Tottenham Hotspur fans have been reacting on Twitter to Kyle Walker-Peters’ first half performance against AFC Bournemouth.

The young right-back came into Mauricio Pochettino’s starting line up for the Premier League match at Wembley and has certainly caught the eye.

The 21-year-old has had his say in each of Tottenham’s three goals in the first 45 minutes by playing the important pass to set up each of the goalscorers.

Firstly, he set up Christian Eriksen to open the scoring courtesy of the Dane’s deflected shot and then went on to tee up Heung-min Son.

His third assist of the afternoon came when he superbly played the ball back across the penalty area from out wide which gave Lucas Moura licence to treble our lead.

Many pundits were quick to jump on Walker-Peters after his early mistake in the Champions League tie against Barcelona helped the home side to take the lead, but performances of this ilk will certainly silence the doubters.

He is now the youngest player to record three assists in a Premier League match since Jermaine Pennant did in 2003.
