Tottenham fullback Trippier: I should be playing better

Tottenham fullback Kieran Trippier admits his form hasn't been good enough this season.

Trippier has refused to blame burnout from the World Cup for a difficult campaign.

"I've picked up a lot of injuries and there's been games when I've looked back and watched, and thought 'I could have done this better', 'I could have done that better'," he told The Telegraph.

"It's all about learning, but I admit I could have done a lot better. I am here now and I need to try to impress to try and start for England and try and do the best I can with every opportunity I get between now and the end of the season.

"Obviously, it's a long World Cup getting to the semis and stuff. The Premier League come around straightaway, but it's what we do it. It's our job."
