Clement Lenglet lavishes praise on Tottenham Hotspur captain Hugo Lloris after Fulham win

Tottenham Hotspur defender Clement Lenglet has lavished compatriot Hugo Lloris with praise after the captain’s performance against Fulham. The captain made a couple of brilliant saves to deny Alexander Mitrovic from scoring.

Lloris made his way to North London in 2012 from Olympique Lyon. Since then, the 35-year-old has become one of the best goalkeepers in the world.

Speaking after the win over the Cottagers via The Mirror, Lenglet was not surprised to see Lloris come up trumps when Spurs needed him the most. The World Cup winner saved a shot from Fulham’s Serbian striker in the dying minutes to preserve Tottenham’s lead.

“This is the definition of Hugo Lloris, no? He is always present when we have a bad moment and when we are in difficulty.

“He showed all his quality on this save and we are very happy to have Hugo behind us.”

Spurs took the lead in the 40th minute, with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg making his way into the box and slotting the ball past Bernd Leno. Harry Kane doubled our lead in the 75th minute.

However, Mitrovic clawed a goal back for our London rivals in the 83rd minute with a brilliant strike curling into the top of the net. Lloris had no chance of coming near it.

But our captain made sure that Tottenham took the three points. In the 88th minute, a looping shot from the Serbian centre-forward that deflected off of a Spurs defender was tipped over by the 35-year-old.

Tottenham remain unbeaten in the Premier League this season and Lloris has played a huge role in keeping the opposition at bay. The World Cup winner has started the 2022/23 campaign in fine form.

Lenglet also made his first start for Antonio Conte’s side. The France international replaced Ben Davies in the back three and put in a decent display as well.

With six games played, we remain a point off the top in third place. Our North London rivals Arsenal are first at the moment. However, Tottenham have shown grit and desire up until now to not lose any game. Hopefully, our run continues against Manchester City on 10 September.
