Hugo Lloris has admitted that the Tottenham Hotspur players had too much focus on the defensive side of their game during the first half against Chelsea.

The Frenchman believes that due to the decision to sit back and defend, it allowed their London rivals to gain control of the ball.

A baffling decision by Eric Dier to go to ground in the penalty area and try to clear the ball only to bring down Timo Werner proved to be costly with Jorginho making no mistake from the spot to score the only goal of the game.

Tottenham fans had to endure yet another painful 90 minutes in which their side lacked a clear goal threat and at times looked clueless as what to do with the ball.

The captain claimed that his side were unlucky to lose the match after having a couple of good chances in the second half to pull level.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. They must have very big rose tinted glasses at Spurs just now. Claiming that we were the better side against Liverpool at Anfield followed by a similar thread in every game since then, the biggest joke of all, claiming that we were unlucky to lose against Chelsea. We never laid a glove on them and if they had played Giroud we would have been beaten by far more than we were. It is bad enough for us to suffer the turgid football being served up without insulting our intelligence and football knowledge as well.
