Walker backing untested Spurs youngster

Kyle Walker has called on Tottenham Hotspur’s youngsters to show what they’re made of for the club tonight against PAOK Salonika, with a new-look squad being chosen by Harry Redknapp for the Europa League match.

Yago Falque looks set to debut for Spurs, and youngsters Tom Carroll, Jake Livermore, Andros Townsend and Harry Kane are also hoping to feature in the starting line-up.

And Walker, who at 21-years-old has a point to prove at Tottenham himself, believes that despite the squad being somewhat inexperienced, they can silence the fanatical Greek fans.

“When you go to an away game it's important to quieten the crowd," he said.

"We have the players to do that. We just need to play the game we are taught and the rest will take care of itself."


Redknapp’s selections for the squad tonight may appear to reflect the manager prioritising the Barclays Premier League over Europe, but Walker believes that with the youngsters getting a chance to prove themselves, Redknapp still believes his squad can come away with a win tonight.

"We have a game on Sunday and Stoke on Tuesday. We have to use our squad wisely and the manager has trust in his players,” he said.

"We have to come here and do the business. We have come here to win. If we play to our ability then there is no reason why we can't get the result."

Tottenham will be particularly hoping to do well this weekend, with the north London side coming off a 5-1 defeat to Manchester City at White Hart Lane. And with a confident Liverpool in their sights, the club will be hoping to have minimal injuries from tonight’s match.
