Tottenham GK Hugo Lloris Horror Show…Conte “Mistakes are sometimes…”
Tottenham ‘Captain’ GK Hugo Lloris (36) produced another unwelcome horror show.
Tottenham lost 0-2 against Arsenal in the 20th round of the ‘2022-23 English Premier League (EPL)’ at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London on the 15th, giving up two goals in the first half alone.
Arsenal increased their chances of winning the EPL with 47 points (15 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss), while Tottenham also widened its gap with fourth-place Manchester United (38 points) with 33 points (10 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses).
It’s a very disappointing move for Tottenham. Dejan Kulusevsky, who returned from injury, and Son Heung-min and Harry Kane attacked, but lost helplessly at home without scoring a goal.
What made Tottenham home fans watching “North London Derby” more thrilled was Lloris’ horror show, in stark contrast to Arsenal GK Aaron Ramsdale’s good defense show.
In the 7th minute of the first half, Nkhedia was allowed to shoot a threatening shot due to poor ball handling. He stretched out his legs and managed to block them, but home fans swept their hearts away.
In the 14th minute of the first half, it finally broke out. On the right side of the box, Bukayo Saka’s cross was not handled properly and committed an own goal. It was partly due to the refraction of the ball, but a Lloris-level goalkeeper could fully respond. Local broadcasters also pinched GK Hugo Lloris, who seemed to complain to someone after making an own goal.
After losing a point in vain, Tottenham conceded another goal. In the 36th minute of the first half, degard, who received a pass from Saka, attempted a bold mid-range shot, and GK Hugo Lloris extended his arm to block it, but the ball was sucked into the corner of the net. Tottenham, which failed to reverse the two goals it conceded in the first half, lost helplessly. It is the first time since 2014 that Tottenham lost to rival Arsenal in a home EPL match.
After the match, Tottenham fans were outraged by the “GK Hugo Lloris Horror Show” and blamed him for the defeat. In the previous home game, Lloris was also criticized for his ridiculous run.
As veterans make frequent mistakes, fans say, “Retire not only from the French national team but also from Tottenham.”
GK Hugo Lloris played for France for about 14 years as the French national team goalkeeper. He is a veteran who has played 145 A matches and achieved the most A matches in France. He also played as the main goalkeeper at the 2022 FIFA Qatar World Cup. Tottenham has also kept the goal for a long time as a “number one” goalkeeper. 안전공원
Knowing this atmosphere, Conte told the broadcaster, “I think GK Hugo Lloris is one of the best goalkeepers in the world. Sometimes mistakes can happen. “The goalkeeper’s mistake is more noticeable,” he said adding, “It is not right to judge only one or two situations.” “Yoris is one of the players who play an important role in the locker room,” he said.
