Tottenham Hotspur fans were quick to take to social media to celebrate last night’s victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford.
Taking a 3-0 victory with goals coming from Harry Kane and Lucas Moura, well it was a fabulous night on a number of fronts and one man who benefited from that hugely was centre-half Toby Alderweireld given all the speculation surrounding his future this summer.

The Belgian international posted the above on his own account and was soon swamped with positive messages and fans lauding his own showing on the day, but there were also numerous calls for him to contract up to the club for longer and put an end to all the speculation doing the rounds.
Of course, with Manchester United’s reported interest in him over the summer, that made his tweet even sweeter for some fans given the scoreline at the final whistle.
Please stay – unbelievable today

Well played Toby, you was immense tonight and proved for anyone in doubt just why you are one of the best central defenders not only in the Premier League but in the world.
The telepathic relationship with Vertonghen is still there and is strong as ever, rolls-royce performance.

By far the best CB in the premier league

That is a tiny selection of the messages fans responded with and after a slower first half, the 29-year-old wasn’t the only player to end strongly so that should bode well for the future.
