Tottenham full-back Kyle Walker admitted “it doesn’t get much better than that” after his 30-yard strike settled the north London derby against Arsenal.
Rafael van der Vaart’s controversial first-half effort – he appeared to use his arm to bring the ball down – opened the scoring for Spurs before Aaron Ramsey equalised six minutes after the break.
Walker then scored with a superb strike which swerved at the last moment to beat Gunners keeper Wojciech Szczesny.
Walker told Sky Sports 1: “It doesn’t get much better than that. I just picked the ball up and hit it.
“I had one of them against Fulham for Aston Villa so I thought why not take a chance.
“I just thought why not have a go. If you don’t buy a lottery ticket you don’t win the lottery.
“Arsenal are a good team and we found it difficult at times but we dug deep and got the result that we wanted.”
