Tottenham Hotspur started 2017 with a bang, beating Watford 4-1 at Vicarage Road on Sunday to take the North London club into the Premier League top four.

Mauricio Pochettino sent his side out with a three-man defence, with Kieran Tripper filling in at right wing-back for the suspended Kyle Walker.

The former Burnley man has had to bide his time since moving to White Hart Lane, with it unfortunate that England’s first-choice right-back is ahead of him in the pecking order.

However, Trippier took his opportunity against Watford to impress Pochettino and the travelling support.

The forward-thinking defender provided assists for both of Harry Kane’s first-half goals and put in a mature performance both on the front foot and defensively.

Trippier’s quality is a testament to the strength in depth in the Tottenham squad currently and the Spurs fans were quick to acknowledge the hard-working full-back following the win at Vicarage Road – here are the best tweets.
