Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld continues to impress, showing just why the North London side fought hard to beat Southampton to his signature in the summer.
He was once again a rock for Spurs as they beat Aston Villa last night, with only a deflected Jordan Ayew effort preventing them from keeping a clean sheet.
Tottenham won the game 3-1, with goals from Mousa Dembele, Dele Alli, and Harry Kane.
Alderweireld celebrated after the game with goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, and has been busy forging one of the Premier League's best defensive partnerships with Jan Vertonghen.
The summer signing touched the ball more times than any other player on the pitch, on 82 occasions, and completed 87.3 per cent of his passes, more than any one else in the Tottenham back four.
Alderweireld's seven clearances was the most of any defender on the pitch, barring Ciaran Clark (11), while he also made three interceptions as he sought to cut out Aston Villa's attacks.
His performances continue to impress, and his addition already looks to be one of the best summer bargains. Here is a look at how Tottenham fans reacted to his display...
