Posted on 27 June 2012  - 11:15

Kyle Walker is the runaway choice of fans to take the right-back role in our all-time Premier League Spurs team.

Xtra - all-time PL Spurs team - left-back vote

The 22-year-old enjoyed a stunning breakthrough campaign last season where he started most games in the squad, won his first senior England caps and was then named PFA Young Player of the Year.

He polled almost 70% of the votes in Tuesday's poll, beating Stephen Carr (23.76%) into second and Vedran Corluka (3.74%) in third.

Now we turn our attention to left-back as we put together a team from 20 seasons of the Premier League, which kicked-off in 1992-93.

Christian Ziege

Here are the candidates...

Justin Edinburgh - 1990-2000 - Took over from Pat van der Hauwe and although there was competition - namely from Clive Wilson - basically held down the position for most of the 1990s. FA Cup winner in 1991, League Cup in 1999, Justin made 274 appearances for us, 213 in league football.

Mauricio Taricco - 1999-2004 - Played both right and left-back after joining us from Ipswich and featured 130 times in the Premier League.

Christian Ziege - 2001-2004 - Employed in left wing-back role under Glenn Hoddle, injury restricted Christian to 47 appearances in the Premier League, but there was no doubting the German international's class, underlined by a magnificent free-kick against Arsenal in December, 2002.

Young-Pyo Lee - 2005-2008 - A consistent performer in the 2005-06 season as we fought for fourth place in the Premier League, the South Korea international eventually played 70 times for us in the Premier League.

Benoit Assou-Ekotto - 2006-present - Super-consistent left-back who has got better and better, injury hampered his early career at Spurs but he's been a regular for a while now with 29, 30, 30 and 34 starts in the Premier League in the last four seasons. Started all 12 games in our Champions League campaign of 2010-11.

We're putting together a team in a 4-4-2 system and we're using the poll facility on our official fan page on Facebook - CLICK HERE - to vote.

We will hold eight votes in total - goalkeeper, right and left full-back, two centre-backs, right and left midfield, two central midfielders and two strikers.

We'll run daily updates giving you the contenders for each position and the result of that position the next day. We'll also have reminders on Facebook and @SpursOfficial on Twitter.
