Walker was part of City's 3-0 defeat of Arsenal last night.
And he says the busy schedule was something to be embraced.
“In terms of training for me I always prefer playing matches," Walker said. “We have a shorter break between matches and more games is good.
“I think it's only right we finish the season and we have the Champions League also to look forward to.
“We have a 2-1 lead over Real Madrid to take into the second leg of the last 16 and then the incentive of a mini tournament so its going to be exciting times."
