Tottenham's hopes of a top four finish took another dent yesterday as Liverpool climbed back to the top of the Premier League with a dramatic win.
“(It's) because he's not a very good defender," Souness said as part of the commentary team
Describing the incident, the former Spurs apprentice slammed Trippier's lack of awareness as to where Alderweireld was, insisting his lack of trust in his team-mate cost them a goal.
“If we see it again, the ball's switched.
“Watch Trippier look over his left shoulder.
“He's wondering where Alderweireld is - he shouldn't be.
“It's easier to play with a five, it should be easier for the widest player, the full-back, wing-back, to go and sprint to the ball because you've got three centre-halves behind you.
“He's gone out to the ball looking over his left shoulder going 'where are you Alderweireld?'.
“He shouldn't have to do that.
“Just sprint and assume that Alderweireld is there. He has to sprint there.
“But Trippier's strength is going forward and delivering the kind of ball that Robertson did, not defending."
