Tottenham fans react on Twitter to heroic Lloris display against Bayer Leverkusen
By London correspondent Tony Hughes
Tottenham fans took to Twitter to hail Hugo Lloris after their team’s 0-0 draw against Bayer Leverkusen on Tuesday night.
Man-of-the-match Lloris made a string of outstanding saves to secure a Champions League point at the BayArena.
The France international superbly kept out Javier Hernandez’s close-range shot, and pushed away low drives from Charles Aranguiz and Admir Mehmedi.
Spurs will be thankful to man-of-the-match Lloris for keeping a clean sheet in a match in which they had more of the possession but their hosts had the better chances.
The former Lyon player made six saves in total, three of which were of the highest quality.
