“He has a lot to improve” – A lot of Tottenham Hotspur fans have reacted to Mauricio Pochettino’s comments on Kyle Walker-Peters.
The 22-year-old right-back is the only option for Pochettino at the moment, and on Saturday, he faced Raheem Sterling.
In the second half though Walker-Peters was much improved and managed to contain Sterling.
Tottenham’s manager is waiting for Juan Foyth to return from injury and Serge Aurier to regain match fitness – so, for now, he only has Walker-Peters available, and he is demanding to see improvementfrom the young right-back.
These Spurs fans agree with their manager.

Needs to hit the gym that’s for sure.

He needs to hit the gym and bulk up.

Many Tottenham fans believe that Walker-Peters needs to hit the gym – as he is too slight in their opinion.
He certainly needs to learn his position and how to mark people, and not let players like Sterling have half the pitch to themselves, while he drifts into the middle for some reason.

Defensively inept, position wise.

He was perplexed by City’s press. Had lots of problems bringing the ball out from the back.

Other Spurs fans are worried about the 22-year-old’s positioning – and they believe he needs to improve that part of his game.
He has a lot to improve but he’s getting better game after game

Getting better game by game

He'll only get that from game time

However, some Tottenham fans think that Walker-Peters is getting better, but he has a long way to go before he is good enough to play regularly for them.
