

    Why? We played the same team against Chelsea except for Vertonghen coming in for Alderweireld. If anything, you could argue Vertonghen coming back into the team made us look a bit weaker.

    We will never know but I don't think the reason we lost the game was because we played Foyth instead of Alderweireld. Dier, Vertonghen and Lloris also made mistakes which cost us goals.

    To be honest, I don't think Alderweireld would have made a world of difference. He hasn't been the player he was in 15-16

    I don't see why Foyth is taking a hammering. Vertonghen gave a needless penalty away and then got sent off. He is the experienced one who needs to step up. I thought Foyth played pretty well.

    We deserved to lose today and shipping 3 goals in the second half isn't great. However, there is a long way to go in the season yet and it is still very tight.
