Tottenham fans react to Trippier performance

A look at Tottenham fan reaction to Kieran Trippier's display against Monaco.

Kieran Trippier's performance against Monaco brought about a mixed display from fans.

The full-back played all 90 minutes of the 1-1 draw, and showed promising signs going forward.

It was his defensive play which let him down, appearing positionally suspect, and slow to react for Stephan El Shaarawy's second half equaliser.

One of the positives to Trippier's display was the fact he won five aerial duels, more than any other Tottenham player, yet for the important one he could not get close enough to the Monaco forward to prevent their goal.

Trippier completed 83 per cent of his passes, and was one of just two players to deliver an accurate cross - along with Christian Eriksen - yet this one pinpoint delivery was one of six attempts.

Defensively he did not win a single tackle, while fellow full-back Danny Rose won two. Trippier made nine clearances - this figure was only bettered by Jan Vertonghen with 10.

Spurs fans had expressed their concern with Trippier's positioning before the goal was conceded, also commenting via Twitter that his attacking play was positive. Here are a few comments from while the scoreline was 1-0...
