Tottenham won out in the North London derby this afternoon as Toby Alderweireld headed home with ten minutes remaining to help see off Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal.
With the scores level at half-time, the game sprung to life following the drinks break in the second half, as Jose Mourinho’s men began to turn the screw.
And they got their rewards for showing some attacking intent, as Belgian defender Alderweireld headed into the top corner from Heung Min Son’s corner.
Spurs were solid from the outset and it was clear Mourinho had been working on things with his team after a miserable few weeks. Indeed, Alderweireld and Davinson Sanchez kept the Gunners’ attack at bay for most of the 90 minutes.
But it was Alderweireld who took the plaudits not only for his goal but his overall display at the heart of the defence.
Plenty of Spurs fans were quick to praise the experienced defender on Twitter. Here, then, is a look at what some Tottenham supporters had to say in response to Toby Alderweireld’s latest showing.
