Paulo Gazzaniga was in inspired form for Tottenham Hotspur during their 2-1 loss at Liverpool.
The Argentine who is deputising for the injured Hugo Lloris produced a string of inspired saves in the first half to keep his side 1-0 ahead going into the half time break following Harry Kane’s early opener.
Gazzaniga made an impressive twelve saves to deny Liverpool at Anfield defeat, the most by a goalkeeper in the Premier League since Manchester United’s David de Gea against Arsenal in December 2017 (14) (BBC).
After the match, the 27-year-old spoke to the club’s Spurs TV channel and refused to talk about his own display but instead emphasised that his side had lost and did not have anything further to say.

He proved that he is a more than capable understudy for Lloris and is able to offer Spurs the ability to turn defence into attack with his superb distribution.
If Heung-min Son had managed to tuck away the early chance in the second half, it would have earned Gazzaniga an assist for his brilliant pass.
