Dembele vs. Wanyama thumb war in Tottenham tough man challenge

With both Mousa Dembele and Victor Wanyama on the pitch together, Tottenham boast one of the strongest, most resilient midfield pairings in world football.

However, in the quest to crown one of them the toughest gladiator at the club, Spurs had Dembele and Wanyama duke it out in an ultimate test of strength for the ages.

So, it's now official: Moussa Dembele has the strongest thumbs in the Premier League.

That said, you have to feel sorry for Wanyama, who clearly assumed the duel would be a "best of three" type arrangement.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
