Spurs fans heap praise on incredible Trippier performances

Tottenham fans are absolutely loving Kieran Trippier’s World Cup showing, as the England wing back has been one of the summer’s standout performers.

At the start of last season, fans were split over who should take the helm at right back in North London.

Serge Aurier was an exciting new signing, with bags of pace and power to go with his hefty £23m price tag. He also had experience playing on huge stages like Champions League knockout games, something Trippier didn’t have.

The former PSG man was tipped by most fans to take over from Trippier, although Pochettino’s style typically requires two full backs to rotate throughout the season anyway, due to the sheer amount of work they put in bombing down the wing.

There can’t be too many fans backing Aurier for the starting spot now though, as Trippier has been simply sensational in both of England’s World Cup wins.

The 27 year-old has played at right wing back in front of a back three, something Pochettino has himself experimented with on plenty of occasions.

The more advanced position seems to be getting the best out of the ex-Burnley man, as only one player in the entire tournament had more key passes than him after two rounds of matches – Belgium playmaker Kevin De Bruyne.

Fans are heaping praise on their flying full back, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
