Toby Alderweireld believes Tottenham’s emphatic win over Monaco proves they have the depth of squad to handle the chaotic Christmas period. Press Association Mauricio Pochettino made seven changes for Spurs’ final Europa League group game but his fringe players stepped up as they outplayed Monaco in a 4-1 victory. Erik Lamela grabbed the headlines with a first-half hat-trick but midfielder Tom Carroll capped an assured display with a late goal while 18-year-old Joshua Onomah was particularly lively on his first start for the club. Tottenham host Newcastle on Sunday, looking to close a three-point gap on the Barclays Premier League’s top four, with Southampton, Norwich and Watford all to come before the end of the month. “We need our squad,” Alderweireld said. “We are going to play a lot of games over the Christmas period. If someone gets injured or suspended, we know another guy can take his place. (On Thursday night) they showed they are ready for it. “I think we made it comfortable. We started very well and the guys who are not playing all the time, they wanted to prove something and I think they did (on Thursday night). “It is important for the confidence so we can take this result into Sunday. It is nice to be top of the group. We did our job very well in the Europa League up until now.” Onomah was perhaps the most exciting newcomer on show at White Hart Lane and the attacking midfielder may be given further chances to impress while Mousa Dembele struggles with illness and Nacer Chadli regains sharpness following two months out with injury. Born and raised in Enfield, Onomah is the latest academy graduate to come through at Spurs, but Alderweireld was not surprised by the youngster’s display. “We train with him every day,” Alderweireld said. “He is quite strong, he is quick, he is a good footballer. I think he has a good future. “He did not look to play safe because he is confident. He shows it every day in training. It was a good opportunity for him to show his quality.” Alderweireld joined Tottenham for around £11million in the summer and the 26-year-old has been one of the club’s star performers, forming a strong partnership with fellow Belgian Jan Vertonghen. Only Manchester United have a better defensive record than Spurs in the league so far and Chadli, another of Alderweireld’s compatriots, has hailed his team-mate’s contribution. “Toby is a great guy. I’ve known him now for five years,” Chadli said before Thursday’s win. “He has always been a good defender. He has had a very good start to the season. It has been very positive how he’s played. “He has been helped by the team-mates. Everyone is very good with each other and that has helped the guy settle in. “Toby is quiet but he’s always looking to help his team-mates. Since I’ve known him, he’s always been like this. I think it’s a great signing for us.”
But we’re not here to debate about robots. We’re here to look at the patch notes, which includes an interesting new area on the map called Tilted Town. Harvesting and building will not be allowed in this area, and several weapons have been unvaulted for this area of the map only.We also have yet another sniper added to the game.What to expect in Tilted TownA Rift Zone, which first affected Dusty Divot, turning it into Dusty Depot, has now affected Neo Tilted. Neo Tilted is no more and this area on the map is now called Tilted Town. According to Epic games, “A Rift Zone has turned this location into what it was many years in the past: a Wild West settlement.”The biggest thing you need to know about Tilted Town is building and harvesting are not allowed in this area.There are also a handful of weapons that spawn in this area of the map:Double Barrel Shotgun (Epic and Legendary variants)Six Shooter (Uncommon, Rare, and Epic variants)Hunting Rifle (Uncommon and Rare variants)Infantry Rifle (Common variant)Automatic Sniper Rifle added “Keep your opponents pinned down at long range with this full-auto sniper rifle.”Epic Games has added yet another Sniper Rifle into Fortnite. In fact, there are almost two new snipers added to the game if you consider that the Hunting Rifle has been unvaulted for Tilted Town. We now have the Storm Scout, Automatic, Semi-Auto, Bolt-Action and the Heavy snipers all in the game.The Automatic Sniper Rifle is available in Rare, Epic, and Legendary variants. it can be found from Floor, Chest, Vending Machines, Supply Drops, and Loot Carriers.

It will be called Aresenal and it’s a Solo team type.”Work your way through all of the weapons, starting with the higher rarities and ending with the lower rarities. The first player to get an elimination with the final weapon wins! Infinite ammo is on, and players will drop materials when they are eliminated.” Epic Games released its v10.00 Content Update patch notes for Fortnite Tuesday morning, and fans likely won’t be too happy with the results.Not that anything within the patch notes is bad, but rather what’s not in the patch notes. After several days of complaints about the BRUTE being overpowered, Epic Games did not nerf the controversial Season 10 weapon. The BRUTE remains in the game, and is as powerful as when it first arrived.
