Mauricio Pochettino’s remarkable defence of Hugo Lloris after his huge mistake vs Southampton

Mauricio Pochettino’s remarkable defence of Hugo Lloris

It was another unconvincing performance, but Tottenham beat Southampton 2-1 on Saturday in the Premier League.

Hugo Lloris won’t forget the Southampton game for a while.

With Spurs leading 1-0, Lloris gifted Saints the easiest of levelers.

The French World Cup winning goalkeeper lost possession of the ball in his area, and Danny Ings had the simple job of scoring into an empty net.

However, when Mauricio Pochettino was asked about the incident after the game, the Tottenham manager defended his goalie with the following statement:

You don’t need to blame Hugo, blame me because I demand him to play in that way.

I am not surprised, we are talking about if not the best, the (top) three or five goalkeepers in the world.

Hugo Lloris keeps making mistakes for Tottenham

Is it time Spurs started looking for a new goalie?

Hugo Lloris just became a dad

Tottenham 2 – Southampton 1

Tanguy Ndombele scored his second goal of the season to fire Spurs into a 24th-minute lead at home on Saturday.

However, Tottenham were reduced to 10 men in the 31st minute, when Serge Aurier collected his second yellow card.

Danny Ings leveled in the 39th, but Tottenham soon regained control through Harry Kane.
