According to a recent report by Football.London, Tottenham Hotspur will assess the extent of the groin injury which Kieran Trippier sustained during the match against Crystal Palace on Saturday. The English right-back went down with a groin problem and was subbed in the 24th minute at Selhurst Park.
Spurs are yet to find out about the severity of his injury, but with the international break coming up, the North Londoners would hope that the defender can recover in time to be in contention to start their next league fixture against Chelsea. It is believed that the Bury-born talent could miss England’s matches against the United States and Croatia during the international break.
Trippier’s Injury – Aurier’s Gain?
Trippier has started this campaign in fine form and has already put in some match-winning performances during this season. The 28-year-old full-back has featured in 14 matches for Spurs this term, scoring one goal while grabbing four assists in all competitions.
He has slowly but surely established himself as Mauricio Pochettino’s first-choice right-back, but his injury could see Serge Aurier feature more often as he looks to impress in Trippier’s absence in the coming weeks.
What Makes The English Prospect So Good?
Trippier can be considered as one of the best right-backs in the Premier League. He is a fantastic outlet for Spurs down the right flank and can deliver a telling ball into the box for the likes of Harry Kane and Dele Alli to feed on.
The English full-back is also a threat from dead ball situations and has already scored a number of breath-taking goals from free-kicks which includes his wonder strike against Croatia in the semi-finals of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
Will Trippier’s Injury Be A Huge Blow For Spurs?
Losing Trippier even if it is for a few games would be a big blow for the North London outfit as Aurier is not as effective as the English international down the right flank. With a nail-biting encounter against Chelsea coming up in the Premier League, Pochettino would hope that his first-choice right-back can make a speedy recovery as otherwise Aurier might finally get his chance in the Tottenham first-team.
