Kyle Naughton v Kyle Walker: Head to Head: How Swansea and Spurs right-backs compared: 20150208


Kyle Naughton produced a game-changing display for Swansea at the weekend, the sort which would have earned him more chances at Tottenham Hotspur.

The right-back delivered the cross for Ki-Sung Yeung to head home, to earn a share of the spoils in a 1-1 draw against Sunderland.

It was a display which compared favourably to the one Kyle Walker, the player he could not dislodge at Tottenham, put in during the North London derby, a game in which he still impressed.

Naughton's display outperformed Walker in several key areas, illustrating he is beginning to settle in already in south Wales.

The defender struggled to hold down a first team place at Spurs, but has an opportunity now to kick on and show he is capable of being a first choice right-back in the Premier League.

Gylfi Sigurdsson has flourished since quitting White Hart Lane for the Liberty Stadium, and the early signs regarding Naughton are positive, consistency is his next challenge.
