Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to discuss Ryan Fredericks’ performance for West Ham against Liverpool on Monday night, after the English right-back put in an excellent shift to help his side snatch an unlikely point against the league leaders.
The 26-year-old, signed from Fulham in the summer, helped limit the Reds’ goalscoring chances, whilst also proving to be a good attacking outlet on the overlap – this was key, as it helped nullify Andrew Robertson’s usually dangerous impact going forward.
Fredericks is a fantastic modern-day full-back, who possesses an abundance of pace but is physical enough to deal with most wingers, and Tottenham fans were certainly made to sit up and take notice of their former youth player’s performance.

Spurs have a bit of an issue at right-back currently, with both Serge Aurier and Kieran Trippier struggling for form and Kyle Walker-Peters still relatively inexperienced, so they were keeping a very close eye on how their ex-starlet fared against Jurgen Klopp’s side.
In that respect, Fredericks’ fantastic performance prompted some Spurs fans on Twitter to call for their club to sign him…
Can’t believe I’m seeing some of the disrespect Ryan Fredericks is getting from Spurs fans. He’d be our best right back ??

We sold Ryan Fredericks and Adam Smith for nothing yet they’d be our best right backs now

Yes, a very good player indeed.
I was very sad to see him leave Spurs.

He is not better than Aurier. On par with KWP.

Still better than Trippier though ?

Fredricks is possibly worse than Trippier.
