What a debut!
The Ivorian has given Mauricio Pochettino a selection headache ahead of Saturday’s home game against Swansea City.
The 24-year-old was highly impressive against Dortmund and it was easy to see why Pochettino was so keen to bring him to north London.
Aurier has pace and power in abundance and he displayed that throughout the contest.
That was there to see when he knocked the ball beyond a Dortmund player and ran off the pitch to go around his opponent.
As good as the player was going forward, he was also strong at the back.
Spurs certainly have a player on their hands and he will no doubt only get better.
As well as Aurier giving his manager a selection dilemma, Heung-min Son has done likewise following his display at the national stadium.
Handed only his second start of the season, the South Korean topped off an impressive performance with the first goal of the night.
It was some goal as well, even if Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Burki should have done much better at his near post.
Perhaps Dortmund should have done more to stop Son, especially as his strike was his seventh goal in nine matches against them.
Whether he starts or not, Pochettino knows exactly what he’s going to get from his player.
Although Dele Alli will be back for Saturday’s game, the manager may well opt to give Son another start.
The goals are flowing now it’s September.
Fresh from his double against Everton at the weekend, Harry Kane netted another brace.
As well as that, he also teed Son up for the opening goal of the night.
It wasn’t just his form in front of goal that caught the eye.
The England international showed why he is one the best strikers in the world at present as he caused the visitors a number of problems all night.
The German side struggled to deal with the frontman and he was unlucky not to leave with the match ball.
He deserved his standing ovation.
Trippier, watching on from the substitutes’ bench, will have been quite worried with what he saw from Aurier.
As good as the former Burnley man was at the end of last season, he has not enjoyed the best start to the new campaign.
While it looked like he may be the man to permanently replace Kyle Walker following his big-money move to Manchester City, Aurier has made life difficult for Pochettino.
The Ivorian was extremely impressive at Wembley and he could well keep his place in the starting XI on Saturday.
As his debut was so good, you would expect him to get better and better over the course of the season.
That’s going to make things extremely tough for Trippier, especially if Aurier is handed his chance in the first team and Pochettino elects to keep him there.
The game ended on a sour note for the team after Jan Vertonghen was given his marching orders after his stray arm caught Mario Gotze in the face.
While it was not clear at the time if he had received a straight red or a second yellow card, UEFA confirmed that it was actually a second booking.
That means that the defender will now miss the trip to APOEL Nicosia at the end of the month.
Prior to his dismissal, Vertonghen was strong in defence as ever for the Lilywhites.
However, his red card did tarnish the result somewhat.
According to Bild in Germany, Gotze now needs dental work after some of his teeth were moved out of place following the collision.
Thankfully for Spurs, as well as the Belgian, he will only be missing for one match.
Even though there were question marks surrounding his future in the summer, Moussa Sissoko has featured in all of the club’s games so far this season.
This wasn’t his finest moment.
Brought on for the final seven minutes of the game, the Frenchman had the chance to add a fourth goal in stoppage time.
Running through on the Dortmund goal, Sissoko just didn’t have the legs to get his shot away on target.
He allowed the defender to catch up with him and he comically sliced his effort wide of the target.
It was Sissoko at his best!
