‘Great performance’: Tottenham fans heap praise on 32-year-old

The game against Leicester could have swung either way.

Claude Puel’s side were in the game for large parts of it and Jamie Vardy saw a penalty saved by Hugo Lloris with the score at 1-0.

The Frenchman was in fine form between the posts and had one of his better games for Spurs.

A stunning penalty save gave his side the ascendency and allowed them to maintain their strong foothold in the contest.

Lloris is firmly established as the number one stopper at Spurs, whilst he led his country to World Cup glory during the summer.

But for the odd mistake, Lloris is seen as one of the world’s finest goalkeepers.

According to Who Scored, the Spurs custodian was the Man of the Match yesterday, making an impressive nine saves.

Following the win over Leicester, Spurs supporters were out in full force on Twitter.

The club’s army of followers were quick to laud such an impressive performance and in particular offer thanks for the crucial save from Vardy’s penalty.
