Tottenham Hotspur media round-up: Pochettino calls club 'lucky' to have Lloris

White Hart Lane

A round up of news stories this morning related to Tottenham Hotspur.

Mauricio Pochettino has told the Tottenham Hotspur website he was pleased with the win against Swansea last night.

Spurs reacted well to the setback of the League Cup defeat last weekend to secure three points in their push for a top four place.

Pochettino singled out a key save from goalkeeper Hugo Lloris towards the end of the match as key to the victory.

“We played well, it was a great performance and congratulations to the players although it was a strange feeling at the end with that big save from Hugo,” said the boss.

Pochettino has admitted, as quoted by the BBC, that his team are lucky to have Lloris, who has been one of their most consistent players this season.

Lloris also plays a vital role as a vice-captain at White Hart Lane and has shown his leadership ability on several occasions this season.

“He (Hugo Lloris) is one of the best in the world and we are lucky we have him with us,” he said.

There has been speculation that Lloris could leave this summer if Tottenham don’t secure Champions League football.

The Metro claims Tottenham Hotspur are toying with the idea of selling two players to secure a move for Alexandre Lacazette.

The Lyon forward has been linked with a move to the club, but the paper suggests that other players need to leave first.

The players in question are strikers Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado who have both struggled so far this season.
