Despite losing, Lloris stood tall

It could have been more.

It should have been more.

Spurs lost 2-0 today away to West Ham with first half goals from Downing and a Kane own goal. Younes Kaboul was sent off in the 25′ for bringing down Downing as he bore down on goal and Spurs had it to do with 10 men.

However, it could have easily been 6-7 goals to West Ham had it not been for Hugo Lloris, who pulled off some excellent saves (7 in total). Even West Ham fans praised his saving abilities. Someone said that Spurs should be called Hugo Lloris FC. Made me smile that one 🙂  because the man literally had no defence.

Hugo Lloris deserves much better. He should be playing Champions League football. I am very surprised that FC Barcelona has not gone for him.

Good job today Lloris in showing the world, ‘Me? Overrated?’
