The lads gave themselves real hope when they fought back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 in Turin,securing two precious away goals, however after Son Heung-Min’s opener at Wembley, Argentine duo Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala struck twice in under three minutes to break Spurs hearts.

“We had a lot of chances in the first half and put in a great performance. It’s a difficult one to take,”:Trippier told BBC Radio 5 Live.

Trippier added: “Juventus changed their formation and they had a lot of the ball, we just need to settle down a little bit.The lads are gutted because of the way we started the game. It’s a tough one to take.
“We wanted to come out fast in the second half, but they killed the tempo out of the game.”
