Kyle Walker posts Twitter message after Tottenham win, hails teammate
By Amir Mir
Kyle Walker hailed Danny Rose for his goal on Twitter after Tottenham beat Burnley 2-1 at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side, who have not been beaten on home soil in the league this term, went a goal down when Ashley Barnes struck after 21 minutes.
But midfielder Dele Alli restored the lead six minutes later when he slotted home Walker’s low cross, before Rose found the back of the net midway through the second half.
However, prior to the winning goal substitute Moussa Sissoko was only given a yellow card for a high challenge, before the Frenchman set up his teammate who secured a valuable three points.
After the game Walker posted this message to supporters on his personal Twitter account.

Right-back Walker has been in top form this season and he has produced consistent performances for his side in their top four push.
The England international has played 20 Premier League and Champions League games, providing three assists and helping his side keep nine clean sheets in the process.
As a result Spurs remain in fifth place in the Premier League table on 33 points from 17 games, one point behind rivals Arsenal who are fourth and ten points behind leaders Chelsea.
Pochettino will be hoping his side can continue their winning run when they take on Southampton on Boxing Day, before a trip to Watford at the start of the new year.
