Why this player will make all the difference on his Spurs return

Tottenham Hotspur fans will be desperately craving some good news tomorrow night as their team take on Southampton in the Premier League.

A comfortable win will get the side back on track after a devastating loss to North London rivals Arsenal at the weekend.

However, Southampton will have likely named their new manager by tomorrow, so the players may go all out to impress the new boss.

Tottenham have some good news of their own though, as Kieran Trippier returns to the side after a groin injury.

While the England man has been far from his best this season, the performances of Serge Aurier and Ben Davies at the weekend showed how important it is for Poch to rotate his full backs.

Playing in the position, up and down the wing for 90 minutes, with three matches a week, it’s enough to burn anyone out.

Much more than this, an in form Kieran Trippier is heads and shoulders above Aurier in all aspects of his game.

Despite Serge having a good few games while we were dominating possession, when Tottenham come under pressure he often crumbles defensively.

He has a habit of diving in, giving away silly fouls, and leaving himself out of position.

Hopefully Kieran can get himself up to form similar to that in Russia last summer as quickly as possible.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. the criticisms of Aurier while valid I would also say for Kieran defensively when under pressure although going forward and his crossing and deadball delivery make him better. I feel full backs and defensive midfield are areas we should look to strengthen in
