Walker: It doesn’t get much better than that


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.”
