Tottenham Hotspur ended their pre-season campaign with an excellent 1-0 victory over north London rivals Arsenal. Son Heung-min scored the only goal of the game as Nuno Espirito Santo’s side won 1-0. Tottenham fans, however, were in awe of a Hugo Lloris first-half moment.
Nuno has yet to lose as Tottenham manager. While that is a statement that rings true, he of course has yet to support a competitive match. The win against Arsenal comes after wins against MK Dons and Colchester, as well as draws with Chelsea and Leyton Orient. The spurs look good, so far.
That is to say, even with the background noise surrounding Harry Kane’s future at the club. There’s just over three weeks left in the window and Kane is staying at Tottenham. Without him, Spurs still beat Arsenal. The late winner of Son Heung-min made the difference, after both sides touched the woodwork.
What do Tottenham fans think of Lloris and his first-half moment?
But Lloris drew attention. The Spurs skipper is under pressure after Fabio Paratici brought in Italy international Pierluigi Gollini on a ready-to-buy basis. Lloris is in the last year of his Â£ 100,000 a week (Spotrac) against Spurs – so he has a lot to play. A clean sheet against Arsenal is a good start.
Tottenham posted another instance of Lloris at the top of their game [above]. Easily grabbing a cross in the box, the 2018 World Cup winner then kicked Lucas Moura with pinpoint accuracy despite pressure from Arsenal players. Tottenham fans have praised Lloris.
