Video: Hugo Lloris’ blunder gifts Burnley’s Chris Wood a goal against Spurs

Posted by

In the 13th minute of this afternoon’s Premier League clash between Tottenham Hotspur and Burnley, Sean Dyche’s side were gifted the lead.

Midfielder Eric Dier headed a cross out of the box and into the path of Jay Rodriguez, the former West Bromwich Albion striker fired a speculative effort towards goal.

Hugo Lloris failed to keep hold of the forward’s powerful volley and spilled the ball into the path of Rodriguez’s strike partner – Chris Wood.

Wood made no mistake as he slid to the floor to put the ball into the back of the net.

There was a potential handball by Dwight McNeil in the buildup to the goal, should VAR have ruled out this effort?

Take a look at Lloris’ costly mistake below:
