David de Gea, Petr Cech, Thibaut Courtois. These are the Premier League’s finest goalkeepers.
Hugo Lloris is also a fine stopper, but the Tottenham Hotspur man is far too error-prone to be mentioned alongside the aforementioned trio.
Big mistakes against Newcastle, West Brom, West Ham, Arsenal and now Southampton have cost Spurs dearly this season.
The latest Lloris balls-up gifted Steven Davis an equalising goal at White Hart Lane this afternoon, after Son Heung-Min has put Spurs in front with some rare South Korean wizardry.
Forget today’s mistake for a moment and focus on his previous problems.
Had Lloris not messed up against Newcastle, West Brom, West Ham and Arsenal, Spurs would have at least six more points right now, possibly more.
Had Spurs been marginally closer to Leicester in recent weeks, the Foxes would surely have felt the pressure more and quite likely slipped up more than they have.
