“Lloris’ final straw” – Some Spurs fans fuming at goalkeeper after Liverpool loss

Tottenham crashed to their third defeat in four Premier League games as Liverpool overcame them due to a late own goal.

Pochettino started the game with a back 5, and with Sissoko partnering Alli and Eriksen in the middle, which left a lot of space for Liverpool to exploit.

The Reds did just that as a cross by Andrew Robertson was headed home by Roberto Firmino to give them the lead.

Pochettino switched to a back four in the second half with Vertonghen playing at left back and the change saw immediate results.

Tottenham started dictating the tempo of the match and eventually equalised through Lucas Moura.

Spurs then had multiple chances to get the winner but failed to hit the target, only for Hugo Lloris to make a mistake at the other end and gift Liverpool a winner.

The Spurs skipper failed to hang on to a cross by Salah and parried it on to Alderweiereld who couldn’t adjust his feet in time to stop the ball from going into the back of the net.

Tottenham fans were livid with Lloris’ error. Here’s how some of them reacted to the result on social media:

  1. Lloris is an absolute joke, how many times has he cost us points this season? A simple catch but no he has to push it on to Toby who had no chance. As for Sissoko, he has to go too, clean through with just the keeper to beat to win it and he skies it. The two of them are clowns. Forget top 4, with those two in the team we won’t even get 5th.

  2. Time to give up on the players who will never have that winning mentality – Lloris, Trippier, Aurier, Sanchez, even Eriksen and Alli. None of them can be relied upon. Sorry but it’s true.

    No probs with the likes of Sissoko though. He’s always 7 out of 10 and just cannot shoot, we know this. At least he ran 70 yards in the final 10 minutes to be there; I didn’t see Eriksen or Alli giving that much with their supposed elite talent.
