Argentinian goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga had almost become a forgotten man at Tottenham Hotspur but following the injury to accepted Number 1 Hugo Lloris, plenty of fans were hoping the 26-year-old would get his chance ahead of Number 2 Michel Vorm.
That didn’t happen for a few games and old complaints about Vorm came out in the fanbase – whether you think they were a fair reflection on his performances of not – but with Vorm also suffering an injury, manager Mauricio Pochettino had to turn to the man he brought to the club from Southampton back in August 2017.
He hasn’t let anyone down yet either.
Having kept a clean sheet on his debut against Crystal Palace back in November 2017, he’s yet to repeat that trick in his two games in 2018/19 but plenty feel it’s only a matter of time as he’s performed well and continued winning fans over.
Not least his showing against Watford last night where he more than played his part in our victory by saving two of their penalties.
Heir to lloris in the future

Decent on the deck as well. Composed. Newer generation of keeper I guess.

He's is better than the two goals he conceded and if he plays more is sharpness will get better 3 games in 8 month is not a lot he's had a clean sheet one two goals lets hope next one is zero but he is now no2 he could take us to 1st Cup final under Poch

Genuine question : What does Lloris do better than Gazzaniga based on the last 2 games weve seen?

1st choice, I’m Hugo’s biggest fan but Gazza hasn’t put a foot wrong in a spurs shirt yet&should retain his place until his form drops off. If a back up striker was coming into the side and scoring goals each time he played, chances are he starts games until he stops scoring.

Should be backup – don't trust vorm at all

Replacing Lloris is a step too far after such few games, but being the established No 2 shouln’t really be out of the question.
