Arsenal fans react on Twitter to Lloris display in Champions League
By Dominic Toner
Hugo Lloris delivered a man-of-the match performance on Tuesday night and even Arsenal fans praised the goalkeeper on Twitter.
Tottenham picked up a 0-0 away draw at Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League and goalkeeper Lloris made some phenomenal saves to help earn the point.
The 29-year-old pulled off a great stop from Javier Hernandez at close-range and also dealt with several low driven attempts from the German side.
Spurs remain second in their Champions League group as a result and will be thankful to their French international.
The Gunners have a fierce rivalry with north London neighbours Spurs, but even their supporters admitted that Lloris delivered a stunning performance in goal.

Some fans have even suggested that he is better than their goalkeeper Petr Cech and would prefer the Frenchman at the Emirates.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
If there's one player I'd take from Spurs it'd be Lloris, what a player

Lloris is an incredible keeper, would take him any day over Cech, but Chicharito bottled that so badly https://t.co/ldwc1gI5e9

Lloris moved to White Hart Lane in 2012 and has established himself as the club’s number one goalkeeper, with Michel Vorm providing a strong back-up option.
He has made 177 appearances for Spurs since his arrival and kept an impressive 62 clean sheets.
Spurs currently have the best defensive record in the Premier League, conceding four goals from their first eight games, and their commanding goalkeeper plays a major role in their success.
Arsenal face Bulgarian side Ludogorets on Wednesday night in their Champions League group match and will hope to continue their unbeaten European start.
