Some Spurs fans have been left fuming at Serge Aurier’s display after Tottenham’s 3-1 defeat to Sheffield United at Bramall Lane last night.

The Lilywhites looked toothless in attack as the home side sat back and invited pressure throughout the match.

Despite huffing and puffing, Jose Mourinho’s men created no real chances of any substance through the first 85 minutes.

Unfortunately, the team’s defensive display was just as poor, with the Spurs boss likely to look back on all three goals as avoidable.

Although it would be fair to say that the majority of the Spurs team underperformed, it was Aurier’s display that seemed to particularly hit a nerve with some Spurs fans.

The right-back’s inability to get decent crosses into the box left some infuriated while his involvement in Sheffield United’s second goal, where he failed to track his man, was not well received either.

Here’s how some Tottenham fans reacted to the 27-year-old’s performance:

Spurs Web Opinion

While Aurier was extremely poor, I do not think he was worse than the likes of Sanchez, Davies, Sissoko or even Lo Celso, who also had an uncharacteristically poor game. Right-back is one of several areas we need to upgrade this summer but, with little funds available, it remains to be seen if we will be able to get players of the kind of quality we need.
