Graham Roberts claims Tottenham ace is top-class (not Kane)
By Dominic Toner
Graham Roberts has hailed Tottenham defender Kyle Walker as “top-class” after his performance against West Brom.
The 26-year-old played the full 90 minutes as Spurs recorded a comfortable 4-0 home win against the Baggies in the Premier League, which moved them up to second in the table.
Harry Kane continued his impressive goalscoring form with a superb hat-trick, while Gareth McAuley netted an unfortunate own goal for the visitors.
Walker had a direct hand in the third goal of the game as his cross was converted by in-form striker Kane.
Ex-Spurs player Roberts has highlighted the quality of Walker after yet another strong display for the north London club.

“Kyle Walker running out of words for the way you are playing top-class mate,” Roberts wrote on his personal Twitter account.

Walker has been an ever-present in Mauricio Pochettino’s side this season and featured in 20 of the 21 Premier League games, missing only the Watford match as he served a one-game suspension.
The defender has excelled in the right wing-back position and his team-mate Danny Rose has done the same on the left.
He has now registered five assists this season and is proving to be a great attacking threat for the side.
Walker is regarded as one of the best full-backs in the Premier League and is proving this campaign why that is the case.
