Tottenham Hotspur Vs. Arsenal, 2011 Premier League: Kyle Walker Stunner Gives Tottenham 2-1 Lead

If you weren't watching Aston Villa for the second half of last season, you missed a curious scoring threat that the midlanders offered - ludicrous long-range shots from an on-loan right back named Kyle Walker. Walker is now back at Tottenham Hotspur, and he's just showed off what he can do after it looked like an attack had totally broken down. Following a giveaway by Arsenal goalscorer Aaron Ramsey, Sandro steamed down the left and cut back - poorly - for Luka Modric. The midfielder's shot was blocked, and the ball popped out to Walker 40 yards out.

One touch got the fullback into shooting position. The next slammed the ball home, a swerving, sliding effort that wrong-footed Wojciech Szczesny and went buzzing into the back of his net. It was a stunning strike, and that's made it 2-1 Tottenham. Gareth Bale nearly doubles the lead shortly thereafter, but it's suddenly all Spurs at White Hart Lane again. Gervinho is yanked for Andrei Arshavin.
