Kieran Trippier has seen himself reform over the last few months. He’s gone from fighting with Serge Aurier to be Spurs’ number one right-back to an England hero who scores free-kicks from 30-yards and he showed the Lillywhites what he’s capable of on Saturday.

Trippier admitted that there’s nothing really in his new party piece other than immense practice. The 27-year-old, who’s been nicknamed The Bury Beckham for his ability on set pieces, claims that it’s just practice, practice and practice as to why he’s got so good over a dead ball. It’s got to the point that he’s now overtaken Christian Eriksen as the club’s free-kick taker and with good reason considering how he buried one against Fulham.
Next up for Trippier will be to carry on scoring free-kicks and setting up teammates from set-pieces now he’s shown that he’s got the trait in his locker. Loads of fans are expecting him to score a few more this season after he scored his first Tottenham goal since he bagged against Watford in 2016 in the Premier League. His recent strikes against Fulham and Croatia from 30 yards have shown the supporters what he really can do and it won’t be a shock to see him do it again in future.

Model pro, and, I suspect, also a family man.
