Tottenham Hotspur fans are pleased for Kyle Walker-Peters excellent Southampton form

Southampton are top of the Premier League after a comfortable 2-0 win over Newcastle United at St Mary’s. 

Goals from Che Adams and Stuart Armstrong secured the win for the Saints, which has, remarkably, taken Ralph Hasenhuttl’s team top of the league. 

One of the key players for Southampton so far this season has been Kyle Walker-Peters, who joined the club from Tottenham Hotspur in the summer. 

Although not a part of the deal that saw Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg head to Spurs, the two did seem to happen side-by-side, with the England under-21 defender joining the Saints for a reported (The Sun) £12 million this summer.

That followed a loan spell at St Mary’s and plenty of Tottenham fans were sad to see Walker-Peters go. 

The versatile defender has plenty of promise but never quite managed to find form when he was given a chance in the Tottenham first-team. 

Now, plenty of Tottenham fans are wondering if the club should have stuck by Walker-Peters. 

The 23-year-old was exceptional against Newcastle, dangerous going forward, solid defensively, and even occasionally coming inside to provide a passing option in a style reminiscent of the great Phillip Lahm. 

Whilst Tottenham are happy with Hojbjerg and have Serge Aurier and new signing Matt Doherty battling for the right-back position, some can’t help but wonder if KWP deserved a better crack of the whip at Spurs.
