Fans have pointed out that a social media update from the England full-back appears very similar to one from the Arsenal defender

Tottenham full-back Kyle Walker has been accused of stealing a Twitter update from team-mate Georges N'Koudou and Arsenal's Hector Bellerin.

The England international posted a funny tweet containing a photo of his free-kick taking pose next to the popular internet meme cat photo known as 'Catinho', only to be accused of plagiarism.

Walker's "Perfecting some free kicks today, but who's got better technique? Retweet for me, like for soccer-cat" tweet looked very familiar to one N'Koudou posted in December, and fans were quick to point that out.

Left-winger N'Koudou has made just five Premier League starts since signing from Marseille for £11 million, but at least as the backing of the fans on Twitter!

Internet detectives then went one step further, unearthing an even earlier Twitter update featuring a Catinho comparison - involving rival full-back Hector Bellerin from Arsenal, with the comment: "The best right-back in the league done this months ago mate."

Spurs team-mate Dele Alli also jumped to N'Koudou's defence, referring to Walker using the snake emoji after the France Under-21 international pointed out the injustice.
