After failing to secure a move away from London in the European transfer window, Aurier returned to Mauricio Pochettino's team in style.

It was the 26-year-old's first appearance in the Premier League this season and he will have to wait for his maiden game in the Champions League this term.
Meanwhile, Kenya captain Victor Wanyama was part of Tottenham's travelling party that left London on Tuesday as he hopes to play his first game of the season in Athens.
