Hugo Lloris suffers hamstring blow

Hugo Lloris was forced off with a hamstring injury earlier today in Tottenham’s 2016/17 season premiere against Everton. Lloris was subbed off late in the first half with Michel Vorm replacing him. The Frenchman had conceded his first goal of the season as Everton went ahead in the 6th minute. The game eventually finished 1-1.

Wishing Lloris a speedy recovery and all the best to Spurs this season.

That happiness escalated rather quickly!

Hugo Lloris returned from vacation a happy man to start the pre-season with Tottenham when the club released a statement concerning a wrist fracture:

“The club can confirm that Hugo Lloris has sustained a fractured wrist during the close season period. The France goalkeeper will continue to work alongside the first team squad to build up his fitness in a bid to be ready for the start of the season. Our medical team will continue to monitor his rehabilitation and progress during preseason.”

Recover well, Lloris 🙂

Lloris, the first half of the 2014/15 season

27

It’s that time again!

Glossing over the stats for the opening of the 2014/15 season, Lloris started pretty decent for both club and country. Although there might be one or two games he might want to erase from memory, I think this season has been his best thus far.

Group hug?

Yep. That good a start!

Spurs

Lloris kicked off the season with a clean sheet against West Ham as he helped his team win 1-0 away at Upton Park. As he continued to perform for Spurs, he was branded Man of the Match of many matches by fans and critics, like in the game against Arsenal where they were held 1-1. Losing 4-1 away to Man City saw him concede all 4 goals by Kun and it could have been more! He might want to forget that game and the ones against Liverpool and Chelsea.

The French goalie went on to perform well in the Europa League keeping 4 clean sheets out of 6 appearances. He was wrongly sent off against Asteras Tripolis in October.

Had it  not been for Lloris super performances in most matches this season, his side would have been utterly humiliated and would have been somewhere in the bottom 10. Lloris is now seen as Spurs’ most important player.

France

Blues stroll to Marseille 18/11/2014

France are the hosts of Euro 2016 and since they automatically qualify, they’ve been playing some interesting friendlies. Lloris kept a clean sheet in his first game for France against Spain. The French won 1-0 and it was a satisfying victory for us Les Bleus fans. In his other two apps for France, he drew 1-1 against Serbia and the very defensive Albania.

Lloris only featured in 3 games for France, conceding 2 goals and keeping one clean sheet.

monthly report 2

Total clean sheets thus far: 10 (1 with France, 5 in the EPL & 4 in the Europa)

Total goals conceded: 28 (2 with France; 24 in the EPL {inclusive of 1 OG from Kane & 2 penalties}; 2 Europa)

Total bookings: 1 (red) (Europa)

Total apps: 28

As we head into the 2nd half of the 2014/15 season with these stats in mind, I hope Spurs can improve in the back for the goalie’s sake. Watching the game against Man United earlier, one can see how frustrated he was at having to work for himself most of the time at the back. He shouldn’t have to work that hard. His defense should be working for him as well for after all, it’s a team effort.

Keep up the great work, Lloris.

Hugo Lloris - Tottenham Hotspur v Liverpool - Premier League

Report: the first half of Lloris 2013-14 season

Photo: Mr. Hugo Lloris

Hugo Lloris started off the 2013/14 season pretty well, keeping 4 consecutive clean sheets (1 for France, 1 in the Europa & 2 in the EPL).

He had many great games in a France and Spurs shirt and some he might want to forget about. He kept clean sheets in all the Europa League games he was featured in.

Spurs

He kicked off the season with a clean sheet against Crystal Palace, after the team won 1-0. When Arsenal hosted Spurs in the first North London derby of the new season, they took first victory, winning 1-0. Although Spurs lost, Lloris was seen as the MOTM by many football outlets because of his performance. Arsenal could have won by more. He was also the MOTM when Spurs traveled to Craven Cottage to face Fulham. The match ended in a 1-1 draw.

He might want to forget the games against Manchester City, Liverpool, West Ham and Everton. One match he did not deserve to lose was the Capital One Cup match against West Ham. In the Europa League, he was pretty much awesome., keeping clean sheets in all the games he featured in.

France

Lloris kept a clean sheet in the first match for France at the start of the season against Belgium. This friendly ended in a 0-0 stalemate. He had a bad game against Belarus because he had a stomach bug (according to Deschamps). Lloris played 7 games for France, keeping 5 clean sheets and conceding only 4 goals.
