Hugo Lloris: Tottenham didn’t deserve to lose to Liverpool
The Tottenham goalkeeper still feels that Spurs deserved at least a point from the Anfield clash
Hugo Lloris insists that Tottenham deserved at least a point from their clash with Liverpool at Anfield last week.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men were beaten 3-2 by the Reds on Merseyside as Spurs failed to follow up their derby win over Arsenal with another positive result.
Lloris, however, feels that Spurs are generally in good form under new manager Pochettino and is confident that the Lilywhites can return to winning ways against West Ham United this weekend.
Speaking in a film for BT Sport’s charitable initiative, The Supporters Club, Lloris said: “We are in good form and in a good way and we are now at the most important period of the season and every point will be decisive for the league.
“It’s never easy when you [Pochettino] start the first season at a new club but I think that he is doing really well and trying to get the best performance.
“We were a bit frustrated after the Liverpool game because I think we deserved a minimum of a point, but that’s football and we lost it – but we want to bounce back and get three points against West Ham.
“We know it’s important for our fans because it’s a derby and we want to keep going the right way.”
Spurs host the Hammers at White Hart Lane as they look for a victory to keep their hopes of Champions League qualification alive.
The north London side are currently sixth in the Premier League table and 16 points behind leader Chelsea.
France international Lloris, 28, has started all 25 of Spurs’ Premier League games this season and played the full 90 minutes in Thursday night’s 1-1 draw with Fiorentina in the Europa League last 16.
Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris features in a new short film by BT Sport’s The Supporters Club. Hugo spends time with Tottenham Hotspur Foundation coach JoJo Clarke to hear his remarkable story and how the club works with looked after children and care leavers in a scheme backed by The Supporters Club and the Premier League. The short film will air on BT Sport 1 on Sunday as part of its live coverage of Tottenham Hotspur v West Ham United from noon.
