Toby Alderweireld sent Spurs fans a message on Tuesday, proclaiming ‘Matchday!’ and attaching a photo of himself in the Tottenham away kit, and fans are hoping it means he’s playing tonight.
Mauricio Pochettino has already said that Alderweireld will be in the squad for tonight’s game after freezing him out of the side recently.
However, he didn’t confirm whether the enforcer would be playing or now.
Pochettino has one eye on the huge FA Cup semi-final with Manchester United at the weekend, and has hinted at heavy rotation, with plenty of stars being rested.
And, despite speculation that Alderweireld wouldn’t play for Tottenham again, after he is still to sign a contract extension, fans are hoping to see him at the Amex tonight.
One fans said that Davinson Sanchez wasn’t playing well and that Spurs need Alderweireld to come and fill the hole.
Another simply called him a “beast” and the “best defender on the planet”, with others pleading with him to sign a new contract.
Here are the best reactions from Tottenham fans who are keen to see him in action at the Amex:
Hope you play tonight & sign a new contract 🤞🏾👊🏽
