Tottenham Hotspur moved into fifth place in the Premier League with a dramatic late victory in a goal-laden match against Aston Villa on Sunday afternoon.
Heung-min Son was the man to clinch it, bagging in the fourth minute of additional time to seal his brace and the three points for Spurs.
Jose Mourinho’s side came from behind to take the lead into half-time after Toby Alderwiereld made amends for his own goal by slotting from ten yards out before the South Korean scored his first goal via a rebound from his missed penalty.
Some members of the Tottenham faithful didn’t hold back in their reviews of the match – even despite picking up the win – as they hammered right-back Serge Aurier for his display.
Here’s what has been said…
#THFC we might as well not bother with a right back. Aurier is missing every game. Caught up front not rushing to defend & when he does he’s hopelessly out of position & don’t get me started on his reckless tackling

Aurier Dier and Dele have all dropped disasterclasses

Of the reaction that was actually suitable for this audience, a whole host of negative words were used to describe the 27-year-old’s performance – including “walking liability” and “brainless.”
One supporter then went as far as calling it a “disasterclass,” while he was even brandished as an “idiot.”
Per SofaScore, Aurier picked up the second-lowest rating of any Spurs player (6.4) after he lost possession a huge 24 times, could only manage a 63% passing accuracy and also committed three fouls.
So maybe some of the responses were justified.
A couple of others asked the club to get rid of the Ivory Coast international, even telling them to release him on the spot.

@SpursOfficial honestly, you have to move aurier and Lloris on in the summer.

There were also a handful of comparisons to players past and present in north London – one member of the Spurs faithful claimed Aurier was worse than both Dele Alli and Eric Dier whilst another believed he was the worst right-back the club has ever had.
A further supporter said out-on-loan Kyle Walker-Peters was a much better option, so you’d imagine he’s ruining that January decision.
Aurier worse than both Dele and Dier….He needs to come out at halftime as he’s a walking red card…Boy he is just not good enough to be on a champions league side…#LWOS # COYS # THFC

Aurier is the worse RB we've ever had and that's saying something.
