Tottenham took a big step towards a top-four finish by beating Brighton, but Kieran Tripper’s performance again attracted plenty of criticism.
Christian Eriksen’s late strike made it a night to remember for Spurs, but Trippier’s display at right-back did little to silence his detractors.
The England international impressed at last year’s World Cup but has struggled for form this season.
And there was plenty of criticism from Spurs fans on Twitter despite the result.
Trippier has duped the whole country not least Spurs fans with his performances at the WC.
League 1 at best!

I will be astonished if anyone bids for Trippier in the summer

Llorente, Trippier and Wanyama. Are nowhere near good enough.

Richarlason we should have defo bought….and your boy trippier needs to go back to Burnley…he has one route and always looks nervous these days

Games like today, really show how bad trippier is.. His inability to beat a player, means when he gets it in the last 3rd, he either passes backwards or just crosses it straight in to their defender

No idea why Poch plays Trippier #THFC

Kind of used to Trippier not being any good defensively. But when he has to take 2-3 touches when in a good crossing position, and then deliver a poor ball into the box, you begin to wonder what he’s really in the team for. #THFC #TOTBHA
