Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Lloris' display vs Fulham - "Please don't let him go!"

Spurs recorded a much needed win with a 3-1 victory over strugglers Fulham at White Hart Lane this afternoon.

After a miraculous yet disappointing 3-3 draw at West Bromwich Albion last weekend, Tottenham needed a result to try and keep the pressure on Arsenal and Everton in the hunt for a Champions League place, and that's what they got against relegation-threatened Fulham.

Paulinho gave Spurs the lead before Steve Sidwell hit back just two minutes later for Fulham, but goals from Harry Kane and Younes Kaboul sealed the three points for manager Tim Sherwood.

But the big talking point in the game came with Spurs already 3-1 up, as Fulham won a penalty, giving them a chance to get back into the game. Sidwell stepped up to double his account, only for Tottenham stopper Hugo Lloris to pull off an outstanding save in a performance that kept Spurs in front.

His superb display was praised by Spurs fans on Twitter, who were pleading with chairman Daniel Levy not to sell the French international, who has attracted interest from a number of clubs, as some suggested he is the best goalkeeper in the Premier League after today's outing.
