Tottenham Hotspur have ben prone to the odd mistake at the back this season, with the likes of Kieran Trippier, Davinson Sanchez, and Juan Foyth being the guiltiest defenders.

However, Spurs keeper and captain Hugo Lloris has also had his head in his hands on more than one occasion.

Even before the season started, Lloris had a horror show on the biggest stage in the World Cup 2018 final as he had the ball stolen off his feet by Mandzukic.

He then carried this form into the season for Spurs, rushing off his line in the Champions League to give Coutinho an open goal.

In fact, Lloris has plunged himself into deep water by rushing off his line on more than one occasion, especially in the recent loss to Chelsea which resulted in a Trippier own goal.

However, despite these high profile mistakes, the stats say that Lloris is actually performing extremely highly in general, earning his side way more points than he is losing them.

According to Sky Sports, only Dubravka has a better League consistency rating than Lloris in the Prem, and only Allison has a better shot stopping average.

Lloris has also saved more expected goals this season (6.2) than his top six rivals, with Allison next on 4.5, Leno on 3.8, Ederson on 0.1, and De Gea and Kepa both in minus figures.

Lloris has a save success rate of 74.3%, with 9 clean sheets, and two penalty saves.

He also tops the charts for keeper sweeps, with 18, compared to Allison’s and Ederson’s 16.
