He picked up the ball on the halfway line, before dropping his left shoulder to beat one player and then deciding to take on anyone who got in his way.

He made it to the edge of the box but after cutting back onto his left foot, his shot was blocked by former Spurs player and Hull City captain Michael Dawson.

Spurs fans were quick to point out that their centre-back had just embarked on a run, similar to that of the Argentina and Barcelona superstar.

While Spurs fans who are old enough to remember the 1981 FA Cup final, compared the Belgian international’s run to Ricky Villa’s.
