Tottenham Hotspur maintained their impressive 100% start to the new Premier League season on Monday evening, sweeping aside Manchester United to seal a 3-0 win at Old Trafford.
The Lilywhites performed spectacularly in the second half, scoring all three of their goals after the interval, and have increased the pressure on Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho – who seems to be suffering from third-season syndrome once again.
While United struggle to find their feet, Tottenham have continued their charge and optimism has increased as the Lilywhites look to potentially dethrone Manchester City from the summit of English football this season.
An important player during their rise has been full-back Kieran Trippier, who has entered the new campaign full of confidence after starring for England in their push to the World Cup semi-finals – scoring in the defeat to Croatia.
He has since transferred that form to club level, scoring a superb free-kick against Fulham last weekend, and put in another solid display in the victory over Manchester United.
After he posted a message on Twitter following the win, many fans took the opportunity to praise the Three Lions ace for his performance. We have assembled some of the best reactions below.
WELL PLAYED, TRIPPS 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼
