Fans of Tottenham Hotspur have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which highlighted footage of Toby Alderweireld from the club’s recent Premier League victory against Arsenal.
In the footage, Alderweireld can be seen making a great last-ditch challenge on Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who was bearing down dangerously on the Spurs goal during Tottenham’s 2-0 victory over their north London rivals last Sunday.
So, what did these Tottenham Hotspur fans have to say in reaction to the footage of Toby Alderweireld?
A Ledleyesque tackle. ?

The £18 million-rated Alderweireld has highly impressed for Spurs so far this season, averaging a WhoScored match rating of 6.98 over his seven Premier League fixtures – ranking him as Jose Mourinho’s sixth-best player in the top flight.
Do you think Toby Alderweireld is Tottenham's best defender?
Look at Hugo reaction ???
