​Tottenham's Alderweireld admits wake-up call from West Ham defeat

Toby Alderweireld accepts the 3-2 loss to West Ham after being 2-0 ahead was a wake-up call for Tottenham.

"We were not flying or anything in our heads, but I think it's a good reality check that you still need to work very hard, even if you're 2-0 up, to get results."

"You have to keep the level up because if you drop it a little bit you see what happens. It's a good thing to learn.

"Of course we'd love to have won, but we don't have to be too dramatic about it. Next time we have to do better, and we focus on Saturday."
