'He's got to get that': Jermaine Jenas furious with Hugo Lloris as Tottenham lose to Arsenal

BT Sport commentator, Jermaine Jenas, was furious with Hugo Lloris for his mistake in Arsenal’s second goal v Tottenham yesterday.

Lloris seemed to make a hash of an initial cross-shot from Bukayo Saka as he palmed the ball out into his own six-yard box with Gabriel Jesus lurking. And when the ball rebounded off of his own defender Cristian Romero, Lloris then let the ball slip under his body for Jesus to prod home.

And speaking on BT Sport at the time, former Spurs man Jenas was not happy with Lloris, insisting the stopper simply had to do better.

“As soon as that comes over as Lloris gets down to that, he’s got to push that out, he’s got to get that wide of the goal.

“He’s put it right into Romero. What’s Romero supposed to do with that? Fair play to Gabriel Jesus who is right on top of him but he misses a second opportunity to make amends there as well Lloris,” Jenas said on BT Sport comms in the 49th minute.

Lloris did not look happy at all with his role in the goal and looked visibly frustrated at the time. Despite his experience, Lloris didn’t have his best game at all and his mistake proved costly in the end for Tottenham.

TBR’s View: Lloris Will Reflect On This One

There is no doubt that Hugo Lloris, who is said to earn around the £100k-a-week mark, will be thinking about this one this morning. He is an experienced goalkeeper who will know to put mistakes behind him, but this one will have hurt.

It gave the initiative and lead to the Gunners who then never looked back and took an easy enough three points in the end.

Tottenham’s unbeaten run is now over and Antonio Conte will be desperate to get back on the winning trail ASAP.
