Following the high of last summer’s World Cup where he was one of England’s stand out performers in their journey to the semi-final in Russia, Kieran Trippier has had a season which he will soon want to put behind him.

The right-back has struggled with form and injuries, which have seen him become a focus of frustration from some sections of the Spurs support.

Going forward to join in with the attack in the final third has always been Trippier’s strongest aspect of his game with his final ball delivery into the box behind arguably the best of all the full-backs at the club.  However, in defence he has been a liability at times.

Trippier was at fault for Arsenal’s goal at Wembley in the North London derby and he was left red-faced in a defensive mix-up with Hugo Lloris at Stamford Bridge.

The former Burnley man has been strongly linked with a move to Italy in recent weeks, which has led to some Spurs fans taking to social media to share their thoughts on the prospect of Trippier potentially leaving North London this summer (The Sun).

 

Fan Reaction

Opinion

Even if Trippier was to depart, it would leave Serge Aurier as the only senior right-back at the club and he has also shown that he can be inconsistent with his displays.  Should Trippier be sold, fans will be hoping that Mauricio Pochettino is given the funds to recruit a first-choice replacement.

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. I don’t think Trips is as bad as some of the detractors state above. Has he had the best of seasons…no. However, I would take him over Aurier. So, for me, Trips should stay. If we go out and buy someone to replace him….we have no idea whether he will be OK in the PL or not.
