Trippier relishing away days
31 March 2017|Tottenham Hotspur
Kieran Trippier is confident we can take our excellent home form onto the road as we prepare for two away games in quick succession this week.
Saturday’s trip to Burnley is followed up with a visit to Swansea City on Wednesday night (April 5), with crucial Premier League points at stake following the conclusion of the international break.
We’ve enjoyed a tremendous winning streak at White Hart Lane in recent months, winning the last four games in a row in all competitions, meaning we’re still undefeated in N17 this season.
Right-back Kieran, who started our 6-0 FA Cup quarter-final win over Millwall before coming on as a late substitute for Kyle Walker in the 2-1 triumph over Southampton last time out, believes we’re more than capable of reproducing that kind of form at Turf Moor and the Liberty Stadium over the next few days.
“We’ve done very well in the past few games and we can all take that confidence on into the next matches,” said the 26-year-old, who returns to former club Burnley as a Spurs player for the first time this weekend.
“We know it will be a difficult game at Burnley but we just need to keep our performance levels high like we have been doing and then after that we’ll look at Swansea.
“We’re just taking it game-by-game. Everybody is relaxed and everybody’s raring to go because obviously we’re back playing Premier League football now.
“Burnley is next and hopefully we can go there with a great attitude and get the three points.”
