Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter stating their desire to see Serge Aurier start against Crystal Palace this weekend after he captained the Ivory Coast to a 2-1 victory over Tunisia.

Aurier signed for Spurs back in 2017 from Paris Saint-Germain and the right-back played more of a sporadic role in his first season in north London, playing just 17 times in the Premier League. [WhoScored]
However, with Trippier departing for Atletico Madrid, the 26-year-old finally has the chance to cement a spot in the side, although there is fierce competition from Kyle Walker-Peters at right-back.
Sadly, he hasn’t even appeared for Spurs so far this season.
So far, Walker-Peters has started three of the four games, with centre-back Davinson Sanchez coming in for the north London derby at right-back. The academy graduate, Walker-Peters, has had a positive start to the season averaging a performance rating of 6.77 (as per WhoScored), however, fans believe it’s time for him to step out for the ex-PSG man.
Here is what they had to say…
Start him please
