Toby Alderweireld 'ready' to face Arsenal after injury lay-off
sb0bet Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld has declared himself ready to face Arsenal after returning from the longest lay-off of his career.
Alderweireld played 90 minutes against Newport County on Wednesday, his first appearance since tearing his hamstring against Real Madrid 14 weeks ago.
The Belgian was rarely tested during a dominant win at Wembley and the decision now for Mauricio Pochettino is whether to field the 28-year-old in Saturday's crunch north London derby.
Asked if he is ready, Alderweireld said: "Yeah, I feel very good. After 90 minutes, I worked very hard to play those kind of games and be ready and I feel very good." sb0bet
Alderweireld was out for seven weeks last season with a separate knee problem and during both absences, Tottenham missed their main centre-back.
"This has been the longest ever [lay-off], it was a little bit unfortunate there was a tear in the tendon, not only the muscle, and it just takes time," Alderweireld said. sb0bet
"We had to do that time and work very hard. It's difficult. It was a proper hamstring injury and the risk of re-tearing it was very big.
"That's why we took our time and worked very hard so my muscles are ready for this type of game and to play a lot of games again." sb0bet
