Hugo Lloris celebrates as Tottenham keep their title bid on track

By Alex Taylor

Hugo Lloris starred in Tottenham’s 2-0 win over Manchester City on Sunday – and fans took to Twitter to praise the goalkeeper’s performance.

Lloris, 29, pulled off a string of world-class saves to keep his side in the game and put an end to Manchester City’s 100% win record in the league this season.

Spurs went in front through an own goal from Aleksandar Kolarov before a composed finish from Dele Alli doubled Tottenham’s lead after 37 minutes.

The north London shot-stopper then kept City at bay to secure his fourth clean sheet of the season.

Supporters took to social media to praise the keeper for his brilliant display in the fixture.
