Trippier admits to dip in form

16th April 2019, 13:36 by Craig Smithson

Kieran Trippier has admitted "I could have done a lot better since the World Cup" after bemoaning a loss of form this season.

The 28-year-old full-back Trippier played a key role in helping Gareth Southgate's Three Lions reach the last-four in Russia last summer and scored in the 2-1 semi-final defeat against Croatia.

However, a groin injury forced him out of the Three Lions squad in November, while he was also absent from the most recent squad to face the Czech Republic and Montenegro in their Euro 2020 qualifiers last month.

Trippier, who has made 25 appearances for Spurs this season and was an unused substitute in Saturday's 4-0 win against Huddersfield, will hope to be involved with England for their Nations League finals campaign this June, but he accepts that his game has not been up to scratch.

"I could have done a lot better than what I have done, I am the first to admit that," he told Sky Sports.

"I look at all the games I play in and review them. I have had chats with the manager and other players too, but it's all about learning and trying to do as best as I can in every game. I always do my best.

"I could have done a lot better since the World Cup. I was trying things that I shouldn't do, taking risks, I have been at fault for a few goals this season and made a few errors.

"It's all about learning and the past few games I have picked up my form a bit and hopefully I can carry on now until the end of the season."
