Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Trippier display v Arsenal

By Will Butcher

Tottenham fans believe Kieran Trippier’s performance levels were affected by nervousness during Spurs’ comfortable win against Arsenal.

The 26-year-old was given a surprise start in Spurs’ starting line-up to face north London enemies Arsenal, as Kyle Walker dropped to the bench instead.

However, the former Burnley right-back was in inspired form coming into the game but failed to replicate that during the north London derby as Spurs secured a comfortable 2-0 win.

Dele Alli gave Mauricio Pochettino’s side the lead from close range as he reacted to a loose ball in the Gunners penalty area, while Harry Kane won and scored a penalty just two minutes later.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

This season, Trippier has made just 19 appearances in all competitions this season as he continues to remain Walker’s understudy.

It remains to be seen who will be picked to play either at right-back or wing-back in the next few days, as Spurs travel the short distance across London to face West Ham at the London Stadium.
