Some supporters weren’t pleased with the performance of Hugo Lloris against Wolverhampton Wanderers, with the Tottenham goalkeeper blamed for having a big hand in Saturday’s home defeat. Spurs lost 3-1 to the Midlands outfit which severely dented their hopes of winning the Premier League title, and Lloris took the brunt of the criticism from fans on social media.

The 32-year-old has made 16 Premier League appearances this season, conceding 16 goals and keeping seven clean sheets. He missed a handful of games at the start of the campaign after picking up a thigh muscle strain but returned to star in Tottenham’s most impressive run of form – 10 wins from their last 13 league games.

Lloris has looked human this season, however. He infamously made a howler in the World Cup final for France and has been shaky throughout this campaign since. Fans are arguing that Paolo Gazzaniga should be given a chance to fight for the No.1 jersey as Lloris’ perceived errors on Saturday could prove costly.

Prior to Saturday’s defeat to Wolves, Tottenham had won five on the bounce, most recently thrashing Everton 6-2 and Bournemouth 5-0. Their latest setback comes off the back of having played three games in seven days, and they’ll be due to play again little over 72 hours later – away to Cardiff City. Spurs currently sit second in the table with 45 points from 20 games.
