Tottenham Hotspur fans believe that Mauricio Pochettino clearly should have taken Kieran Tripper off against Manchester City at the weekend.

Spurs were battered by City at the weekend, with Trippier struggling badly during the contest.

The right-back simply could not get to grips with City’s attacking movement, as Spurs conceded four times at the Etihad Stadium.

Tottenham fans now feel that Pochettino is putting too much faith in Trippier, and have called for him to be dropped in favour of Serge Aurier.

Trippier has endured a difficult time of Spurs of late, with Pochettino’s side struggling for results.

Tottenham have won just three of their last eight Premeir League matches to slide down the table.

Spurs are now in seventh place in the top tier standings, and are having to play catch up in the race for a Champions League qualification spot.

Tottenham are next in action against Trippier’s former club Burnley, and it remains to be seen whether Pochettino will keep picking the England international.
