Toby Alderweireld – Tottenham Hotspurs/ Belgium -83
Belgian wall Toby Alderweireld has been the central piece of Tottenham’s finest performance in years, as the 27-year old held the Spurs defense as they conceded only 35 goals in 38 matches. After joining the London club in July 2015 from Atletico Madrid, Toby Alderweireld has enjoyed a long, consistent run of games for Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
Featuring in all 38 Premier League matches this season with 4 goals in his name, Alderweireld is easily the season’s best defender in English football. His magnificent season at White Hart Lane earned him a spot in the Premier League PFA Team of the Year season 2015/16 and UEFA Europa League Squad of the Season 2015/16. Toby was also named the Spurs Player of the Year 2016.
