Alderweireld hails Spurs team spirit for Everton victory

Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld hailed the team spirit shown for victory over Everton last night.

Alderweireld had failed to feature in the first three games since the Premier League resumed in June.

But the 31-year-old said every player on the pitch was vital in securing the three points and gave particular praise to his centre-back partner Eric Dier.

"I'm a small piece of the puzzle and I'm happy to contribute," he told Tottenham's official website. "We need everyone in the team to get good results, like we showed today. Eric [Dier] is doing very well.

"We have a big squad and everyone has to be ready to play when needed. We have a lot of games coming up in a short space of time, so we need everyone."
