Tottenham fans are absolutely crucifying Kieran Trippier, despite the Englishman picking up an assist in the 2-0 win over Watford.
There was a subdued atmosphere around Wembley on Monday night as Mauricio Pochettino’s side cruised past Watford.
Whether it was the FA Cup defeat to Manchester United, the novelty of Wembley finally wearing off, or simply the end of season blues, both the players and the fans seemed like they weren’t really too fussed about the Monday night clash.
Nowhere was this lack of commitment more apparent than in defence, where Pochettino’s side quite frankly looked half asleep.
The game was won comfortably in the end thanks to Harry Kane firing in the second goal from a Trippier cross, but the visitors certainly had enough chances to make a game of it, due mainly to silly mistakes at the back from Spurs.
Trippier is taking plenty of stick for his display, after Richarlison had far too much space on several occasions.
The 27 year-old seems to be the first choice over Serge Aurier, but fans are not happy with his defending on Monday night, and some of the best Twitter reactions can be found below…
Got to be Lloris! Trippier put in some fine balls, and got the assist, but he was skinned numerous times, including by Holebas. He lost possession 24 times (next highest 17) and was regularly at fault for Watford's chances.

Too many defensive mistakes by Trip's for MOM, Lloris deserves it tonight, kept them at bay when called upon.

Thought Trippier was poor defensively, for me had to be Hugo or Jan , still no one was outstanding, an ugly 3 points but they all count!
