Ian Wright has praised Tottenham's flying duo Kyle Walker and Danny Rose.

Former Arsenal striker and current pundit Ian Wright has told The Sun Goals Podcast that he thinks Kyle Walker and Danny Rose have been 'absolutely flying' under Mauricio Pochettino.

Spurs beat Manchester United 3-0 on Sunday afternoon, taking them back to within seven points of league leaders Leicester City, although their bid for the Premier League title looks like falling short.

Manager Pochettino has earned great praise throughout the season, and even if the title is now unlikely, Spurs will be playing in the Champions League again next term - a huge achievement given that they were deemed outsiders for the top four in pre-season.

Whilst players like Hugo Lloris, Toby Alderweireld, Eric Dier, Mousa Dembele, Dele Alli and Harry Kane have stolen much of the limelight with their performances this season, two of Tottenham's more unsung heroes have been full backs Kyle Walker and Danny Rose.

Right back Walker and left back Rose are well in contention for England's Euro 2016 side this summer, and they have now been given the praise they deserve from Ian Wright.

The former Arsenal striker and current pundit Wright told The Sun Goals Podcast that both players are 'absolutely flying' under Pochettino, and noted that they are performing on a consistent basis due to their adept backups Kieran Trippier and Ben Davies. 

"I've been talking about Kyle Walker and Danny Rose, and he's got them absolutely flying," said Wright. "They are flying, the pair of them. You've got Davies and Trippier who can come in and do very good jobs. Those players are performing," he added.
