Tottenham defender Micky van de Ven has started the season very well for Spurs, as the London side are high flying in the Premier League, and are yet to lose a game this season.

Interestingly, Van de Ven has named a Manchester United forward as the toughest he has faced.

Asked who has been the toughest forward he has played against, Van de Ven said: “Marcus Rashford, for me, is a top player.

“The quality of Rashford is incredible, he is so strong with the ball and without the ball – for me, he is a world-class player.”

Rashford has surprisingly had a poor start to the season, with just one league goal so far.
