Tottenham Hotspur have had a tough time of it lately, suffering back to back defeats against Burnley and Chelsea over the last week.
In this six weeks previous to these games, Spurs hadn’t dropped a single point in the Premier League, and even beat Borussia Dortmund 3-0 in the Champions League.
This happened to be the six weeks that Harry Kane was out injured, yet on his first game back Spurs lost to Burnley, and his second game back, another loss to Chelsea.
This led to claims that his return had upset the balance of the team.
Hugo Lloris also came under fire for his performance against Chelsea, as he let Pedro’s near post shot squeeze through his legs, the only shot on target in the entire match.
He then came running out to deal with a ball late on in the match, with Kieran Trippier playing it to where he though his keeper should be, resulting in an own goal.
Perhaps they made up for it today though, as Kane scored the equalising penalty against Arsenal, and Lloris saved a last-minute Gunners pen too.
Poch said (Football London): “Yeah but not only bad night Wednesday the whole team, not only Hugo. As you say, you put the finger on Hugo as responsible for the defeat, was not him, I cannot blame him. Hugo is one of the best in the world, he does not need to show that, he cannot prove nothing but the finger always points at the big players, like Hugo or if Harry misses big chances. We don’t win like in the last two games ‘Harry is the problem’ or I don’t know. They are such big players.”
