Football London journalist, Alasdair Gold has argued that Hugo Lloris has been getting ‘better and better’ this season between the sticks for Tottenham.
While the likes of Ederson and Alisson are often discussed as the top goalkeepers in the Premier League, Hugo Lloris has performed at a consistently high standard for Spurs over the past decade.
While he has no trophies to show for his efforts, the club captain has certainly led by example in the Spurs jersey, arguably playing his best football over the past few seasons.
Gold has now claimed that, other than one below-par game against West Ham, Lloris has improved game-by-game for the Lilywhites, pulling off a number of key saves at big moments.
The Frenchman is currently suffering from a small thigh injury, which saw him pull out of his national squad last week, although Spurs will be hoping to get him back as soon as possible (Football London).
When asked to give a rating out of ten for Lloris this season, Gold opted for an 8.5 (the joint-highest rating) and said (Football London): “Other than a shaky game against West Ham with some poor kicking, Lloris has got better and better as the season has worn on.
“With some top drawer saves in the matches against Sporting and Leicester.
“Spurs will be hoping the small thigh injury that has kept him out of France’s two matches this fortnight is no more than that.”
Spurs Web Opinion:
Hugo Lloris has been severely underrated in the Premier League for years, purely because he hasn’t lifted a trophy. Unfortunately, these days people only seem to judge a player on silverware, ignoring talent and context.
