Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris says his side are “ready to suffer” in order to see off Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-finals. Spurs head to the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday with a 1-0 first-leg lead, thanks to Son Heung-min’s later winner, but City are still favourites to progress to the last four as their quadruple quest faces a pivotal moment.

Tottenham Hotspur identify Hugo Lloris replacement?

Tottenham Hotspur allegedly identify Osijek goalkeeper Marko Malenica as a potential replacement for Hugo Lloris. Osijek goalkeeper Marko Malenica has reportedly emerged as a potential transfer target for Tottenham Hotspur. Mauricio Pochettino is well stocked for options between the sticks, but it has been suggested that Spurs are wary of Hugo Lloris leaving in the summer. According to the Daily Star, that has resulted in the North London outfit identifying Malenica as a potential replacement for the World Cup winner. The report claims that Pochettino would be satisfied with promoting Paulo Gazzaniga to first choice, with Malenica coming in as backup to the Argentine. Malencia has spent his professional career contracted to Osijek, while the 25-year-old has previously represented Croatia a...

Champions League Team of the Week – Roberto Firmino, Son Heung-min, Frenkie de Jong

Sports Mole selects its Champions League team of the week for the first legs of the quarter-finals, including Roberto Firmino, Son Heung-min and Frenkie de Jong.

A late goal from Son Heung-min earns Tottenham Hotspur a 1-0 win over Manchester City in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final on Tuesday night.

Son Heung-min has given Spurs a narrow advantage ahead of next week’s reverse fixture at the Etihad Stadium, but Harry Kane has suffered what appears to be another ankle ligament injury. Both teams showed their qualities during a fast opening in North London, but it was Spurs who created the first opportunity of the contest as Dele Alli fired a volley marginally over the crossbar after meeting Moussa Sissoko‘s cross. However, it was n...

Tottenham Hotspur to move for £35m Lazio goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha?

Lazio’s £35m-rated goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha emerges as a possible summer transfer target for Tottenham Hotspur, amid concerns over current first choice Hugo Lloris. Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly lined up a move for Lazio goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha as a replacement for Hugo Lloris. World Cup-winning keeper Lloris made another error on Sunday as he gifted Liverpool a late goal in their 2-1 win at Anfield. Despite the 32-year-old’s quality once again being questioned, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has vowed to stick by his skipper, who he describes as “one of the best” in the world. That will not stop Tottenham searching for a new long-term successor, though, and The Sun reports that Strakosha could possibly be brought in this summer, having been scouted by th...

Tottenham Hotspur ‘have no plans to replace Hugo Lloris’

A report claims that Tottenham Hotspur are not currently focusing on bringing in a replacement for Hugo Lloris as they instead want to strengthen other areas. Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino will reportedly not move to bring in a new goalkeeper in the summer transfer window, despite concerns over Hugo Lloris. The French World Cup winner has endured a difficult campaign on the whole after making numerous high-profile errors, including a costly mistake late on to deny Spurs a point away to Liverpool on Sunday. Lloris has also had difficulties off the field, having been fined £50,000 and given a ban from driving in September after admitting to a drink-drive charge. According to the Daily Mail, however, a new number one is not on Pochettino’s agenda ahead of next season as he ...
