Tottenham 4-Crystal Palace 0

Tottenham played host to Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Palace had been in decent form heading into the clash, and recently picked up a 2-1 win vs Manchester United.

However, the Eagles’ display vs Spurs was not exactly impressive.

Tottenham ended up coming away with a 4-0 win, thanks to goals from Heung-Min Son (2), Erik Lamela and an own goal.

Aurier impresses vs Palace

After Kieran Trippier departed Tottenham over the summer for Atletico Madrid, Spurs haven’t really had a regular starter at right-back.

Kyle-Walker Peters and Davinson Sanchez have played there previously this campaign.

However, it would be Serge Aurier who filled that role vs Crystal Palace.

Aurier previously spoke about wanting to leave Tottenham over the summer.

But the defender had a superb outing vs Palace that saw him earn an assist.

After his impressive display, Mauricio Pochettino has challenged Aurier to be consistent:

“I think he was very happy. We were very happy too. I think the performance was great.

“First half was fantastic, his concentration and focus.

“Now he needs to show and be consistent. It’s not only one game and the second game the focus and intensity start to drop. That is the key in our team, not only him but all the players.

“All the players need to be consistent and understand that every time we are going to compete we have to give our best.

“Give like a collective our best and for sure we have the quality to beat any team.” As quoted by Sky Sports News.
