Tottenham Hotspur supporters on Twitter have been responding to the latest social media post from Lilywhites defender Toby Alderweireld. 

This comes after the Belgian shared a post on his official Twitter account after helping his side beat Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United 3-0 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium by scoring their third goal of the game.

How well can you remember Spurs' season so far? 1. Who is Spurs' top scorer in all competitions so far this season?

In his post, Alderweireld said that this win over the Yorkshire club was “the perfect start to 2021” before congratulating his teammate Heung-min Son on scoring his 100th goal for the club in the game.

This post then gathered a lot of replies from Spurs fans who were not shy in sharing their messages to Alderweireld’s post.

So, what did these Spurs fans have to say in response to Alderweireld’s post after the Leeds game?

Our best defender again @AlderweireldTob well played that man!! Deserved that goal too!!”

The north London club signed Alderweireld, who is currently valued at £18 million, back in the 2015 summer transfer window from Spanish club Atletico Madrid for a fee of £14.4 million.

Since then, the 31-year-old has made 216 appearances for the club across all competitions in which he has scored nine goals and provided five assists (per Transfermarkt).

Is Toby Alderweireld Spurs' best defender?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Looking at the replies to Alderweireld’s post, it’s clear that these Spurs supporters were over the moon with the defender’s performance in their latest win of the season.

With Football.london giving the Belgian a match rating of 8/10 for his performance, saying that he was “the most composed of the defenders” against Leeds, this shows just why these Spurs fans are happy with him.
