We'll use United frustration to our benefit - Toby
11 December 2016|Tottenham Hotspur
Toby Alderweireld wants the team to turn their ‘frustration and anger’ at the loss at Old Trafford into positive energy as we quickly return to Premier League action against Hull City on Wednesday night.
The central defender - back for his first start since returning from injury sustained on October 18 - spoke about ‘the details’ proving decisive as United ran out 1-0 winners on Sunday.
In an even game, there were two key moments. United capitalised on us losing possession to break and score what turned out to be the winner on 29 minutes and Victor Wanyama headed our best chance wide 10 minutes into the second half.

“Everyone is gutted, everyone is sad because we felt we could get at least a point here, so that’s frustrating,” said Toby, who had a battle royale alongside Jan Vertonghen up against Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
“We have to put that frustration and anger and use it in the right way, we can’t change this, so we have to use it in the right way and try to get three points at home on Wednesday night.”
Meanwhile, on a personal note, Toby was happy to complete the 90 minutes. “I feel very good, fit and happy to get the 90 minutes and I felt I was strong enough to do what I wanted to do until the end, so I’m happy with that.”
