first_imgHugo Lloris breaks his silence over major blunder in Tottenham’s defeat to Liverpool Hugo Lloris’ blunder cost Spurs a point against Liverpool (Getty Images)Hugo Lloris has admitted that he has questioned himself since Tottenham’s costly 2-1 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday after his error led to the winning goal.The Frenchman failed to hold Mohamed Salah’s tame header as the game went into injury time and was only able to parry it onto Toby Alderweireld’s shins with the ball subsequently going in off the Belgian.In the aftermath of that defeat – Spurs’ fourth in a row away from home – there have been calls for Lloris to be dropped from the team and for his understudy Paulo Gazzaniga to be given a chance to prove his credentials.AdvertisementAdvertisementHowever, Lloris has insisted that the game against Liverpool is now in the past and he is fully focused on Spurs’ next game against Crystal Palace at their new stadium on Wednesday.ADVERTISEMENT Comment Lloris and Alderweireld look on in horror as the ball trickles over the goal-line (Getty Images)‘When you are a goalkeeper, you know the responsibility. It’s like this,’ he told Sky Sports.‘Of course, you question yourself. The good thing is that you know there is another game in three days, so you need to switch off about [Liverpool] and prepare the next game. I think it’s the best way to forget.‘I tried to catch the ball twice but unfortunately, there was no bounce, it bounced straight to the shin of Toby [Alderweireld]. And then what happened happened. The luck was probably on the opponent’s side.‘It’s tough because we made so much effort to come back in the game. We had a few chances to score the second goal, but then on a set-piece we conceded this goal. It’s a bit sad for us.’More: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man CityA month ago, Spurs were considered outsiders for the Premier League title, however, a run of four losses and one draw in their previous five games has seen them slip alarmingly down the table.Arsenal’s 2-0 win over Newcastle on Monday meant they leapfrogged their north London rivals into third position, while Manchester United are level on points and Chelsea just one behind Mauricio Pochettino’s side in fifth and sixth respectively.The victory for Liverpool, meanwhile, ensured that they went two points clear of Manchester City at the top of the table although Pep Guardiola’s men have a game in hand against Cardiff City on Wednesday.More: Manchester United FCRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starNew Manchester United signing Facundo Pellistri responds to Edinson Cavani praiseEx-Man Utd coach blasts Ed Woodward for two key transfer errors Advertisement Advertisement Metro Sport ReporterTuesday 2 Apr 2019 9:49 amShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitterShare this article via messengerShare this with Share this article via emailShare this article via flipboardCopy link112Shareslast_img
