Vertonghen: We can prosper without Bale

Jan Vertonghen believes Tottenham Hotspur's victory over Swansea City on Sunday shows they are not reliant on Gareth Bale.

• Blog: Spurs without Bale

Bale has been in fine form this season but has been out of action for two weeks with a hamstring injury.

However, Spurs claimed a deserved 1-0 win against Swansea at the weekend with Clint Dempsey filling in for the Wales international, and Vertonghen feels it is testament to the strength of the squad.

"Maybe we needed a little more width on the pitch but Clint has replaced Gareth very well, like he has done with all the strikers already," he said. "Of course Gareth is a world-class player, but we did well without him.

"We have a big squad but have had too many injuries, but even without those players we've played quite well. When everybody comes back we'll have a very strong team."
