Spurs fans furious with the performance of defender in Palace victory: “Beyond useless”, “Embarrassment”

Tottenham Hotspur left it late against Crystal Palace to get a 1-0 win on Sunday afternoon and fans were not impressed with one of their stars on social media.

Spurs dominated the match against the Eagles at Selhurst Park in the early game of the day, however, they failed to make any of their chances count until the very end.

Harry Kane headed home the winner from a deep corner in the final moments of the clash, to help lift Tottenham into the top four of the Premier League table.

It was the 35th goal of the season for the England international in all competitions as the Spurs man has equalled his tally for his best-ever run.

However, Tottenham should have been well ahead before Kane saved the day, especially with the chance that Serge Aurier had late on.

The Ivorian defender had the opportunity to get the winner when he was running into a ball across the face of the goal, but the Spurs man could not sort his feet out in time and saw it eventually cleared away by the Eagles.

The former Paris Saint-Germain was also blown up by the referee three times during the match for making a number of foul throws, whilst he looked as suspect in defence as Tottenham have become accustomed to.

Spurs fans took to Twitter after the game and were furious with his performance, with a number of them calling for the right-back to leave their club after just six months, whilst others continued to be disappointed by his displays.

Here are some of their reactions:





Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino also has Kieran Trippier in the right-back role but it appears that the Argentine prefers Aurier in the position.

The African full-back has had a topsy turvy time of it since joining Spurs, with some excellent performances but a number of high-profile incidents blighting his progress.

These include Aurier being sent off for Tottenham against West Ham and also giving away penalties in Champions League clashes against Real Madrid and Juventus.

That said, the entire Spurs side were off their usual pace against Palace and Pochettino may well be tempted to put it down as an off-day for Aurier.
