Tottenham Hotspur were starring down the barrel yesterday at the Hawthorns at 1-0 down to West Brom, but a late Dele Alli goal salvaged a point for the North London side.

Despite most of the travelling faithful viewing the fixture as two points lost given Mauricio Pochettino’s side dominance in the first half, there is a bigger problem in the eyes of the Spurs fans.

Key defender Toby Alderweireld was stretchered off in the second half with what looked like a serious knee injury, after clashing with team-mate Jan Vertonghen as the side looked to defend a Baggies cross.

The Belgium international has been the cornerstone of a Tottenham side that has only conceded four goals in eight Premier League games this season and is undoubtedly one of the team’s most-important players.

Alderweireld now appears to be facing a prolonged stint on the sidelines and will certainly miss the Londoners’ visit to face Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

The former Southampton loanee’s importance to the White Hart Lane side is showcased in just how worried the club’s fans are after his injury.

Here are the best tweets from the Spurs supporters following Alderweireld’s blow.
