United manager Mourinho has praised Lloris for his performance for Spurs at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

"I think Mkhitaryan was man of the match but if you have a trophy for a second, give it to Hugo Lloris,” Mourinho told The Mirror. "The save he makes after 50 seconds is a 'goal save' and then another and then another.”

Lloris is one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League and is a genuinely world-class player.

The 29-year-old played well against the Red Devils, and Mourinho’s opinion of the Frenchman’s display will be shared by many.
