Manchester City defender Kyle Walker has said that the team fears no one and that they have the ability to overcome every other side in the Premier League.
Walker joined City from Tottenham over the summer. At present, the team are at the top of the table after scoring 21 goals in their first six games.
Talking this week about his team’s start to the season, Walker said, “If we keep doing the basics right, and keep performing at the level we’re performing at, hopefully we will be a force that won’t be stopped. We’ve got a lot of game winners and fantastic talents. It is just about consistency.”
He went on to say that he doesn’t think they will encounter “many opponents that will cause us many problems”.
He also paid tribute to Sergio Aguero who has scored seven goals in all competitions this season including six in the Premier League. Walker said that Aguero “is a nightmare” to play against but that having him on the same team “is a big bonus” as he is “a quality player”.
In regards to his decision to leave Spurs, Walker said that City boss Guardiola’s love of attacking fullbacks was one of main reasons for his departure.
“I think that was one of the big reasons for signing here was that the gaffer likes to play the way I like to play with attacking full-backs. The standard of full-backs is very high as well. He is improving me as a player. I think it is going to push all three of us. Dani [Danilo] can play left or right, and Mendy and I are occupying each side. It is a good dressing room to be around. We all expect high standards from each other.”
