​Tottenham reveal Alderweireld out until early New Year

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino says defender Toby Alderweireld will be out until February with a hamstring injury.

"We cannot change the reality. The reality is that he is injured and cannot play until February," Pochettino said ahead of Wednesday's clash with Brighton.

"With him or without him we win and we lose.

"The manager always wants all the players fit like Victor Wanyama or Danny Rose and Erik Lamela before.

"You miss the players who are not fit but football is a collective sport about the team not individuals.

"Some players have more influence on the team. But we have squad enough and players who can play."
