Manchester City fans have been hailing Kyle Walker following his performance against Paris Saint Germain, with a fan branding him the ‘best right back in world football’.

The reigning Premier League champions secured their place in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 as group winners following a stunning 2-1 win over PSG at the Etihad Stadium.

It was looking like it wouldn’t be City’s night. Kylian Mbappe scored five minutes into the second half to give Mauricio Pochettino’s men the lead completely against the run of play.

But Mbappe’s early second-half strike was cancelled out by yet another Etihad goal for Raheem Sterling, and a well-worked move that saw Gabriel Jesus put Manchester City into a 2-1 lead – a lead that ultimately secured the three points.

While the likes Bernardo Silva, Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus may have stole the limelight in this game, Wednesday clash was yet another example of why Walker is one Man City’s most important player.

The 31-year-old, who was given a player rating of 7/10 by the Manchester Evening News, dealt well with the counter-attacks threat from the likes of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

He used his recovery pace well to force Mbappe into rushing a shot at the end of the first half and then again in the second to nick the ball off the Frenchman’s toes.
