Royal shouldn’t have started the game against a notoriously difficult player and atmosphere.
I don't think it's the worst idea. Kind of: here's what we regularly face in the PL. Deal with it.

I thought he handled some of it quite well actually. But he had a rude awakening when Zaha kept besting him. At least he got to experience the thrill of Spurs at their worst right from the get go. All other sensations can only be more positive!

Whenever I look at your Avatar I hear “Love the beard darling…gives me [thrust] something to hold on to“ running through my head.
 
I said he should have made his debut against Rennes not away against one of the league's trickiest wingers but what do I know.

I think he will be fine. I don't buy the Nuno quotes that he's an offensive full back though.
 
I thought Emerson had a decent game.

He had to take on Zaha alone which is not an easy task. But he didn't back down and took the challenge.

Yes, eventually Zaha did get the best of him but I like his spirit. I think he will have a bright future with the

club.

First half I definitely think that he kept Zaha in check. He got overwhelmed in the second half but that entire half was a shambles as a whole so I am not sure how much of that is on him or just on the entire team collapsing in on itself.

Agreed. He was soundly beaten by Zaha most times, but showed a lot of fight and effort.
Let's remember he's 22, 4 days in the country, a stranger to the whole team and a brand new league.

He needs a good 10-15 games to at least settle in.
