BBC Sport pundit Garth Crooks has picked unsung Tottenham Hotspur star Kyle Walker in his Premier League team of the week after the latest round of action.

Spurs made light work of a struggling Swansea City side at White Hart Lane, prevailing 5-0 in a one-sided affair.

Star striker Harry Kane looked back to his best in the rout, scoring twice in the process, but Crooks has overlooked last season’s top Premier League goalscorer.

The attacker’s England international team-mate Kyle Walker makes the grade though after another industrious display by the forward-thinking right-back.

The offensive intent of both of Spurs’ full-backs is a key component in Mauricio Pochettino’s style of play at White Hart Lane, with the former Aston Villa loanee one of the best in the Premier League at getting on the front foot.

Walker dealt with the threat of lightning-fast Swansea winger Jefferson Montero well on Saturday, while he was always available to receive possession when Tottenham were going forward.
