Is this Tottenham Hotspur’s alternative Player of the Season?

Hugo Lloris Euro 2012 Penalty

Hugo Lloris has once again been superb for Tottenham Hotspur so far this season.

Harry Kane has been the breakthrough star for Tottenham Hotspur this season, his goals keeping the North London club in the race for a top-four finish in the Premier League.

The 21-year-old has scored 19 goals and created 20 chances in 26 Premier League appearances so far this campaign, while having a pass accuracy of 76% and a shot accuracy of 61%.

Without the England international striker, Spurs would probably not be challenging for a Champions League spot, but there is another Tottenham player who must be acknowledged for a sensational season he is having.

That’s Hugo Lloris.

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

The 28-year-old has made save after save for Spurs, especially in the final minutes of matches, to keep Mauricio Pochettino’s side in the race for the top four.

In 30 Premier League games so far this campaign, the France international has made 2.57 saves per game and 1.88 saves per goal.

True, Lloris has been able to keep only six clean sheets, but that is largely because the defenders in front of him have let him down.
