Watch as Jan Vertonghen pulls down Niklas Helenius’s shorts during Tottenham’s Capital One Cup clash with Aston Villa at Villa Park last night.

Spurs are through to the fourth round of the League Cup after a 4-0 win, thanks to goals from Jermain Defoe, Paulinho and Nacer Chadli.

In this clip though, Vertonghen seemed unable to prevent Helenius from powering past him.

In a last ditch attempt to stop the young Dane, the Tottenham defender grabs hold of Helenius’s shorts and ends up pulling them down to his knees.

Credit to Helenius though, his concentration never waivers and he manages to get the shot away.

Didn’t go in though, obviously.

In a video helpfully entitled Helenius undressed by Vertonghen, watch as Jan Vertonghen pulls down Niklas Helenius’s shorts during Tottenham’s Capital One Cup clash with Aston Villa below:

A possible turning point in the game, BBC Sport report:

Villa should have been awarded a penalty early in the second half when Nicklas Helenius was impeded by Jan Vertonghen.

The visitors only led by a single goal when Danish striker Helenius nipped in front of Vertonghen and bizarrely had his shorts pulled down by the tumbling Belgian defender.

However, much to the bemusement of Villa manager Paul Lambert, referee Jon Moss turned down the penalty appeals.
