Tottenham fans react on Twitter as Walker returns to the line-up v West Ham
By Harvey Byrne
Tottenham fans have posted their delight on Twitter as star full-back Kyle Walker returned to the starting line-up against West Ham on Friday evening.
The 26-year-old right-back was restricted to a two minute substitute appearance against fierce rivals Arsenal last weekend and after also starting on the bench against Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-finals earlier in the month there has been some doubts in regards to his future.
However, those doubts have now been cast aside with the England international starting against the Hammers at the London Stadium.
Many Tottenham fans have reacted with joy to the news with the supporters wanting the club to keep hold of their star players, including Walker.
Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Walker is now set to play in his 32nd league match of the campaign, which has seen him return six assists.
His ability to race up and down the right flank has played a huge part in Tottenham’s success this season and the full-back will be looking to put in another fine display against West Ham as they look to keep the ground with top of the league Chelsea.
