Mings says he is happy having Atletico Madrid right-back Trippier alongside him at left-back.
When asked about playing alongside Trippier, Mings said on Tuesday: "It was great. He's a really - I wouldn't say underrated - but he's not necessarily flamboyant is he?
"To play alongside and to be around, he's a really great guy and a really great defender. He's got a lot experience, coming off the back of a really successful season as well.
"He certainly helped me, as well as everybody else who played but yeah, I love playing with him."
