Tottenham defender Eric Dier shared it was his teammates turn to help out Hugo Lloris in Saturday’s 2-2 with Manchester City.
The north London club fought back from two goals down at the Etihad Stadium with Leroy Sane and Kevin De Bruyne scoring before Dele Alli and Son Heung-min strikes.
A mistake from the usually reliable France international came in the buildup to City’s second, but Dier shared that it was his side’s turn to help the shot stopper.
The England international shared that he believes Lloris to be the best goalkeeper in the Premier League and that he’ll take one error in turn for his top quality saves from the goalkeeper.
“I don’t even want to count the number of times the 10 players on the pitch have made a mistake and he’s saved us,” told Dier to the official Tottenham website.
“It was our time to help him out and thankfully we did that because that’s what he deserves. I’ve said it before, for me, he’s the best goalkeeper in the Premier League and if he makes one mistakes in three seasons, we’ll all take that.”
Lloris completed a move from French giants Lyon in the summer of 2012.
He has quickly established himself as a star in north London and has played in 194 appearances for the club, conceding 213 goals and keeping 67 clean sheets.
The France international has been pivotal to the Spurs team which finished third last season and are currently placed in third this campaign.
Lloris has five years on his contract left and Tottenham fans will be hoping to see a number of his usual displays for years to come.
In other Tottenham news, this would be Daniel Levy’s greatest deal yet.
