Tottenham looking over shoulders at top-four challengers – Hugo Lloris

Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris accepts his side are now looking over their shoulders at the teams chasing them in the race for the Premier League top four. Spurs have been considered title challengers after a superb run of fixtures but two defeats in three games – the latest to Manchester United on Sunday – kills any realistic chance of overhauling Liverpool or Manchester City above them. They are just a point ahead of Chelsea in fourth place while defeat to United means they are only seven points better off than Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side and Arsenal. ?

Mauricio Pochettino hits out at Hugo Lloris’ critics

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has accused Hugo Lloris’ critics of having short memories. The France goalkeeper received widespread condemnation for his red card following a reckless challenge in Spurs’ 2-2 Champions League draw at PSV, which came with his side in total control at 2-1 up. The Dutch outfit went on to equalise and make Spurs’ chances of progressing out of the group stage highly unlikely. It compounded a difficult start to the season for Lloris, who has struggled with a hamstring injury and also admitted a charge of drink-driving at Westminster Magistrates Court in August. Wednesday’s mistake at PSV came just days after his man-of-the-match performance against West Ham and Pochettino believes Lloris deserves more respect, insisting he is one of the best keepers in the ...

Pochettino refuses to blame Lloris as Spurs stutter to draw at PSV

Mauricio Pochettino refused to blame Hugo Lloris despite the goalkeeper’s sending-off almost certainly costing Tottenham their place in the Champions League. Spurs were leading PSV Eindhoven 2-1 in Holland with 11 minutes to go when Lloris charged out of his area and upended Hirving Lozano to earn a straight red card. The 10 men promptly conceded an equaliser to leave both sides on just one point after three matches in Group B and facing the prospect of little more than a scuffle for third place and the Europa League. PSV’s opening goal also came from a mistake, by Toby Alderweireld, but Spurs boss Pochettino laid the blame at his side’s failure to take their chances rather than the brain fades at the back. “I think it’s easy to judge the game,” he said. “If you didn’t win following what h...

Hugo Lloris: Hefty transfer fee is counting against Paul Pogba

The Tottenham goalkeeper believes his France team-mate is unfairly judged due to his £89million price tag. World Cup-winning midfielder Paul Pogba is being judged unfairly at Manchester United due to his £89million transfer fee, France captain Hugo Lloris says. Pogba, who rejoined United from Juventus in August 2016 for a then world record fee, has been criticised this season by pundits and United boss Jose Mourinho. Tottenham goalkeeper Lloris, who won the World Cup with Pogba in the summer, says the midfielder shows his worth with France and “when it matters he is there” for United. “He has a status in the UK, maybe because of his huge transfer fee,” Lloris said on mirror.co.uk. “Sometimes people judge him not very fairly. Now he has more maturity, he knows what he needs to do, he proves...

Meanwhile, a thigh problem saw Lloris sidelined from the end of August. He returned to action in the Champions League defeat by Barcelona at Wembley and for the Premier League victory over Cardiff ahead ...
