Tottenham will face an interesting January decision
The hype train of Tottenham starlet Kyle Walker-Peters is cranking up. The young fullback’s sterling performance against Barnsley in this week’s Carabao Cup clash only confirmed what Mauricio Pochettino already knew. Walker-Peters is too good to be third choice at any position. sbobet8888
Tottenham didn’t dominate their Championship opponents during their midweek matchup, but Walker-Peters’ play was a clear bright spot for his team. He played a nearly flawless match down the left flank. That performance, combined with his excellent debut at right back against Newcastle in the Premier League owner has allowed him to make a serious case for increased playing time.
The challenge for Walker-Peters is the talent ahead of him in Pochettino’s pecking order. On the right flank, he’s currently trapped behind Serge Aurier and Kieran Trippier. His chances of beating out the flashy Ivory Coast international in the near term are pretty slim. Surpassing the former Burnley star, on the other hand, does suddenly seem like a distinct possibility.
