Mauricio Pochettino announced his side to play Brighton in the Premier League on Tuesday night and fans are delighted to see Toby Alderweireld back.

Pochettino promised he would rotate his side tonight, with one eye on the FA Cup semi-final against Man United at the weekend.

And he made six changes in total, resting Dele Alli, giving Lucas Moura a start, and playing Victor Wanyama and Moussa Sissoko.

The team was announced on the official Tottenham Twitter page on Tuesday evening, ahead of the 7.45pm kick-off:

But it was the return of Alderweireld  that sent Spurs fans into meltdown after they feared they’d seen the last of him in a Spurs shirt.

Tottenham will be keen to get back on track after a 3-1 defeat by Man City in the last game out, although neither team have a huge amount to play for tonight.

A top-four place in the Premier League is as good as secured already for Spurs, with Chelsea seven points behind, but Spurs will want to make sure. 

And Brighton need a win to make themselves safe from relegation. 

Tottenham fans are hoping the return of Alderweireld can help them to a clean sheet and all three points.

Here are the best reactions to the line-up from Tottenham fans:
