Tottenham Hotspurs are undoubtedly one of the Premier League clubs showing the greatest degree of consistency this season. They are currently third in the league, with just five points separating them from the League leaders Leicester City. The Tottenham defender Tony Alderweireld has insisted that the lion part of the club’s successful run is the sheer brilliance of their manager, Mauricio Pochettino.

Defence of the club have been rock solid, conceding only 19 league goals, the best stat in the league. They have also lost just thrice in the league including an unbeaten away record that has now reached 11 games.

Now, the 26-year-old Belgian defender who has been in towering form for the North London has lauded the ethics and strategy of Mauricio Pochettino.

“He only puts in guys who work very hard,” Tony Alderweireld spoke to The Mirror. “A lot of guys have left the club. If you do no follow the path you don’t belong in Tottenham.

He also added that there is no talisman in the club, where all are equally rewarded and praised for their performances. Alderweireld also spoke that the team has gelled well under Pochettino.

“The most important thing is we have no heroes in this team. When one makes a mistake, the other one picks it up. We have a togetherness. We want to achieve something this season and I think you can see that on the pitch.”” He added.

Tottenham was expected to be registering a Europa spot by many Pundits. But since they are now third, Alderweireld believes the team has got what is needed to challenge the title. He also emphasized on keep improving the spot.

“There is confidence and self-belief – not arrogance – that we can beat everybody. We know that, if we don’t put the effort in, we are a normal team.”

Alderweireld has been in stellar form for the club, and has already made 31 appearances for the club across all competitions. The young Belgian was part of Southampton last season on a loan deal and it seems that he has learned a lot of stoutness and game-reading with the Saints.
