The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern learnt a lot about their side during their game with Real Madrid. The Lilywhites were in simply sensational form, and whilst their European opponents went into the game as favourites, the final scoreline said otherwise. Tottenham were on a rampage, and they deserved their 3-1 win.
So many of Tottenham’s key players were in fine form, and that has been a big topic of discussion in the pub over the last few days. One player that has received a lot of attention in particular of Kieran Trippier. He was expected to lose his place following the arrival of Serge Aurier, but he has come on leaps and bounds this term – and Aurier wasn’t able to feature from the start against Real Madrid as a result.
This has left fans wondering if he should retain his place this weekend against Crystal Palace, and it’s fair to say that most supporters are certainly in his corner. According to a recent poll ran by our landlord, a whopping 84% of Tottenham fans would like to see Trippier start this weekend, with the Englishman clearly impressing.
It’s no less than he deserves of course. His attacking game, in particular, has really improved this term, which when combined with his stellar defensive work places him in a tier above so many of Europe’s other full-backs. Aurier will struggle to get into the team at this rate.
