Tottenham fans say defender has to be reinstated ahead of Everton

Tottenham travel to Everton in the Premier League on Friday night – and some of the club’s fans on Twitter have claimed that Toby Alderweireld should be recalled to the starting XI.

Jose Mourinho is currently preparing for his side to face Merseyside club Everton tomorrow.

It’s a vital fixture for both.

For Spurs, they are seventh in the table trying to close down a six-point deficit to the top four positions. Meanwhile, opponents Everton are just a place and point behind them in the league standings, as they also hold aspirations of a Champions League finish still.

The north London club go into Friday’s game needing a response after the 3-1 defeat to Manchester United in the previous match.

Alderweireld, 32, watched on from the bench against Man United, and he’s not been a nailed-on starter this season for Spurs.

The £150,000-a-week (Salary Sport) Belgian centre-back has been one of the club’s elite stars for several years, but perhaps there are signs he’s slowing down a little.

Mourinho has been able to make his mind up on a settled centre-half partnership in the heart of defence, constantly rotating between the several options within his squad.
