Tottenham Hotspur came from behind to record a 2-1 win over Watford in Wednesday night’s Premier League clash at Wembley.
Craig Cathcart sent Watford into a first-half lead, but Son Heung-Min came up with an 80th-minute leveller before Fernando Llorente struck late on for the hosts.
It was a huge result for Spurs and despite their struggles, Mauricio Pochettino’s side are now just two points adrift of second-placed Manchester City in the table.
There does seem to be a real issue at right-back at the moment, however, with Kieran Trippier’s form questionable to say the absolute least.
Serge Aurier was deployed in a right wing-back role against Watford, but the Ivorian did not fare much better and his performance has been slammed by the Tottenham fans.
It has not quite happened for Aurier since his move from Paris Saint-Germain in 2017 and it surely seems unlikely that the defender will have a long-term future at the club.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the Spurs supporters can be seen below:
Aurier was absolutely abysmal don’t think I’ve ever even seen trippier play that bad

Aurier has to be gone in the summer, a waste of space!

Yep! Can’t lift a ball! And Aurier was a disgrace! Slow, no effort! No wonder Poch subbed him HT

Whisper it but I might have to concede that Trippier is a better option than Aurier ?

He has a point – aurier was terrible tonight…

Our rb has festered into huge issue . Aurier was pathetic , trippier is the same . Poch doesn’t trust kwp enough , sissoko is our best option .

Things we learned tonight;
Llorente can actually ball when he gets some decent service.
Our CM (Sissoko) is a better right back than both of our actual senior right backs, Aurier 1/10 tonight.
Rose is back to being the Rose we thought we lost a few years ago.
