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.

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is under more pressure than any other player against Inter Milan on Wednesday evening.

The Frenchman will be playing in his first Champions League game at the stadium since his horror show against Barcelona in October.

 

Lloris was directly responsible for two goals in the 4-2 defeat, which left Tottenham with a mountain to climb in their group.

Spurs have got back on track since, taking four points from matches with PSV Eindhoven. A win against Inter will put them in with a chance of reaching the last 16.

Lloris needs to be at the top of his game for the visit of the Italian side.

After the Barcelona game, Lloris made another error as he was sent off away to PSV, with his season hitting a new low.

Since then, the Frenchman has looked more like himself and has rediscovered his confidence, and started to repair some of the damage.

He was impressive against Chelsea at the weekend and the game against Inter is an opportunity for him to show his troubles are behind him.

Make a mistake which costs Tottenham the game, and their future in the Champions League, and Lloris may not be able to recover.
