Tottenham Hotspur maintained their pursuit of European football after beating Sheffield United 4-0 at home on Sunday.
Gareth Bale has scored three times for the North London club while Son Heung-Min added another to earn all three points for Ryan Mason’s side.
Serge Aurier was brilliant during the game and many Spurs fans warmly congratulated him on social media after the game.
The 28-year-old provided the assist for Bale’s opening goal before the right-back pushed him to bang in the third in the second half.

It was arguably Aurier’s best performance for Spurs this season.
The Ivorian international has managed just 18 appearances this season in the Premier League, scoring twice and providing three assists.
Aurier also defended well against the Blades, making two tackles and two interceptions.
The major problem Spurs face with Aurier is that he’s barely consistent. On this day, he can put in a great performance like this, but it frustrates most of the time.
Aurier has a contract with Spurs until 2022, and doubts remain as to whether he will extend his stay beyond that period.
Tottenham have now moved up to fifth in the table, five points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.
In other news, Tottenham are looking forward to signing Ivan Toney this summer.
