Mourinho urged to replace Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris after dip in form

Former Tottenham player Glenn Hoddle has urged Jose Mourinho to think about replacing Hugo Lloris in goal (h/t Express). The Spurs custodian has endured a bit of patchy form this season which has directly coincided with Spurs’ downturn in league form.

In the clash against Liverpool, Lloris directly parried the ball into Trent Alexander-Arnold’s path from which the Liverpool man scored. He drew further criticism for his error in the Everton game in dealing with Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

Finally, another underwhelming performance against league leaders Manchester City prompted Glenn Hoddle to speak out on the situation. (via BT Sport h/t Express)

“He is having a poor time at the moment, you have got to say. The two goals we have analysed there [vs Manchester City], he was at fault. Here [vs Liverpool] he is at fault. That has got to go out for a corner. He is on the back-foot all the time. Here he just gets outdone for power [vs Everton].”

Hoddle said that the entire defense’s confidence is low at the moment but pointed to Lloris who is struggling badly. He added that there was no other keeper who can come in place of Lloris, put pressure on him and that Mourinho does not see Joe Hart as a viable option in big games.

When quizzed if Tottenham should consider bringing in a new goalkeeper, Hoddle said:

“Possibly. I would be looking at it, without any shadow of a doubt, unless Lloris gets back to the form that he can. At this moment in time there is a little bit of a pattern developing.”
