A selection of Tottenham fans were quick to criticise Kieran Trippier for his performance in his side's 1-0 home defeat against Manchester City.

The defender was at fault for City's early goal after he failed to clear a long ball from goalkeeper Ederson, allowing Raheem Sterling to run in behind and feed Riyad Mahrez a tap in at the near post. 

Trippier could hardly blame the poor condition of the pitch following his defensive mistake with fans calling him a 'liability' in defence.


Following an impressive World Cup with England, Trippier has had a mixed start to his Premier League season, scoring one goal and providing three assists. 

He has been the first choice right back for Tottenham almost all season with Ivory Coast international Serge Aurier on the bench, but had a poor game on Monday with some fans questioning his defensive capabilities.

Tottenham fans were quick to lay the blame on Twitter, with one even suggesting winger Son Heung-min would be more suited in the right back position.

Some fans seemed to suggest that Trippier was not the only wing back that was struggling on the night. 

Ben Davies and Benjamin Mendy also made some questionable decisions in their defensive thirds, perhaps not helped by the poor condition of the pitch.
