Alderweireld has been in solid form this season, averaging a 6.92/10 rating in the league (as per WhoScored), and it seems as if this news about his fitness has pleased many Spurs fans.
So, what do these Spurs fans think of this news on Toby Alderweireld?
Our best CB is back??

I prefer this above the ‘we’re not sure’ approach. https://t.co/vUaT9yugWR

Are you buzzing with this news?
Yes, we need him back
No, we can manage without him
In the Premier League game he missed, the defence didn’t too badly as they earned a 0-0 draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, so maybe even when Alderweireld is fully fit, Mourinho will have a decision to make.
This post continued to draw in excited Spurs fans.

Alderweireld formed part of a formidable backline in that match against City, and given his solid form in the league this season, it is no surprise to see so many Tottenham fans excited to potentially have him back so soon.
