Antonio Conte stood and applauded one Tottenham player after moment in second-half v Leicester City

Tottenham Hotspur boss Antonio Conte stood and applauded Hugo Lloris after a moment in the second-half against Leicester. 

Spurs got back to winning ways on Saturday as they thrashed the Foxes 6-2 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The 35-year-old put in a solid display against Brendan Rodgers’ men and did save a penalty at the beginning of the game.

But the penalty was retaken and scored by Youri Tielemans after Lloris’ save was ruled out by VAR due to encroaching off his goal line. 

The French shot stopper could do nothing about both of Leicester’s goals as James Maddison finished excellently at the end of the second-half. 

But once again, Lloris came up big when called upon for his side during Saturday’s game.
