'He's a coward', Bottler - Tottenham fans destroy one player after first-half display v Chelsea
By Richard Parks
Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to destroy Hugo Lloris for his first-half performance in their team’s Premier League clash against Chelsea on Sunday.
The Spurs goalkeeper was made to pay for a major error after 30 minutes when he misjudged a Victor Moses cross and Alvaro Morata headed in the opener for the hosts.
Christian Eriksen equalised for the visitors on the cusp of half-time with a sensational strike from distance that swerved and dipped before evading the grasp of Willy Caballero in goal.
The scoreline was locked at 1-1 at the break as Tottenham attempted to end their wretched run at Stamford Bridge stretching back nearly three decades.
Supporters of the north Londoners were furious at the mistake of Lloris, which is his third one this season that has directly contributed to a goal for the opposition.

Always does it against Big teams. Normally it’s him going to ground to quickly but he always makes mistakes that cost us. Would definitely start consider looking at long term replacements for him in 1-2 years
