Tottenham fans took to Twitter to laud sublime Trippier after City showing

Tottenham fans will still be getting over what happened last night. The Lilywhites won their biggest game of the season so far as they overcame Manchester City 1-0 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium thanks to a Heung-Min Son goal and a Hugo Lloris penalty save. However, everyone played their part on the night, including Kieran Trippier.

The ex-Burnley full-back has spent every game he’s featured in this season chasing his World Cup form from last summer, and largely it’s been to no avail. The defender was one of the players of the tournament last summer, yet in a Spurs shirt, it just hasn’t happened for him, that was up until last night. The full-back was at his very best against City, and his performance deserves recognition.

Trippier was up against Raheem Sterling. The City man is one of the sharpest players in Europe at the moment, he’s one of the favourites to win the PFA player of the season in the Premier League and his goal tally is better than some #9’s. It certainly wasn’t easy for him last night, though, as Trippier kept him at arm’s length all game to help the Lilywhites record a 1-0 win that they’ll take to Manchester next Wednesday, where Trippier will have to be at his very best yet again.

The Lilywhites loved Trippier’s efforts last night and will be desperate for him to star yet again when they travel to The Etihad in seven days time.
