Top 10: Defenders of the 2012/13 Premier League season (6)

Published 3 Comments

6. Kyle Walker (Tottenham Hotspur)

Football News

Kyle Walker is practically the perfect modern-day full back. He brings pace and stamina into attack, but knows just when to fall back and defend. Tottenham were all about pace last season, with Gareth Bale and Aaron Lennon playing key roles in speeding up their attack. But, Kyle Walker has done just the same from defensive positions.

Walker is fast, strong, and more importantly made 32 clearances for his team in the past campaign. More impressive, however, are the 53 chances he's created for the north London side. 

His weakness lies in his rash tackles, but that will change with experience.
