Tottenham fans react to Hugo Lloris's performance

Hugo Lloris is coming in for fierce criticism from Tottenham Hotspur fans.

Hugo Lloris of Spurs looks on during the Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Southampton at Wembley Stadium on December 26, 2017 in London, England.

It's probably fair to say that Hugo Lloris endured a difficult evening in Tottenham Hotspur's trip to Crystal Palace tonight.

The World Cup-winning France goalkeeper, who made a mistake in the final against Croatia, has had a pretty disastrous season so far by his own high standards, but his display at Selhurst Park might've exacerbated the issue.

The Tottenham star looked in trouble within only nine minutes of kickoff following an unconvincing attempt to clear a corner, and then flapped at another cross early in the second half.

Spurs survived on both occasions - just about - but many fans of the North London club are growing increasingly concerned by the former Lyon ace.


Here is their reaction to his performance:

It must be noted that the Frenchman pulled off some fine saves late on to preserve the 1-0 victory, but you also wonder if Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino might bring in Paulo Gazzaniga for the visit of Chelsea after the international break.

As good as Lloris was toward the end, it doesn't cancel out his earlier errors and that's a big, big concern going forward.

Gazzaniga, who started on the bench tonight, has been immense when Pochettino has called on him in recent weeks and it seems only a matter of time before the Argentine keeper is given the nod over Lloris in a Premier League game.
