Everton winger Theo Walcott has revealed to Football.London what he does not like about Tottenham Hotspur’s ‘reconstructed White Hart Lane’.

Walcott played at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday afternoon, as he started for Everton in their Premier League game against Tottenham on the final day of the season.

The 30-year-old former Arsenal star played well and also scored in the 69th minute, as the match ended in a 2-2 draw.

Walcott - who has been on the books of Everton since January 2018 when he joined from Arsenal for a transfer fee reported by Sky Sports to be worth £20 million - has given his take on White Hart Lane.

Walcott told Football.London: “I’m not gonna lie, it’s a fantastic stadium. A fantastic arena. They’re obviously in the final of the Champions League and have done fantastically well.

“It’s a great place to play football, it really is, and they have worked really hard. It’s taken a long time and I know it has been a lot of stress for everyone behind closed doors, but it has paid off when you see it.

“But I do feel the walk from the coach to the dressing room was just a little bit too long — because I was walking past Tottenham fans! But no, you have to give everybody involved a lot of credit because they have done a great job."
