Tottenham fans are hugely excited about the prospect of Toby Alderweireld returning to the side in the FA Cup Fourth Round replay against Newport County on Wednesday night.
Alderweireld has only played 15 games for Tottenham this season after picking up a hamstring injury in October.
That’s kept him out of the last 16 Premier League games but it looks like he might be on the brink of a comeback, right ahead of the north London derby game on Saturday.
Alderweireld himself posted an update on Twitter on Wednesday morning, featuring a picture of himself in the first-team strip with the words, “FA Cup at Wembley tonight” and an emoji of a first.

That’s got Tottenham fans in meltdown at the prospect of one of their most solid first-team stars getting ready to rejoin the fray.
The game against Newport should give him the perfect opportunity to ease himself back into action.
The League Two club gave Spurs a massive shock when they nearly beat them in the first game, but it is expected that Tottenham will have an easier time of it at Wembley.
Here is a selection of the best reactions to the Alderweireld Twitter update:
Looks like someone is ready to return… 💪💪👏⚽#COYS
