Former Tottenham goalkeeper Paul Robinson reckons that Tottenham are missing Kyle Walker-Peters and thinks that his former side could have benefited from Kieran Trippier remaining at the club.
The 22-year-old started Spurs’ opening three Premier League games this season, but hasn’t featured in the league since hobbling out of the 1-0 defeat to Newcastle United at the end of August with a hamstring problem.
And Walker-Peters hasn’t even been on the bench since that game, although he did play 90 minutes in the 3rd Carabao Cup humiliation against Colchester United last month – his last competitive football for Tottenham as he looks to work his way back into the side.
The England Under-21 defender has also been linked with loan moves to various Premier League clubs including Southampton and Crystal Palace, but despite being seemingly quite low down in Mauricio Pochettino’s pecking order, Robinson said that Spurs are missing him.
Robinson told Football Insider: “Kyle Walker-Peters has been a miss for us as he is an outstanding full-back, but I think the cover and options we have behind him, we could have done with Kieran Trippier sticking around a bit long.”
