Viewers of this afternoon’s clash between Chelsea and Tottenham have taken to social media to tear into Spurs’ goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.
The two sides are currently locked in Premier League action at Stamford Bridge, with potentially-crucial ramifications in the race for a spot in next season’s Champions League.
Ahead of kick-off, Spurs occupied the final Champions League place, with Chelsea having sat one place and five points adrift of their capital rivals.
As such, a win for Chelsea would see the Blues close the gap to just two points, whereas a Tottenham victory would result in the North Londoners opening up a likely-insurmountable 8-point lead over Antonio Conte’s side.
Your Chelsea team to play Spurs…

The early goings of this afternoon’s clash saw Chelsea work their way into proceedings, with the Blues taking more and more control as the half wore on.
And the positivity of Antonio Conte’s men paid off on the half-hour mark, when Victor Moses’ whipped cross from the right was headed home by Alvaro Morata.
However, while the Spaniard rose well in notching the game’s opener, his finish was made to be markedly easier by the dismal attempts of Hugo Lloris to stop Moses’ cross, with the Frenchman having come flying out of his goal, only to completely misjudge the flight of the ball and leave Morata with an open net to head home into.
And the reaction across Twitter has since been typically ruthless, with many using Lloris’ mistake as an opportunity to question his reputation as a top goalkeeper:
Lloris exposed in another big game. By far the most overrated keeper in the league

Lloris makes so many errors and rarely gets criticized. Don’t understand it. Easily one of the more overrated goalkeepers around.

I repeat, Lloris is the most overrated goal keeper in the world

Massive error from Lloris. Has to clear/claim that if he comes. One of the most overrated keepers of this generation. So error prone. T
