Kieran Trippier is determined to impress against Qarabag this evening.

The right-back has lined-up in all five of our cup matches so far this season and is set to start again with Kyle Walker remaining back at base as we take on the Azerbaijan champions on Europa League Matchday Five in Baku (6pm UK, 10pm local).

Victory at the Tofiq Bahramov Stadium will secure a place in the knockout stage of the competition with one game remaining.

But a tough test is expected against a Qarabag side that impressed despite defeat at the Lane in September and have yet to lose at home in Europe in five games this season.

"I try to take every opportunity I get," said Kieran in Baku. "It's been a fantastic experience for me to play in the Europa League and hopefully I'll put in a good performance and stay in the team.

"I was impressed with Qarabag at White Hart Lane. I thought they passed the ball well, were good in possession and they have a lot of good players. They looked to play on the counter-attack at White Hart Lane and we'll have to be careful on Thursday night.

"We take every game seriously and every competition seriously. We go out to win every game and this is no different.

"It's a long trip for us but there is a great feeling in the squad and we're determined to go out and get the three points."
