Despite being part of a Tottenham back line that shipped four goals against Leicester City, young defender Kyle Walker-Peters was one of the best players on the pitch on Sunday.
The 21-year-old was making his first start for Spurs since the opening day of the Premier League season, when he was named man of the match in a 2-0 win at Newcastle United.
He was even better against Leicester, at least in an attacking capacity, assisting both Erik Lamela goals as Tottenham came from 3-1 down to win 5-4 at Wembley.
The 21-year-old’s performance raises an important question concerning Spurs’ right-backs: should Tottenham consider selling Serge Aurier this summer?
The 25-year-old arrived from PSG last August and has struggled to cement a place in the starting line-up ahead of Kieran Trippier.
Perhaps he will take more than a few months to settle in England, but there have been some major concerns about his game: Aurier often flies into tackles in the penalty area and his crossing has been poor.
What’s more, Walker-Peters’ future at the club may be dependent on either Trippier or Aurier leaving this summer – if both stay, will Walker-Peters get a game next season?
I think Aurier should be given another season to prove himself in the Premier League. In the meantime, will Walker-Peters be sent out on loan? It’s unlikely he will sold given that he’s just agreed a new contract, according to the Standard.
