Walker-Peters insists he is ready to replace Rose

Tottenham’s Kyle Walker-Peters insists he is ready replace Danny Rose if his team-mate is sidelined.

The defender is yet to make an appearance for Spurs this season after a breakthrough campaign last year.

Rose pulled out of England’s Nations League games with Croatia and Spain with a groin injury.

Walker-Peters played in England Under-21s’ 7-0 romp against Andorra on Thursday, which booked their spot at Euro 2019, and is now eager to make an impact at Spurs.

He said: “Hopefully it’s not too bad for Dan. If the manager at Tottenham needs me to play on the left then I’m ready to do a good job.

“The gaffer knows what he’s doing. I have faith in what he has planned for me and when he gives me my opportunities I have to continue to take them.

“Poch (Mauricio Pochettino) is good. He spoke to me at the beginning of the season which is good. He makes it quite clear that if you want to go and have a word with him, feel free to and question him.”
