Vertonghen: I would swap double against Liverpool for a Tottenham win

The Belgian believes Spurs were unlucky to come away from Anfield empty-handed and says that, although he is pleased with his goals, he would give them away to take a point
Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen insists he would swap the two goals he scored against Liverpool on Sunday for the points he felt his side deserved.

His goals helped Spurs overturn a 1-0 deficit after Luis Suarez opened the scoring for Liverpool.  However, individual mistakes from the north London side saw the Reds run out 3-2 winners.

Andre Villas-Boas' side had gone 12 top-flight games unbeaten prior to their loss at the Reds, two points ahead of fourth-placed Chelsea, who have a game in hand over the north London outfit.

"It was frustrating," Vertonghen told the club's official website.

"Over the 90 minutes we were better team and of course, I scored twice, but I would rather we’d won this game.

"I’m pleased with my goals but believe me, I would give my goals away to even take a point.

"As I said, I thought we were the better team and I’m disappointed we didn’t get a win or a point because we deserved it."
