Walker Peters has been really impressive. So calm and always looks a potent outlet

@maxrushden watching this game I’m more and more convinced that Walker-Peters is better than Aurier, but that Mourinho would be more likely to trust Aurier in a like-for-like role. Do you think Jose would sell or recall KWP for next season? #footballweekly

Walker Peters has already proven he’s so much better than Valery, which really begs the question why he’s not been starting before #saintsfc

Walker peters doesn’t like running on, but he’s ok with the ball

Correction Walker-Peters has done more in 15 minutes than Valery done in 45 😊😊

Walker Peters been great since coming on

He’s not taking on a player already on a yellow, preferring to use the safer back pass. He’s found his level.

Walker-Peters has looked solid this second half since coming on for Valery, I’m sure he’s looking to continue this and make it into the starting 11 for these final games

Future at Tottenham Hotspur?
Walker-Peters is a very good right-back, but he is 23 years of age now and has made only a handful of appearances for the Tottenham senior side.
Given that Tottenham head coach Jose Mourinho decided to send him out on loan in the January transfer window, it is hard to see the Englishman establish himself in the first team next season.
Perhaps a permanent move away from Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the summer transfer window would be sensible for the youngster.
