Many Tottenham fans on Twitter were critical of recent signing Serge Aurier’s display in the Champions League win against Apoel Nicosia.
Harry Kane’s hat-trick secured the victory for Spurs but many fans were unconvinced by Aurier’s performance at full-back.
Aurier’s crossing was of particular concern, with a number of wayward deliveries attracting criticism.

Aurier couldn’t cross a bridge at this point #THFC

Aurier’s side is looking pretty vulnerable #coys

Aurier looks clumsy, lazy and unfit tonight. Oh and can’t cross for toffee #COYS

Aurier really needs to improve his crosses, with how much time and open space he has, they need to be better #COYS

However, some fans are more optimistic about Aurier’s potential, with some pointing to the improvement in full-backs Kyle Walker and Danny Rose during their time at Spurs.
Very little to go on, but Aurier looks like a guy with tons of ability but limited game intelligence. Doubtless Poch will sort him out #thfc
