Loads of Tottenham fans have been giving their verdict on the defeat to Liverpool, and they are absolutely fuming with Kieran Trippier.
As if often the case with modern full backs, Tottenham’s Trippier tends to split opinion amongst fans because he is so good going forward but prone to mistakes at the other end.
The flying right back’s overlapping runs down the wing, crossing and set pieces are all magnificent, but he was extremely poor against Liverpool, giving the ball away in dangerous areas on multiple occasions.
The 27 year-old wasn’t the only one who put in a poor performance on Saturday, but he is the only one with a £23m international waiting to claim his spot, and fans are calling for Serge Aurier to take over.
Trippier completed just 67 per cent of his passes against Liverpool, made no key passes, no accurate crosses, and not a single tackle or interception, according to Whoscored.com.

World Cup fooled people into thinking Trippier was anything more than bang average

It’s a pattern, absolutely. He can’t defend on his own against wingers with pace. Sane proved that last year exceptionally. He’s looked great when he has the support of 3 centre halves that can cover his side more efficiently. Feel bad for KWP

He’s not good enough

I’ve seen Kieran Trippier have a lot of bad defensive games for Spurs – the Leroy Sane saga stands out for one – but this might just be the worst. His decision-making and one-on-one defending have been abysmal.

Trips is not good enough. A sweet right foot does not make you a good full back.

Imagine the stick Aurier would get if he put in the performance Trippier has put in today #thfc

Rather see aurier than Trippier at least aurier tries to get back

Thoughts on today:
– Vorm is genuinely awful, we’re lucky to have Lloris
– We missed Dele massively
– I know he scored, but I lose brain cells watching Lamela and some of the decisions he makes
– Trippier is bang average, can’t defend or stay in position, Aurier >
