“Serge Aurier’s like Melisandre” Tottenham Fans React To The Defender’s Performance vs West Ham

published :

Tottenham just about held on in the end as they defeated West Ham United 3-2 at the London Stadium. This is the first time we have won our first three away games of a Premier League season and it didn’t start all that well as the Hammers were on top in the opening stages.

But up stepped Harry Kane who scored a quick fire brace in the first half, the first one being an excellent header from a whipped in cross from Dele Alli while the second was a typical poacher’s finish.

The second half started in the same manner for us, with Christian Eriksen scoring. But one of the major talking points was the sending off of Serge Aurier. The signing from PSG, who was sent off on the same date last year as well, started the first half really well as he crossed in a fizzed ball which Kane could not convert. But he also had a handball shout against him not given, which was lucky for us.

The Ivorian was booked for a second time, in the second half, for a stupid challenge on Andy Carroll and then it all started. Chicharito had already scored before Aurier was given his marching orders and that provided West Ham with a powerplay of sorts for 20 minutes.

Things got really scary for us when Kouyate scored in the 87th minute but we just about held on, even after a Hammers barrage on our goal.

Aurier did really well in the first half but that fire and aggression needs to be checked if he is to be a success at the club.

A number of reactions featured on Twitter regarding the game and the sending off of Aurier. And here are some of the best.
