Liverpool continued their fine display this term under manager Jurgen Klopp.
They defeated Tottenham 2-1 in the EFL Cup to advance to the last eight. Daniel Sturridge grabbed a brace during the keenly contested game at Anfield. Vincent Janssen scored Spurs’ only goal but they could not get the equalizer to extend the game beyond regular time.
Both coaches, Klopp and Mauricio Pochettino played young players during the clash. Georges-Kevin N’Koudou was decent until he slipped and allowed Sturridge get the opening goal. Josh Onomah got a chance to play but he struggled against the Reds. Harry Winks showed better quality in central midfield, winning the praise of his coach. Pochettino said the 20-year old player was a “very important player for the future,” and that he played well. Liverpool’s midfield was quite physical but Winks managed it well. Winks’ passing accuracy was 91.2 percent – the highest of all players that started the duel.
Daniel Sturridge showed his quality despite a tough time the past few weeks. He was criticized for his poor showing during the goalless draw with Manchester United. He was unused when Liverpool defeated West Bromwich Albion 2-1. However, during the clash with Spurs, Sturridge rose to the occasion to shame critics of his work rate and team effort in games. He converted Georginio Wijnaldum’s through ball to get his second goal. After the game, a satisfied Klopp said: Read more »
Tottenham Hotspur player Kieran Trippler has been consistently linked with a move away from White Hart Lane all summer, alongside other players.
Reports say the former Burnley defender has met with the management of Spurs to complain bitterly about his lack of playing chances, as well as the numerous speculations over his future with the North London outfit.
The 25-year old wasn’t even on the bench when Spurs played a 1-1 draw with Everton in the first round of games. Coach Mauricio Pochettino didn’t consider him in the 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace and the 1-1 draw against Liverpool. Tottenham have had decent players in full back position in the past couple of seasons. Kyle Walker and DeAndre Yedlin used to contest for space with Trippler in the first team.
Walker is the first choice for the position, and Yedlin has moved on to Newcastle, so Trippler wanted to know what was next for him this term. Last season, Trippler got time playing in the Europa League and domestic cup games. He featured in 19 games, getting 90 minutes in European games. His last league appearance was back in early March, so he wants to know his fate before the transfer window closes. Read more »
The 25 year old English footballer who joined Spurs in 2015 last summer from Burnley has become quite a renowned member of the squad of Mauricio Pochettino.
He has made close to 6 appearances in the League in his 1st season though he played regularly in the Europa League Campaign for Tottenham. He has indeed provided high competition as far the England international Kyle Walker is concerned. Walker is all set to begin performing at Euro 2016 and Trippier seems to be the happiest for the former defender for Sheffield United.
Trippier recently stated that it was not easy to compete with Kyle, who has been such a strong and brilliant player. Although they are good friends, they still want to play with one another. By doing so, it will only help them improve and turn out to be excellent players. Trippier is almost nearing his peak years and has to put in a lot of effort if he wants to displace Kyle Walker. All he has to do is continue to work harder in training more frequently than before. Read more »

The Turf Moor club tried to broker a loan deal for Yedlin as part of Kieran Trippier’s transfer to White Hart Lane last June, but saw the ex-Seattle Sounders star head to Sunderland on a season-long agreement instead. The Clarets have been back on the trail of the 22-year-old defender in recent weeks as Sean Dyche sizes up options to strengthen his rearguard for a return to the Premier League.
Yedlin has made 20 starts on loan at Sunderland with 19 of those coming under manager Sam Allardyce, who may want to keep him on. The World Cup star will have hoped to have done enough to force his way into the Spurs reckoning for next season, but faces tough competition from Trippier and Kyle Walker for the right-back slot.

Kieran Trippier had a very impressive season with Burnley as he performed in 38 league matches and was also named in the Championship PFA Team of the Year for a 2nd successive season.
With only 24 years of age, Trippier has his entire career lying ahead of him and Tottenham Hotspur took full advantage of this as the Premier League club signed the young defender on a 5 year long deal for a transfer fee of €3.5 million.
Following his exit from Burnley, Trippier thanked the fans of the club as he said: “Everyone, from the gaffer to the fans themselves, have supported me for four years and I will never forget that. It is devastating to leave Burnley, but I want to play in the Premier League and be the best player I can be. I’d like to think I’ve given everything to the club. I always gave 110%.”
The 24 years old defender who has been going through outstanding seasons was sold to Tottenham Hotspur for a price tag which is much lower than what he is actually worth and this is due to a clause in the contract of the player which allowed Manchester City on receiving 40% of any profit from the former player.

Burnley defender Kieran Trippier says that the club must keep hold of striker Danny Ings at any cost at least until the end of the campaign.
The 22-year-old is one of the hot properties in the Premier League after having scored seven goals in just 19 matches this campaign. The English striker is also capable of playing in the hole. This versatility has made him the target for clubs like Newcastle United.Trippier’s form was a major reason behind only getting promoted to the Premier League last season.
After struggling with the form for most of the first half of the season, Burnley manager Sean Dyche once again decided to revert back to the attacking formation withTrippier at the forefront of chance creation. Read more »
Burnley right back Kieran Trippier was a major factor in the club getting promoted to the Premier League.
Despite being a defender, his attacking runs made him the best creator of chances in the Championship last season. He has had limited impact in the Premier League. This is widely seen as a result of Nigel Pearson holding his defenders in order to prevent conceding goals. This would be a major problem given the opposition’s quality in the Premier League. However, it has also resulted in Burnley managing less than a goal per game.
One of the inspirations forTrippier is Southampton defenderNathaniel Clyne. Clyne broke the notion of players from newly promoted teams being unable to feature for the England national team. He has been a major reason in the success of Southampton this season and it has resulted in a call up to the England team. He recently made his debut in the Euro 2016 qualifying match against Slovenia. At just 24 years of age,Trippier is just approaching the peak of his career. He feels that he can use the progress made byClyne as an inspiration going forward. Trippier has featured in 16 league matches this season.
“He deserves it. He’s been brilliant this year and last year. I used to watch him a lot last season. He’s a great right-back and I can learn off Nathaniel because he’s played a lot of games in the Premier League.I watched him a lot when he was at Palace and now he’s stepped up to Southampton and done brilliantly. I’m delighted for him but of course everyone wants to play for your country and I’m no different. There’s no rush. I’ll just keep focusing on my performances and see where it takes me,” said the 24-year-old after the recent 1-0 win over Southampton.
The manager of Burnley FC, Sean Dyche was appointed as the coach of the English club in October of 2012 and ever since he was promoted into this new position in the team things have been going impressively well for Dyche as he was named as the Championship manager of the month of September. This was back when Burnley was still performing in the Championship League.
The season reached its end with Dyche guiding Burnley to the Premier League but now that they are fighting in the top tier league of England things have started to become increasingly difficult for the newly promoted side.
Kieran Trippier is the undisputed right-back of Burnley as he made 41 league appearances for his club in the last season and the English defender has been featured in all 3 opening matches of the season. Trippier has been in the club ever since Sean Dyche was appointed as the coach of the team and the defender praised all the work that Dyche has been doing for the past few years.
The 23 year old right-back of Burnley FC, Kieran Trippier told reporters: “It is his one to one management skills, everyone respects and loves him. The gaffer is a brilliant coach and great guy to work with. We have also got a really good togetherness and team spirit and that comes down him.
“He has got it all under control. We were written off last year early doors and he made us believe we could surprise everybody. But if we have a good first six months again, this time in the Premier League, who knows what can happen. We have got nothing to lose and just want to do our very best.
The 3 opening matches of the Premier League season for Burnley has seen them facing off against: Chelsea, Swansea City and Manchester United having only been able to secure 1 point so far. They are currently located at the bottom of the standings but Trippier believes that by having Sean Dyche in charge of the team they should be able to maintain themselves in the Premier League for another season and avoid the bottom relegation zone.
