Hugo happy to retain advantage
06 October 2014|Tottenham Hotspur
Humble Hugo Lloris refused to dwell on his match-winning save from Southampton’s Victor Wanyama and instead spoke of his delight that we were able to hold onto our lead on Sunday.
The agile Frenchman hurled himself to his left to beat away a fierce shot from the Saints midfielder during the second half at White Hart Lane, after Christian Eriksen had handed us a 40th minute advantage.
We kept Ronald Koeman’s side at bay for the remainder of the contest, earning our first win in five Premier League matches.
Goalkeeper Hugo was thrilled with the outcome, having compared the game to our recent outings on the domestic and continental stages.
“It’s a good feeling to win the game, especially after the draws against Arsenal and Besiktas where in both games we led 1-0 and conceded a late goal,” said the 27-year-old.
“The result is good for our confidence and now we can go forward into the international break and beyond feeling positive.”
On his latest wonder-save to deny Wanyama, which came hot on the heels of a series of sensational stops in our midweek Europa League clash with Besiktas, Hugo added: “It was one action in the game.
“As I’ve said before, we all try to do our jobs in the best possible way and we always try to be decisive for the team.
“Today I’m really happy because we were strong against a really good team and we had a good win.”
