It hasn't all been positive for Tottenham Hotspur so far this campaign.
Kyle Walker's poor form last season led to hope he could be replaced this time around for many Tottenham fans.
But the opposite has happened since Kieran Trippier's arrival at White Hart Lane. Indeed, Walker has improved and the summer signing hasn't impressed in north London.
Trippier could certainly still come good at Tottenham but, so far, it's safe to say he has disappointed.
Merely in terms of numbers, the 24-year-old could prove useful. But, in terms of both form and quality, Tottenham supporters have grown frustrated with the wide man.
The midfielder can arguably be forgiven after his breakthrough year last term but it's ironic that Spurs' only loss of the season came after a Bentaleb error against Manchester United.
With Eric Dier, Mousa Dembele and Dele Alli in form - and Ryan Mason waiting in the wings - Bentaleb faces a tough battle to win his place back.
