Cape Town - Manchester City defender Kyle Walker is determined to hand Arsenal a defeat in the League Cup final on Sunday, due to his love for Tottenham Hotspur.

The former Spurs right-back signed for City in July 2017, but after spending eight years at White Hart Lane he still sees the Gunners as a bitter rival.

"Spurs is a club which belongs to my heart and to get one over on their bitter rivals, and mine for a long time, would be a fantastic feeling," Walker told Sky Sports.

"But it's a game of football and anything can happen in 90 minutes. They've made some excellent signings in January which we need to be careful of, and we need to just say: 'Let the best team win'."

The England international went on to talk about his move to the Etihad Stadium and explained that the main attraction was the chance to win trophies, which he was unable to do at Spurs.

"For me, I want to win stuff," Walker added. "I hate losing, and to be with Tottenham for the number of years I was and not pick up anything was disappointing.

"We were very close for two seasons, with Leicester City and Chelsea, but we just fell short and I don't want that to happen here at City."

Kick-off is at 18:30 (SA time).
