Tottenham fans mock Kyle Walker as his mistake leads to shock Man City defeat

Former Tottenham Hotspur defender Kyle Walker was partly at fault for the goal Manchester City conceded in their shock 1-0 defeat against Wigan Athletic in the fifth round of the FA Cup at the DW Stadium on Monday night, and Spurs fans were quick to mock the 27-year-old who left last summer.

The Citizens were the overwhelming favourites to progress to a quarter-final tie at home to Southampton as they faced the League One high-flyers, but a red card for Fabian Delph before half-time gave the Latics a chance.

Then 10 minutes from the end, Walker allowed a ball down the wing to go under his foot and he was then beaten in a foot race by Will Grigg, who finished brilliantly past Ederson in the City goal to take the hosts through.

Pep Guardiola’s side’s exit will certainly boost Spurs’ chances of winning the competition, although they must beat Rochdale at Wembley in their fifth round replay before they come up against either Sheffield Wednesday or Swansea City in the quarters.

Tottenham supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on Walker’s display, and while one said “Kyle Walker may have just won Tottenham a trophy and he doesn’t play for us anymore”, another simply said “what was Walker thinking”.

Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
