Tottenham fans slate Trippier after Wolves horror show

Tottenham fans slate Trippier after Wolves horror show

Tottenham were lucky enough to scrape a 3-2 win over Wolves earlier, even though they were cruising at 3-0 up after Harry Kane scored the club’s 3rd on 61 minutes. After the game, football.london journalist, Alasdair Gold took to Twitter with his player ratings and the fans were quick to question Kieran Trippier’s 6/10 rating.

Tottenham fans everywhere would have been having babies after Juan Foyth gave away the second penalty of the game, which Raul Jimenez converted to see Wolves make it 3-2 with just over ten minutes to play. The Lilywhites did hold on for all three points, but it would have been so much easier had Kieran Trippier been on his best form and hadn’t been so quick to shoot himself and his teammates in the foot at Molineux.

For the first penalty that Foyth gave away, Trippier could have made it so much easier for the young Argentine as instead of taking the safe option and clearing his lines, England;s World Cup hero decided to try and slip the ball through Leo Bonatini’s legs, leading to the Brazilian striker pinching the ball and feeding Jimenez, who won the penalty. Other than that, the ex-Burnley man looked shaky at the back and was just poor all-round as Wolves got so close to claiming a famous point.

The Lilywhites have been quick to slate Trippier and won’t let his shocking display go unnoticed.
