Arsenal have been thrown a surprise compliment by Tottenham summer signing Serge Aurier, after the defender admitted that he still supports the Gunners, despite signing for their fiercest rivals only a few months ago.
Arsenal were downed 3-1 by Manchester United last Saturday as they were almost single-handedly beaten by an inspired performance from David de Gea.
