(Video) Kieran Trippier stuns Manchester City with INSANE free-kick

Kieran Trippier – WHAT A GOAL! The Manchester City academy product has come back to haunt his former side with a stunner.

Trippier is a master at set-pieces, this is one of the worst kept secrets in the English game.

The man has a World Cup semi-final free-kick goal on his C.V. He’s exactly the kind of player you wouldn’t want to present an opportunity to from a dead-ball situation.

However, Man City conceded a free-kick around 25-yards from goal, a cardinal sin against a player of Trippier’s quality.

As he stood over the ball, there was somewhat of an inevitability that it was going to nestle in the top corner of the net.

Trippier stepped up and rifled the ball home beyond the outstretched Ederson, perfect execution and a dream way to stick a finger up to the team that released you.

What a strike this is from the England international!
