Hugo Lloris pulls off STUNNING save to keep Tottenham hopes alive

He humbly plays it down, but Hugo Lloris was the hero last evening at BayArena during the scoreless Champions League match.

Lloris made a string of excellent stops last evening to deny Javier Hernandez and Bayer Leverkusen any form of victory. The Man of the Match goalie played a pivotal role in making sure that Leverkusen didn’t concede, but his finest moment was when he denied Hernandez from close range. The Frenchman spared no thought as he sprung across goal and with incredible cat reflexes, he managed to grab the ball and cling onto it to ensure that it did not cross the line. 

He was rightfully named Man of the Match, but he refused to take credit for his heroic efforts.

That’s a technology decision. Listen, you need a bit of luck in that kind of action. This time I could save this goal. It’s important. It’s a key moment but it’s not the only one

‘I prefer to be more positive because I think we did a great job altogether. We should have scored in the first half and the game would have been much different.

‘In two weeks, we will face them again. We need to be ready for this battle.’

Indeed, Spurs should’ve scored in the first half given that they were dominant. They still have a chance to redeem themselves, but they need to up their game if they’re serious about making it to the next round.

In the meantime, TAKE A BOW CAPTAIN!

Son delivers as Spurs claim victory

My Heart Beats Football

Heung-Min Son showcased a superb display last evening when Tottenham faced Qarabag in their Europa League group opener.

Qarabag scored the opening goal in the 7th minute after Kieran Trippier brought down Afran Ismayilov resulting in a penalty. Richard had Lloris beat as he converted confidently from the spot. Qarabag continued to dominate the game, but Spurs fought back hard.

In the 28th minute, Andros Townsend swung in a corner and an unmarked Son tied things up at 1-1. Two minutes later, Son was at it again. He played a through ball to Dele Alli who laid the ball back for Son to smash home his second. A brace for the South Korean on his debut for his new club and he couldn’t have written the script any better. Son is a prospect I am utterly exciting about. I can’t wait to see him light up the PL.
