Lloris reflects on Saints win but it's not his save that made him happy

Hugo Lloris

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has been on good shot-stopping form of late but he has proclaimed the team performance to be more important.

Hugo Lloris, currently away on international duty with the France national football team, has reflected on Tottenham Hotspur's recent form but, rather than talk-up his own highlight-reel performances, the 27-year-old has focused on the team effort.

Since dropping a 1-0 loss at home to West Bromwich Albion, Spurs have overseen Nottingham Forest by a 3-1 score in the third round of the League Cup, returned from the Emirates Stadium with a point in the Premier League, drew with Besiktas in the Europa League and edged a win over Southampton.

One of the constants throughout Tottenham's recent results has been the individual performance of Hugo Lloris, who kept the Lilywhites in the game against the Turkish heavyweights last week and denied Victor Wanyama for the South Coast club yesterday.

He told the club's official website: "It’s a good feeling to win the game [against Southampton], especially after the draws against Arsenal and Besiktas where in both games we led 1-0 and conceded a late goal.

"The result is good for our confidence and now we can go forward into the international break and beyond feeling positive."

Regarding his ability to stop seemingly strong shots, Lloris said: "It was one action in the game. We all try to do our jobs in the best possible way and we always try to be decisive for the team."
