Trips ticks all the boxes
29 December 2015|Tottenham Hotspur
Kieran Trippier’s first start in the Premier League for us couldn’t have gone much better.
The full-back defended solidly, delivered a stream of crosses from the right after constantly raiding forward in a new 3-4-2-1 system and then, crucially, provided the assist for Heung-Min Son’s dramatic late winner.
Kieran’s cross and Son’s backheel set-up scenes of great celebration in the away section at Vicarage Road as we ended 2015 with three wins on the trot to sit third in the Premier League.
“Watford have showed real spirit in previous games and made it hard for us when they had 10 men but we kept believing and believing that we could get that second goal, the belief is massive here and it’s no shock we scored that winner at the end,” said Kieran, who has started all our cup matches this season.

“I tried to put in as many crosses as I could for my team-mates. The first one came back out (for the winner), I got another opportunity and crossed to Sonny who did a clever flick - happy days!
“Sonny is a clever player, you see it say in, day out in training and there is no surprise he found that bit of skill to get the second goal.
“There is no better feeling to come out on top like that. The fans were fantastic all the way through and that second goal was for them.
“It was a great celebration all together at the end and that just shows how close everyone is at this club.”
