Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has been very error prone in recent weeks.
Tottenham Hotspur fans have had a mixed response to Mauricio Pochettino’s latest comments about Hugo Lloris.
Lloris has come under fire for his performances in recent weeks, with the French goalkeeper’s form erratic.
Lloris has made more errors this season than is usual for him, but Pochettino was quick to jump to the defence of his goalkeeper at his latest press conference.
He said: "For me today he is one of the best keepers in the world and for me there’s no doubt."
Pochettino’s comments suggest that he is not looking to replace Lloris any time soon.
But some of the more ruthless Tottenham fans have become concerned that Pochettino is showing too much loyalty to the Frenchman.
This worries me a bit. It's admirable from Poch but we can't just pretend Lloris isn't having a poor season & made some big errors. Assuming it's a vote of confidence publicly to help Hugo's confidence. If so then fair enuf but it's still a valid concern #THFC https://t.co/EYZ6CVFNW6— Jon Evans (@JontyEvans) April 16, 2018

Blind spot there , Pochy.— Martyn Asby (@MartynAsby) April 16, 2018
I can’t see how he’s improving every season. At the moment he’s costing us a goal a game.— Tottenham Grammar (@PhilYiddo) April 16, 2018
Lloris does still retain some support at Tottenham though, as he has been such a solid goalkeeper for them previously.
How many times have Hugo saved spurs arses he’s just goin through a lil bad patch— Nathan Alison (@nathan_alison) April 16, 2018
He gave us a lot of loyalty when we weren’t doing as well, the bloke deserves serious respect! Yes a few cockups recently but a bloody good keeper— karl heasman (@pixelsofpower) April 16, 2018
We know what Hugo’s like and he’ll save more than he has issues with... he’s our Capo #COYS— Ian Brazier (@Ian_P_Brazier) April 16, 2018
Can’t understand the calls for Lloris to be dropped, how can we expect loyalty from star players if we can’t show them the same in return— Alec Evans (@G00dEvans) April 16, 2018
Lloris is likely to start tonight, when Tottenham take on Brighton & Hove Albion - as they look to bounce back from their defeat against Manchester City.
