It’s time for Spurs to give this defender his chance to shine

Spurs have begun to find their feet this season and capped off another good week with a resounding win in the Champions League in midweek courtesy of another Harry Kane hat trick.

Mauricio Pochettino must be delighted with the way his team are playing, and our landlord here at the Tavern thinks that if Spurs can sort their Wembley woes out at ‘home’, then they could still make a challenge for the title.

One player though he feels has been harshly looked after so far is young defender Kyle Walker-Peters. The 20-year-old made a flying start to the season after making his full Premier League debut, but has been largely ignored since.

He has the ability to slot in on either side of the defence or at wing back depending on how Spurs set up, and deserves his chance in the team. Kieran Trippier does not appear to be hitting the form he showed last season, while new signing Serge Aurier has already seen red and looks a liability at times.

Walker-Peters looked a steady head when he made his debut on the opening day of the campaign and Pochettino would be wise to thrust his young defender into the spotlight again.

With Spurs hitting good form in general, Walker-Peters would benefit greatly from being part of a winning team and getting more minutes under his belt, especially if the club secure Champions League progression early and he gets his chance in Europe.
