The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern in the Transfer Tavern are looking forward to the month of February. It’s set to be a season-defining month for the Lilywhites, with their performances likely to have massive implications in the context of the season.
Games against Liverpool, Tottenham, and Juventus will take place during the month, whilst difficult clashes against Crystal Palace and Huddersfield are also on the cards. As a result, the success of their season could well depend on how well they perform throughout February.
Fortunately, Belgian journalist Kristof Terreur has provided some very good fitness news for the club ahead of the spell. According to Terreur, defender Toby Alderweireld is continuing his recovery from injury and is set to join up with the main squad next week. As a result, February is a very realistic timetable for his return to full fitness.

The timing of his return couldn’t be better for Spurs, with his defensive quality desperately needed by Mauricio Pochettino. Spurs have done well in his absence, but it’s clear that their solidity at the back increases dramatically whenever Alderweireld is involved.
The Belgian hasn’t played for Spurs since the start of November, and so his return will come as a massive boost to Tottenham as they continue their charge in the second-half of the campaign.
Alderweireld, alongside Jan Vertonghen, had been a vital part of Tottenham’s recent success.
Regardless of how good they have been at the back in his absence, there is no doubting that they are a better side with him in the team. His return will be a huge boost ahead of an incredibly tough run of games.
