What a feeling it is to break your duck for your new club.
Sergie Aurier will be celebrating tonight after opening his Spurs account.
The Ivorian, who signed from PSG in the summer, opened the scoring against Brighton at Wembley with a very fortuitous goal.
But don’t take anything away from the man who scored just 11 times in his eight-year career as a professional before tonight.
Some neat Spurs build-up lead to Aurier finding himself one-on-one with his defender on the right byline.
A duck of the shoulder saw him leave Jose Izquierdo for dust as he burst towards the box.
With Harry Kane loitering in the box there was only one thing on the right back’s mind.
He whipped in a delicious curling cross that swirled in the wind, and with the keeper off his line, there was only one result.
Brighton’s keeper Matthew Ryan completely misjudged the flight of the ball for this one, had he been correctly positioned on his line it would have been an easy gather.

As it was, the ball looped over him and nestled in the far corner of the net.
Aurier wheeled away in delight and there is no denying this was a huge release for him.
He hadn’t scored for the last three seasons.
And he was playing at PSG who score goals with their eyes closed.
This is your time, Serge.
