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. May 17 - 7:50 AM

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 However, the 26-year-old was withdrawn with a little over 10 minutes remaining on Sunday and the medical team were seen inspecting the right wrist of Walker who appeared to be in some discomfort.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.

Kyle Walker is a doubt for Tottenham's match with Swansea after playing on with an injury in the Capital One Cup Final on Sunday.

Mauricio Pochettino will check on a number of players ahead of Wednesdays’ game with Kyle Walker being the biggest concern – Eric Dier could move across onto the right with Frederico Fazio coming into the centre. Ben Davies has a chance of facing his former employers although it would mean Danny Rose dropping to the bench but Michel Vorm is unlikely to trouble Hugo Lloris in goal and will have to be satisfied with a place on the bench having failed to start a single league game since his move from Swansea. Eric Lamela and Mousa Dembele were restricted to minutes from the sideline at Wembley so the pair will be hoping for a recall - Nacer Chadli and Andros Townsend are the two players most at risk.

Kyle Walker is a high risk to be rested on Sunday after missing nine months to injury.

Walker returned from injury just a few weeks ago and is now a risk to be rested due to not having full match fitness. After missing nine months, it would be incredible to see him play twice in 48 hours. Kyle Naughton will likely benefit and get the start, but his fantasy value is limited with Manchester United coming to town.

Tottenham's returning defender Kyle Walker is a bargain option for Week 18 and the foreseeable future.

Those of you playing the Yahoo fantasy game for the past few years will know that Walker usually ends the season as one of the top scoring (and most expensive) defenders thanks to his attacking exploits down the right flank combined with his all-action defensive displays. With Leicester on the schedule for Spurs this week you should be snapping Walker up at his current bargain price of £6.03million, with the right-back finally over that long-term abdominal injury.

Kyle Walker made his long awaited return for Tottenham on Thursday night in the Europa League but his presence in the starting eleven wasn’t enough to stop Besiktas edging out the away side to take top spot in group C of the Europa League.

Walker returned to his familiar right-back berth for the first time following almost nine months of injury hell – the England international had been suffering from an ongoing pelvic problem and finally went under the knife to cure the issue. After a number of weeks with the development side Mauricio Pochettino finally decided Walker was ready as the defender played over 75 minutes in the Atatürk Olympic Stadium. Spurs were able to call upon a number of players for their final group decider with Andros Townsend and Etienne Capoue returning following injury while Nacer Chadli had a rare 90 minute outing – Tottenham have qualified for the last 32 of the competition.

Kyle Walker is expected to join the under-21s in training this week while the England full-back is targeting a return to first team action by early December.

Walker last featured for Tottenham back in March after the defender finally gave in to a problematic pelvic issue which had been ongoing for a number of weeks prior. In early May Kyle Walker was still confident of making the squad to Brazil - despite his two month hiatus - but on medical advice England manager Roy Hodgson decided not to risk selecting the player and his focus shifted to getting fit for the 2014/15 campaign. Kyle Walker played 45 minutes during the pre-season before a decision was taken to undergo abdominal surgery – a move which would prolong his absence but one which would address any long-term pelvic issues. Walker will provide competition for the right-back slot - a position which has been filled by Kyle Naughton and Eric Dier with varying degrees of success.

Spurs and England full-back Kyle Walker has undergone "lower abdominal surgery" in an attempt to cure an ongoing pelvic problem.

The Tottenham defender last played competitively over five months ago and was said to be close to a return to first team action with new coach Mauricio Pochettino even confirming he would undergo a late fitness on the eve of this season’s opener at West Ham. However the club have now decided following further specialist assessment that Walker will have a surgical procedure to correct the issue with no timescale given on his return. With news that Eric Dier has withdrawn from the England Under-21 squad today due to injury Tottenham are now sweating on the fitness of their new signing with only Kyle Naughton available as a potential replacement.
