Micky Hazard has stated that Hugo Lloris’ positioning was partly to blame for two of the five goals that Everton scored as the Toffees overcame Tottenham 5-4 in the FA Cup fifth round on Wednesday.
Spurs started the game brightly and sailed into an early lead through a Davinson Sanchez header.
The away side then spurned several opportunities to extend their lead before Everton got three quick-fire goals to go 3-1 up.
Erik Lamela got one just before the interval to leave the game poised on a knife-edge going into half-time.
There was yet more calamitous defending in the second half from the home side as Richarlison got in-behind Sanchez and fired into the far corner past Hugo Lloris.
Kane scored a late equaliser to take the game into extra-time but the Toffees prevailed as another shot across Lloris into the far post from Bernard gave them the win.
Hazard took to social media to admit that the defending from Tottenham left a lot to be desired and insisted that Lloris was too far over to his near post for the home side’s fourth and fifth goals.
Can’t legislated for individual errors, all 5 goals mistakes, Lloris too far over to near post on both 4th and 5th goals left the whole goal open for them to hit. COYSSSSS

Lloris’ positioning was a bit off for Everton’s fourth and fifth goals and one can make the case that the Frenchman should have done better for Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s opener.
Part of the reason I felt Lloris over adjusted was because Everton tried to catch him out on his near post a couple of times in the first half.
