Kieran Trippier claims the Tottenham squad believe they can win every match

Tottenham WHL

Kieran Trippier looks set to play for Spurs against Monaco on Thursday.

Tottenham Hotspur defender Kieran Trippier has told the club's official website that the Spurs squad go in to every game believing they can win.

Trippier, 24, came up through the ranks at Manchester City before leaving the club to find first-team football at Burnley, initially on loan in 2011 before completing a permanent deal in 2012.

The right back showed what City were missing by enjoying a superb campaign with Burnley last season, and even though the Clarets suffered relegation back to the Championship, he made an instant return to the Premier League as Tottenham moved to sign him.

So far, Trippier has played just eight minutes of Premier League action this season, and has primarily been used as Kyle Walker's backup in the league - yet, in Europe, it's been a different story.

Trippier has played all five of Tottenham's Europa League games this season, giving Walker a rest during the busy weeks where Tottenham play domestic and European games.

Trippier is again expected to start for Spurs as they take on Monaco on Thursday night, with Mauricio Pochettino no doubt looking to keep up Tottenham's sensational start to the season.

With that in mind, Trippier has looked ahead to the Monaco game, and given Tottenham's form, the full back has told the club's official website that the squad currently believe they believe they can win before every match.

"Every game we go into we believe we can win the match and that’s no different on Thursday against Monaco," said Trippier. "We’ll make sure we’re ready for the game and hopefully we can win and top the group," he added.

Spurs have already qualified for the knockout stages of the competition, but a win at White Hart Lane will guarantee their place on top of Group J, so it's no wonder Trippier is looking for another victory.
