I reckon it will end up being Trips.

I'm not a big fan of Serge and he's had plenty of time now to have settled and demand the starting berth. However if he improves his inconsistent.

I was thinking about Perriera and the fact we appeared to opt for Serge. It's looking a bollock dropped by I wonder whether the thinking was that Perriera would be more likely to block KWP's path as they have similar attributes.
Serge reminds me of Sissoko.

Same raw atheltisn , speed , power but appears lacking

If Poch can sort him out like Sissoko gonna have a monster of RB

I get the impression that Pochettino likes kwp but wants him to bulk out a bit and improve his physicality.

So pleased for KWP yesterday, thought he showed his excellent decision making skills in the final third. Really hope his 3rd consecutive MOTM, from only 3 starts (is this a record) isn't followed by the standard 20 game period of wilderness and allows him to build on some good performances. He might be able to start showing his ability to beat a man if he knows he won't be dropped, and then we will start having an idea of what he can really do. The only negative I saw in his performance was some of his positioning when holding the line, but again that will happen if you not able to build up a rapport or understanding with your defence and will come with time. Hopefully, some fans will realise we don't need Wan-Bissaka after all

It’s at the point for me where I don’t really rate KWP, but he’s definitely better than than trippier so for that alone he needs to start

But I think we have to make a choice and look towards the long term

We either look at wan bissaka

Or we ship out trippier and go with aurier and KWP

Poor lad, plays brilliantly almost every game, last game gets 3 Assist and is the MOTM bit is still always benched for the most overrated RB that has ever played football
We always rotate our fullbacks when we have two games in a week to be fair. But if KWP doesn't start at Cardiff now I'll be very annoyed.

The England team is going to be absolutely STOCKED at right back in a few years time. Wan-Bissaka, TAA, Max Aarons, Dujon Sterling and KWP all look like outstanding talents.

Poch likes to rotate the full backs so it was always unlikely that he would play two games in three days. We're much more likely to see him against Cardiff or Tranmere.

I agree with rotation but its not like KWP has played consistently all season. he had a great game and could have easily played yesterday whilst he confidence was very high. He should be back in against cardiff.

Poch does like to rotate full backs but given KWP has hardly played all season and is a young lad (and got three assists against Bournemouth) personally I’d have played him against Wolves as well as he’d have been on a high.

Trippier has also been badly out of form all season.

I'd feel right pissed off if I was KWP. Trippier not covering himself in glory and tired, yet KWP can't get a start.

Shocking decision to leave him out.

KWP did well against Tranmere. He showed that he has learned from last season's difficult experience against lower League players and coped much more comfortably last night. He has confidence in himself and his ability - a very good sign for the future.

The only consistent gripe I have with Poch is that he seems adamant that Trippier is our first choice RB when just about everybody can see he's actually our 3rd best option. It's going to piss me off when Trippier gets the start Tuesday night over KWP and Aurier. It's maddening. Especially against a team like Chelsea.
