Sky Sports’ Adam Bate has crunched the numbers on Hugo Lloris and has revealed that the Tottenham captain makes far more errors when he comes up against the other big six clubs.

Lloris has been in exceptional form so far this season but he had an afternoon to forget at the Emirates as Spurs fell to a 3-1 loss, with Emerson Royal being sent off just after the hour mark for a studs-up challenge on Gabriel Martinelli.

The Tottenham number one was to blame for Arsenal’s second goal at the start of the second half as he parried Bukayo Saka’s shot into the danger zone, with the ball falling kindly for Gabriel Jesus to tap home after Cristian Romero failed to clear the rebound.

Bate has now revealed that Lloris has made 21 errors leading to goals in his 344 Premier League appearances, which is an impressive stat, to say the least.

Interestingly, he has made 11 errors in the 91 games he has played against Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea, while the France captain has only made 10 errors in 253 games against other opposition.

These stats indicate that perhaps Lloris does not cope very well with the pressure of big matches. This might also be down to him being tested more often against the bigger teams.

Given that the Frenchman is now 35 years of age, he will be under the microscope and any errors he makes will perhaps be used as evidence that he is past his best. However, I do not think Lloris has shown any signs of decline, and he continues to save us a lot more points than he costs us.
