One of Tottenham’s most senior players, Toby Alderweireld, has told the media that the team is fighting as one on the pitch, behind both the club and the manager.

These comments came after Alderweireld and company drew 1-1 with Watford in the Premier League yesterday, coming from behind after conceding in the opening five minutes.

This was the second game in a row in which Tottenham conceded an early goal and three consecutive matches without a win.

Spurs lost 7-2 to Bayern Munich in the Champions League and 3-0 to Brighton in the Premier League before the international break, and relied upon a contentious late Dele Alli equaliser to share the points with bottom-placed Watford this weekend.

Despite Spurs taking just three wins from 12 games so far this season, Alderweireld assures that he and his teammates put in the necessary effort against the Hornets.

Tottenham have fixtures against Red Star Belgrade, Liverpool away, and Everton away over the next two weeks.

Alderweireld said (BBC): “There is a team on the pitch and you see us fighting.

“Everyone is behind the club and the manager otherwise we could not have put the effort we put in today.”

Spurs Web Opinion:

All Spurs fans are getting is talk without any results to back it up. Alderweireld has been poor this season and few players have looked to be putting in full effort. When will these words turn into wins?

The Belgian is out of contract in North London at the end of the season.
