Boaz Myhill praises Hugo Lloris's unbelievable save for Tottenham

The West Bromwich Albion stopper has praised one of Tottenham Hotspur's key players this season.

West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Boaz Myhill has praised Tottenham Hotspur stopper Hugo Lloris in comments published by the London Evening Standard.

The two men went up against each other on Saturday, with Spurs and the Baggies playing out a 1-1 draw after James McClean had cancelled out Dele Alli’s earlier effort.

Things could have been worse for Tottenham – who have not tasted defeat in their last 14 league games – were it not for Lloris, after he pulled off a spectacular save to deny defender Jonas Olsson in the closing stages.

Tottenham are undefeated in the Premier League since the opening match of the campaign when a Kyle Walker own-goal saw them lose 1-0 to Manchester United at Old Trafford. But they had the French international to thank for their latest point and Myhill for one could not believe what he saw.

“I think I’ve seen the best save I’ve ever seen in real life,” Myhill told the Standard after the match.

“It was an unbelievable bit of quality from Lloris at the end to keep the score at 1-1. I was stood in front of the Spurs fans and I'm kind of half turning around going 'Aren't you going to clap that?' because that's one of the best I've seen."

Lloris has been one of Tottenham's key players in the current campaign and he looks set to play a vital role in any success they have both this season and for years to come.
