Pep Guardiola believes Kyle Walker could be available for the visit of Chelsea this weekend despite limping off at The Emirates.
The City full-back was replaced with around 20 minutes remaining on Thursday evening having seen his side secure three-points following a dominant and scintillating first half performance which blew the hosts away. Bernardo, David Silva and Leroy Sane were all on the scoresheet, and three better goals in 45 minutes, you will struggle to find. The victory opened a 16-point gap at the top of the table meaning City could win the title in April – the earliest in Premier League history. However, the night ended on a slightly sour note, when Walker was forced to the sidelines in obvious discomfort, although Pep was quick to allay any serious concerns. "It was a problem at half-time," Guardiola said post-match. "He was going to play for five minutes and after that he kept going for longer. He had a problem with his calf and back. That’s why he was substituted. I don’t think he’s injured." Mar 3 - 5:54 AM

In terms of defensive recommendations, Nik expects Kyle Walker to hit the ground running (fast) in Week 1.

£50million. It's a heavy price tag for a defender who makes at least one defensive mistake per game, but Walker was the best right-back in the Premier League last season and his pace will add a whole new dimension to Manchester City's attack. The England man thrived on the competition provided by Kieran Tripper's arrival at Spurs and he'll know he needs to raise his game to another level at the Etihad with Danilo waiting in the wings. Expect a fast start against Brighton.

Manchester City have made Kyle Walker the most expensive defender in the history of soccer in a £50 million move.

Let this sink in for a second: Walker has broken David Luiz's record move to PSG and also becomes the most expensive English player ever in a deal that could rise to £53 million with add-ons. The 27-year-old fills Manchester City's biggest hole in defense after letting Bacary Sagna and Pablo Zabaleta leave on free transfers and missing out on Brazilian right-back Dani Alves. Said the former Spurs star: "I am thrilled to be signing for City and can’t wait to get started. Pep Guardiola is one of the most respected managers in the world and I feel he can help me take my game to a new level."

It looks like Kyle Walker's much-discussed move to Manchester City is done with the exception of the administrative details and the England right back will move to the Etihad for £50m.

After losing out on the free transfer of Dani Alves to a massive salary offer from PSG, Manchester City have quickly moved to plan B and signed Kyle Walker from Tottenham. With Bacary Sagna and Pablo Zabaleta both having been allowed to leave, Manchester City needed a refresh at right back and the arrival of Kyle Walker should more than make up for the twin departures. While Manchester City are undoubtedly better for the move, Kyle Walker's productivity is likely to take something of a dip as Pep Guardiola's full backs aren't as prolific as their counterparts at Spurs.

Kyle Walker’s proposed move to Manchester City could drag on into next week as Tottenham stand firm on their £50 million valuation.

News broke in May that the England international wanted to leave Spurs following a falling out with manager Mauricio Pochettino. The pair clashed when Walker was left on the bench for the north London derby [April] while he was regularly rotated with Kieran Trippier during the latter part of the season. Pochettino is said to have concerns over the full-backs fitness and feels he is unable to play in two high profile games in a week. However, Tottenham have no need to sell, and chairman Daniel Levy is not prepared to agree a cut-price deal with Walker tied to the club until 2021. The news comes on the back of reports that Dani Alves has agreed a two-year deal at the Etihad, but his arrival will not be a simple case of one or the other, with Pep Guardiola still very keen to land his prime target.

Manchester City is expected to open talks for Tottenham defender Kyle Walker this week.

Reports suggest that Spurs are looking for close to £50 million for the right back, but Manchester City is hoping to broker a move closer to £40 million. The club has a desperate need for a right-back with Bacary Sagna and Pablo Zabaleta both leaving on free transfers, and Walker is one of their top choice to fill the position. The 27-year-old is said to be bemused by his current platoon situation with Kieran Trippier, which included being left out of the North London derby.

Tottenham face a crisis at right back for their match with Leicester Thursday night, as both Kyle Walker and Kieran Trippier have been ruled out.

While the finale at White Hart Lane ended with their fourteenth straight home win, it came at a price as Walker has picked up an ankle injury while Kieran Trippier is recovering from a concussion he sustained in the win over Manchester United. Tottenham's final match of the season comes just three days later, so the status of both players will be in doubt until we hear an update from Mauricio Pochettino before the Hull match. Against the Foxes, it may be Eric Dier deputizing, who has played the position a handful of times before. That would afford a chance to field Dier, Victor Wanyama and Mousa Dembele, when usually one of the trio is the odd man out of Pochettino's XI.

Kyle Walker has played down injury fears after he was substituted during the 2-1 win over Southampton.

The Tottenham full-back had been a slight doubt heading into the game due to an ankle problem, but Walker was cleared after coming through the final training session unscathed. However, the 26-year-old was withdrawn with a little over 10 minutes remaining on Sunday and the medical team were seen inspecting the right wrist of Walker who appeared to be in some discomfort. But, Pochettino was quick to play down any suggestion of a serious injury: "My decision was not for that [an injury]," he said post-match. "We saw when he was out he had a problem with his thumb. But I don't believe it's a big thing." The player himself then posted an update via his personal Twitter account to allay any concerns: ‘Thanks for all the messages, I'm ok!! Looking forward to joining up with England’. The Three Lions face Germany in Dortmund on Wednesday evening.

Kyle Walker was at the center of attention as Tottenham Hotspur clawed back from two goals down to draw 2-2 at Manchester City on Saturday.

Despite a pair of blunders by Hugo Lloris that resulted in Spurs trailing 2-0 with a little over a half-an-hour remaining, the central figure of the match will go down as Kyle Walker. While Walker supplied a superb right-wing cross on Dele Alli's emphatic header to cut the deficit in half, the defender was lucky to have escaped a red card moments before substitute Son Heung-Min completed the comeback on 77 minutes. Just a minute before Spurs leveled the match, Walker shoved Raheem Sterling off balance prior to the City man's 1v1 strike on Lloris. As if the missed call wasn't enough action, Spurs dodged an additional bullet when later City substitute Gabriel Jesus's headed goal was flagged offside. The nervy draw leaves Tottenham in second, six points behind Chelsea.

After both picked up their fifth yellow cards of the season in last night's win over Southampton, Tottenham defenders Kyle Walker and Jan Vertonghen will be suspended for the New Year's Day match against Watford.

It is a bit of a mess on the back line for Spurs as the calendar flips to 2017. Not only will two regular starters be missing for sure, Toby Alderweireld, who was absent last night with an illness, is also a question mark at this time for the clash with the Hornets. Presumably, Kieran Trippier and Kevin Wimmer could deputize for Walker and Vertonghen respectively, while Eric Dier could provide further cover if Alderweireld is unavailable. One of the better defenses in the league, fantasy managers who own the likes of Hugo Lloris or Danny Rose may want to temper expectations for Week 20.

Kyle Walker had to exit Tottenham's match against Liverpool during the first half because of an illness.

Walker did not look right from the start and had a rough time trying to contain the runs of Philippe Coutinho. He was removed in the 27th minute and replaced by Vincent Janssen, Janssen causes Dele Alli to drop into a deeper midfield role with Eric Dier covering at right back. With the international break coming up, Walker should be feeling better in time for Week 4.

Kyle Walker is doing his best to fend off Kieran Trippier for the right back spot, and his production is showing up on the stat sheet, as he is the early league leader in winning tackles.

It may only be two weeks, but Walker has shown improvement over last season. He is also inside the top ten of the league leaderboard for intercepting passes. Kieran Trippier is still the hands-down better fantasy producer when on the pitch, but there is no denying Walker is a more physical presence for any opposition to deal with. Leicester are next up for Spurs, so the onus of containing Riyad Mahrez will be the top priority for all of Tottenham's defenders.

Kyle Walker was responsible for an own goal and it proves the only score of the contest as Tottenham lost their opener to Manchester United, 1-0.

Spurs were unlucky to come away empty here. In a game with limited chances, Walker's mistake in trying to fend off Wayne Rooney squeaked it's way past Michel Vorm in the 22nd minute for the lone goal of the day. Perhaps this opens the door for Kieran Trippier to get the right back job. Christian Eriksen was sharp and the defense was noticeably tighter in the middle with the addition of Toby ALderweireld. It would have been nice to get a point from the effort but it is a positive sign for the season if they can add a couple more pieces before the transfer window closes.

Tottenham fell to Peterborough United 3-2, as they fielded an XI full of youth players.

Kyle Walker was the only senior to make the XI and the results were somewhat poor, especially in defense. They would concede the first two goals of the match with the latter coming in the first few minutes of the second half. Spurs would respond with two goals of their own by Shayon Harrison and Ismail Azzaoui. The defense failed to tighten though, and Peterborough would find a game-winner late on. The fact that Walker was the only big name on the teamsheet may be because he needs more pitch time to prove he is over last season's injury woes or perhaps it is a sign that Kieran Trippier is already being viewed as the right back of choice for Mauricio Pochettino.

Kyle Walker will miss the rest of the season.

Walker will miss out after picking up a foot injury at Burnley; the full-back is still wearing a protective boot and swelling is delaying further tests. Vlad Chiriches is likely to retain his place but DeAndre Yedlin is an option although the January signing is yet to feature for the first team. Jan Vertonghen [illness] remains a doubt with Ben Davies or Younes Kaboul available if required.
