“Very underrated”: Arsenal legend believes this Tottenham ace does not get the credit he deserves

Paul Merson believes Tottenham Hotspur star Hugo Lloris is massively underrated

According to 90min (h/t Football.london), Arsenal legend Paul Merson believes Tottenham Hotspur captain Hugo Lloris is underrated.

The French international is one of the finest goalkeepers to feature in the Premier League. He joined Spurs in 2012 and has since made 378 appearances for the club, keeping 129 clean sheets. Despite turning 34, he is a regular in the Tottenham side and has featured in all five Premier League games this season.

Lloris remains Nuno Espirito Santo’s first-choice goalkeeper and has already had to make 19 saves this season. It is fair to say that the team’s recent two losses could have been much worse had it not been for the Frenchman.

Hugo Lloris is a colossus on his day

Despite performing consistently for nearly a decade, Merson believes Lloris does not get the credit he deserves. The point came up when Merson and Jamie O’Hara were picking a combined XI for the North London derby.

“I don’t think he gets the credit he deserves, I think he’s very underrated.”

A world cup winner with France, Lloris remains a dependable player not just at the club level but also for Les Bleus. He has 132 caps for the French national side, an incredible feat given the talent at their disposal.

“They don’t talk about him in the same bracket as Ederson, or Alisson, but for me I think he is a top goalie and he makes big saves.”

Hugo Lloris remains a world class player.

The veteran will be the best goalkeeper on the field when Spurs take on Arsenal on Sunday. Nuno Espirito Santo’s Spurs have found themselves on the wrong end of results the last two times and will be seeking to get back to winning ways.

The North Londoners have shown themselves to be susceptible at the back and will need Lloris to turn up if they are serious about beating Arsenal. The Gunners despite their own troubles can pack a punch and we will need our last line of defence to hold firm.

Lloris’ contract runs out at the end of the season and it remains to be seen if he will pursue a new challenge elsewhere. If he does choose to leave, it will draw the curtains on what will have been one of the best stints by a foreign player in the English top flight.
