Arsenal fans were left lamenting missing out on the Tottenham star.
Spurs signed the Ivory Coast defender from Paris Saint-Germain on transfer deadline day for £23 million.
Aurier had experience playing in the Champions League and also at the World Cup and was not fazed by being thrown into such a big game.
Fans of rivals Arsenal were left watching on enviously at Aurier's performance.
Gunners ace Hector Bellerin has struggled over the past 12 months to live up to the high standards he set previously and has begun to lose a bit of the faith he had earned from the club's fans.
Aurier, 24, would have been a smart signing as competition for Bellerin's place, but Spurs brought him into challenge Kieran Trippier instead.
Last night Aurier demonstrated why he has a strong shot of winning the starting gig full time.
Here is a look at how fans of rivals Arsenal reacted to Aurier's Spurs debut...
