“Terminate his contract”, “Sell him” – Several Tottenham fans target star man after 2-0 loss to Crystal Palace

Tottenham were bundled out of the FA Cup just days after the Carabao Cup exit at the hands of Chelsea. This was another London derby, with Crystal Palace picking up a 2-0 win.

First-half goals from Connor Wickham and Andros Townsend were enough to get the better of us, but we did have a glorious chance to get back in the game before half-time.

Juan Foyth was fouled in the penalty area and Kieran Trippier was the player that stepped up to face Julian Speroni. Although we had attackers such as Lucas Moura and Fernando Llorente on the pitch, the defender was given the opportunity to get us back into the game, and he blasted the spot-kick wide of the post.

Spurs did have other chances to score, but Speroni did a great job of saving almost everything he faced. This wasn’t the first time Trippier has cost us a goal this season, with his error leading to Manchester United’s only goal in our loss to the Red Devils.

Trippier hasn’t tapped into the form that he hit at the World Cup, and we are yet to see him perform consistently for Spurs this season. Several Spurs fans seemed to have had enough of the defender and ripped into him on Twitter.
