Manchester City will finish their United States tour on Saturday evening with a match against Tottenham Hotspur in Nashville, Tennessee.

Not only will this be a tough test against another Premier League title contender, but new City signing Kyle Walker will face the club he spent the majority of his career with. The England international talked about facing Spurs so soon after leaving them.

"It's going to be difficult (against Tottenham), I'm not going to lie. I spent a lot of years there, had special moments and the lads are great, the coaching staff is great and they helped me to get to where I am now.

"But it's a football match and I want to win, so if we can go there and pick up a victory that would be fantastic."

After moving clubs over the summer the first meeting was always going to be tough for Walker. However, after only two preseason games the English defender seems to come as advertised offering excellent pace and ball control on the right flank.

After a certain exchange of pleasantries in the warm up, Spurs players are now going to have to deal with the terrifying prospect of facing Kyle Walker on the right side of the pitch.
