Mauricio Pochettino admits that he is delighted to have Hugo Lloris as part of his Tottenham Hotspur team.

Lloris has established himself as one of the Premier League’s top goalkeepers, and his reputation continues to grow.

The French stopper was in magnificent form yesterday evening, as he helped Spurs pick up a 0-0 draw with Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League.

Lloris made a staggering point-blank save from Javier Hernandez to ensure his side kept a clean sheet against the Bundesliga side.

And Pochettino was full of praise for his goalkeeper after the match. He said: "Hugo's save was brilliant. He's one of the best, that is my opinion. It's great to have him in goal.”

Spurs’ draw against Leverkusen has put them in a strong position to qualify from their Champions League group.

The Lilywhites are currently in second place in the group standings, with two home games left to play.

Tottenham’s next European match comes against Leverkusen in November at Wembley stadium.

Spurs return to domestic action at the weekend, when they take on Bournemouth at Dean Court.
