Can Tottenham star make this fresh opportunity count?
This time he hopes the opportunity will not be ripped away from him after helping Tottenham to a win.
Two years ago Walker-Peters stood in for Spurs at right-back away at Newcastle and earned a man-of-the-match award.
He then found himself down to third choice in the pecking order within a week as Kieran Trippier returned from injury and Spurs signed Serge Aurier.
Now Walker-Peters is in a far stronger position than he was then.
Trippier has been sold, and Walker-Peters looks to have overtaken Aurier in the pecking order, for now.
Unlike two years ago, the transfer window closed before this season began.
Walker-Peters has possession of the right-back spot, and he is better equipped to hold onto it.
Now 22, there is no need to Tottenham to hold him back.
Not when Liverpool trust Trent Alexander-Arnold, 20, and Manchester United have made Aaron Wan-Bissaka, 21, first choice.
Two years ago it was a false dawn for Walker-Peters. This time he has to make the opportunity count, but Tottenham need to be bold and ensure he gets a proper run in the side and a fair shot to become a big success.
