Man City defender Walker rejects Haaland doubts after Spurs blank

Manchester City star Kyle Walker is eager for his team to show more cutting edge.

City had the majority of possession and shots against Tottenham in the Premier League on Sunday.

However, they were unable to score a goal in the game, losing 1-0 to a Harry Kane strike.

Post-game, Walker told the club website: "It's disappointing obviously. We've come here to pick up three points and get a result at this stadium like we've not had before. We move on now, move onto the next game and try to go on a run that we know we can do.

"It's difficult, when you are against five at the back and two holding, with three of them running in behind, it has to be about how much you go forward without conceding at the back, it's almost cat and mouse.

"If a few chances go in, like the Riyad [Mahrez] one, then the momentum could have gone our way. We could have definitely done better creating chances, not being negative.

"There's certain things we can do around the box to improve on, to be more clear cut. To create more of a clear cut action. Sometimes you need to have shots and have shots on target."

"It's a process. The manager demands so much and the way we play, it's unique. Erling has been fantastic, nobody said anything when he was scoring goals, but now we're questioning him," he continued on forward Erling Haaland.

"He's a fantastic player. This is the team we have got, this is the team we have. We will fight until the end as we always do."
