Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have called for Matt Doherty to be recalled to the starting eleven.

Doherty has found himself playing second fiddle to Serge Aurier in recent weeks with the Ivorian having been in impressive form.

Aurier, who has previously had a reputation for his defending with Gary Neville describing it to Sky Sports as a ‘mess’ in October of last year after he conceded a penalty against Liverpool.

The 27-year-old was once again guilty of a defensive lapse of concentration yesterday when he was at fault for gifting Leicester City the lead in the Premier League clash in North London.

Aurier crashed into the back of Wesley Fofana just before the half time break which left referee Craig Pawson no option but to award a penalty which Jamie Vardy converted.

His performance after the break was also below standard with more than one cross failing to reach a Spurs team-mate with manager Jose Mourinho hauling him off after 64 minutes.
