Kieran Trippier faces an every week battle to keep his place in the Tottenham Hotspur side due to the competition from new signing Serge Aurier.

His performance at the weekend against West Bromwich Albion was a mixed bag, with Spurs drawing the game 1-1.

Trippier set a personal best during the draw, creating seven chances in just one match.

This was more than he had managed in any Premier League game during his career for Tottenham or Burnley.

Trippier's creativity came from his crossing, which has made him such a danger for Spurs and has seen him link up effectively so often with Harry Kane.

But despite Trippier's creativity, his performance was still panned by Tottenham fans.

If anything the defender was too eager to cross, relying on it as opposed to taking players on.

His crossing made Spurs a bit too predictable, and Trippier simply does not possess the same dynamism former star Kyle Walker did.

Walker was an expert at getting to the byline and testing defences, and this extra option made Tottenham a lot more unpredictable as it opened up space for other players.

Spurs do not have dynamic wingers who can test defences, and they need a little more from Trippier despite his accuracy when it comes to delivering crosses into the box.
