Tottenham Hotspur’s Christian Eriksen: Hugo Lloris is ‘world class’

Hugo Lloris Euro 2012 Penalty

Christian Eriksen speaks highly of Tottenham Hotspur teammate Hugo Lloris.

Tottenham Hotspur playmaker Christian Eriksen has described his teammate Hugo Lloris as a “world-class” player to Spurs TV.

The Denmark international made the comments following Spurs’ 3-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion away from home in the Premier League on Saturday.

It was a pretty comfortable win for Spurs, but once again Lloris had to make crucial saves for the North London outfit to pick up all three points.

The France international goalkeeper made a total of four saves against West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns.

Lorries made vital saves to keep out James Morrison and Claudio Jacob when Tottenham were 2-0 up, leading Eriksen to heap praise on the 28-year-old.

“Hugo is always there when we need him, he’s a world-class goalkeeper and he showed it again,” the former Ajax star told Spurs TV.

Lloris is one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League and arguably the only world-class player in the Tottenham squad.

The former Lyon star has made an average of 2.65 saves per game in the Premier League so far this season, keeping six clean sheets in the process.

With Lloris, Tottenham would have conceded more goals than they have. Not only is the Frenchman great at stopping shots, but he also knows how to lead from the back.

With Arsenal due to visit White Hart Lane on Saturday, Spurs will need Lloris to be at his best. With the Gunners scoring goals for fun, the former Nice star could prove to be the difference between winning and losing for Tottenham.
