Tottenham Hotspur defender Kyle Walker reflects on his first Premier League start since March.

Tottenham Hotspur defender Kyle Walker has said that he was pleased with his performance against Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday.

The England international right-back was featuring in his first Premier League game for nine months, having returned to competitive football only last week.

Walker played the entire match which ended in a 2-1 win for Spurs, and he was pleased with his performance.

“He (Jefferson Montero) is probably the quickest I have come against,” he told Spurs TV. “After nine months, you didn’t really need that. I thought I did all right against him, I kept up until the last minute.”

Walker did not have a great game as he was beaten a couple of times, but he was not bad either.

The 24-year-old won 39% of the duels and had 72% pass accuracy, while also picking up a yellow card.

There were one or two encouraging signs from Walker against Swansea, and one hopes that he is going to get better as the season progresses.
