There was a positive update from the Tottenham training ground this week with the news that defender Toby Alderweireld is close to re-joining his teammates.
The Belgium international has been sidelined since suffering a serious hamstring injury against Real Madrid in the Champions league on November 01, but respected journalist Kristof Terreur suggests Alderweireld is bang schedule for a return to action in early February. "Toby Alderweireld (hamstrings) is recovering well," read his Twitter post. "Still training individually, but expected to join up with the squad next week. He’ll be fully fit in February." His return may prompt a slight change in formation with Spurs reverting to three at the back – alongside Davidson Sanchez and Jan Vertonghen – instead of their more familiar 4-2-3-1. Following a disappointing November, which included a draw with West Brom and defeats to Leicester City and north London rivals Arsenal, Pochettino’s men have lost just once [to champions elect Manchester City] to keep the Lilywhites very much in the hunt for a Top Four finish.
