Tottenham Hotspur stretched their unbeaten run in all competitions to 17 matches on Saturday with a comprehensive 2-0 victory at home to Huddersfield Town in the English Premier League.
Son Heung-min was the hero of the day, netting in each half to secure a three points that sees them open up a gap on fifth-placed Chelsea ahead of their tricky trip to Manchester City on Sunday.
With a huge clash against Juventus to come this week, it was the best perfect preparation and fans are heading into that UEFA Champions League encounter with confidence.
One player that caught their eye on Saturday was Serge Aurier, a player has been on the receiving end of heavy criticism in recent weeks.
However, on Saturday he barely put a foot wrong and was in fact an effective presence on the right flank for Mauricio Pochettino’s side, much to the delight of supporters.
After a particularly poor display in the first leg against Juventus, fans will be hoping he can gain confidence from the match against the Terriers and perform well at Wembley on Wednesday night.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his performance…

The talent in Aurier shone through today. Did not put a foot wrong all game. Solid defensivly and was a threat down the right-hand side. Hopefully now he can keep this level of performance up.

Think it’s fair to say Serge Aurier has polarised opinion so far during his short period at Spurs however looked back to his best today and most importantly completed all of his throw-ins successfully, the training paid off!

A lot of you were hammering Aurier last week! Bloke played a blinder today so hope you all recognise that 👍

Aurier has received alot of stick for his performances since Juve away & I'm as guilty as anyone, but I thought he was absolutely superb today, solid, disciplined & that is how I expect a £25m right back to perform.
Well done Serge!#aurier #THFC

Aurier was very good today.

Job done! A very good performance from the boys today. Could and should've been more. We weren't clinical enough and tougher opposition won't give us as many chances. Son, Davinson, Davies and Aurier were all immense today. Bring on Juventus! #COYS #THFC
