Kyle Walker showed he is back to his best against Norwich

Norwich City

The Tottenham Hotspur right-back impressed on Tuesday evening.

 

Tottenham Hotspur defeated Norwich City 3-0 this week with Dele Alli scoring another great goal and Harry Kane continuing his fine form with a brace.

But for all the attacking quality on show from Mauricio Pochettino’s side, Spurs also impressed at the opposite end of the field, with right-back Kyle Walker in particular having a very solid game.

The England international has well and truly got over his injury problems, making 22 appearances for Tottenham so far this season, and on this evidence he is back to his very best.

The 25-year-old has responded brilliantly to the competition brought on by the summer signing of Kieran Trippier, and against Norwich he performed well throughout.

As you can see from the statistics above, Walker had a good passing accuracy of 75 per cent and the same when it came to tackle accuracy, while he won three interceptions, seven duels and one aerial battle.

The Tottenham full-back was dispossessed just once all evening and he recovered the ball a very impressive 11 times.

A solid performance if ever there was one, Walker showed that it is not only goal-scorers who deserve credit in this Spurs side.
