Trippier admits it’s been difficult

Kieran Trippier may not have seen a lot of Premier League action since his move to Spurs, but the right-back is remaining focused and keen to impress when given a chance.

Trippier made his first Premier League start in a Spurs shirt in the 2-1 win at Watford and impressed with some dangerous crosses into the box. Whilst he’s been first choice in the Europa League, he’s had to play second fiddle to Kyle Walker when it comes to the Premier League.

The former Burnley player admits that the move south has not been easy but has been made welcome by all at the club to help him settle into life at N17 as he looks to provide competition to Kyle Walker.

“I’m delighted to get my first start,” Trippier told the Guardian.

“It was important, we came here to get the three points, which we did. Playing against 10 men isn’t easy but we got the three points.”

“I’m not playing every week but I try to do well every day in training and impress. The manager believed in me today to play and give a good performance, and the most important thing is we got the three points and it’s pushed us further up the table.

“It was a bit difficult at the start, moving down here, but all the lads, the staff, the people around made me feel so welcome and I’m adapting quickly to the style of play of the players here and what the manager needs of me. All I can do is give my best when I’m called upon.”

He added: “I just want to get forward as much as I can and get as many balls into the box for H [Harry Kane] and whoever’s on the end of it. I was happy to get an assist today but most importantly we got the points because it’s not an easy place to come to, Watford.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. When we signed Trippier, I was surprised at the number of people who thought that he was going to instantly going to take over from Walker. And then when he played in the EL, he really didn't look as if he even belonged in a PL team. I was very impressed with him at Watford, and though Walker still gets my vote, he does look like he belongs.

    The same applies to Davies. Watching him in last seasons EL, you could almost guarantee that he would make the opponents RW, look like MOTM. His recent appearances have been a revelation, and bearing in mind that Rose was dire at Watford, his improvement is even more welcome.

    I have a tendency to make long term predictions which have been known to wrong, but when I am critical of one of our player's and they make a fool of me, I love it
