Tottenham Hotspur full-back Kyle Walker believes that it was good for his side to have managed to get back on track with a win against Aston Villa.

The win was the Lilywhites' first in four matches in all competitions after having lost against West Ham, drawn against Arsenal in the Premier League and succumbed to a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Borussia Dortmund in the Europa League.

The 2-0 win against the relegation battlers therefore was crucial and the 25-year-old insists that it will help rejuvenate their season and get them back up and running.

Speaking about the win against the Villans, Walker told his club's official website: "It’s a massive win.

“We lost at West Ham, drew against Arsenal, Dortmund are a good side and it was time to get back on track and we did that well."


Speaking about the weakness areas that he noticed during the course of the match, the former Sheffield United player said that his team perhaps looked a bit sloppy towards the end, but the fact that they managed to secure all three points is the main thing.

“As a team I thought we set our stall out well. If there is anything negative perhaps we got a bit sloppy near the end but we came here to get the three points and did that.

“Hopefully we can kick-start the season again and keep going.

“It’s down to us, every game and we know we have enough quality in the dressing room, home or away.”

The north Londoners now face the daunting task of overturning a 3-0 deficit against Borrusia Dortmund in the Europa League round of 16 return leg at White Hart Lane.
