Jose Mourinho has been unable to implement his preferred tactics at Tottenham Hotspur because of the injuries that his side have suffered, especially in defence and a role he had planned to make a key part of his plans for this season.

As the article alluded to, it would seem Vertonghen is being used somewhat in the hybrid role on the left at times, while Tanganga did something similar on the right against Boro. The defence can line up along these lines

—————————-Gazza
Tanganga ————Alderweireld — Vertonghen
———————————————————Sessegnon

Or:

—————————Gazza
——-Tanganga———-Toby—————Verts
Aurier

In the summer I’d like to see another left sided centre back come in, ideally one in the Vertonghen mould. I know we’ve been linked with Ake in the press, though his valuation is going to be really high I expect. Dan Axel Zagadou is an interesting prospect too.
