Walker: “I’m now playing with smile on my face”

Kyle Walker attempts a cross during Manchester City’s clash with Brighton

Manchester City right full-back, Kyle Walker has revealed that he is now ‘playing with a big smile on his face.’

The England international has also made a strong disclosure by suggesting that he is also enjoying his football once again.

Walker made his competitive debut for the Mancunians in a 2-0 win against Brighton & Hove Albion at the Amex Stadium.

Meanwhile, City inflicted a 2-0 defeat on the lowly Brighton side in a David and Goliath clash on Saturday evening.

The Mancunians found themselves in a clash of that status as they battled newly promoted Brighton in Saturday’s late kick-off.

Brighton were, however, on their own part happy to make their long-awaited Premier League debut since they came into existence.

The Mancunians, however, left it a little bit late as they edged the David and Goliath clash on Saturday evening.

City talisman and striker, Sergio Agüero was on hand to hit the first goal in the 70th minute of the game.

But Lewis Dunk gave the Citizens the second goal and the win after scoring an own goal on 75 minutes.

City have now won their last seven opening games in the EPL, the best current run in the competition.

Aguero has also hit the net six times in seven opening-day outings in the Premier League for the club.

Meanwhile, the Amex Stadium has become the 56th different ground to play host to a Premier League encounter.

After failing to pen a fresh deal at Tottenham Hotspur, Walker moved to the Etihad Stadium for £50m this summer.

Walker plays first competitive match for City

The Englishman finally played his first-ever competitive match for the Citizens in Saturday’s late kickoff in the Premier League.

And the 27-year-old has made a strong claim that he is now ‘enjoying his football once again’ after joining City.

“We needed the win and it was good to get off to a good start, so we are happy.

“I am enjoying working with the club, the lads have been so welcoming and I am enjoying my football now.

“It is better to play with a smile on your face,” Walker told BT Sport.

Walker featured in 33 of Tottenham’s 38 Premier League outings during the 2016/17 season with the Lilywhites finishing as runners-up.
