Tottenham fans label Toby Alderweireld 'the one positive' after Manchester United defeat

Toby Alderweireld

Tottenham fans were impressed with Toby Alderweireld against Manchester United.

Tottenham started their Premier League season with a defeat, losing 1-0 away at Manchester United on Saturday afternoon.

Kyle Walker's own goal in the first half gave the Red Devils all three points, with Tottenham toiling away without any success in front of goal at Old Trafford.

It wasn't the start Mauricio Pochettino wanted, but new signing Toby Alderweireld impressed in defence - arguably Tottenham's best player on the day.

The Belgian centre back, 26, arrived from Atletico Madrid earlier this summer, and reunited with his former Ajax team-mate Jan Vertonghen in the heart of the Spurs defence.

Despite the defeat, Alderweireld was impressive throughout, and that didn't escape the attention of Tottenham fans after the game.

Supporters took to Twitter to praise the centre back, with many singling him out as the only positive from the game - with others even comparing him to former skipper Michael Dawson.
