Newcastle key now - Hugo
07 December 2015|Tottenham Hotspur
Hugo Lloris was looking ahead just half-hour after the final whistle at The Hawthorns.
Our number one and skipper made a trademark, fantastic save to keep West Brom at bay in the second half as it ended 1-1 in the Black Country on Saturday.
That stretched our unbeaten run to 14 matches in the Premier League but Hugo was only thinking about Newcastle at the Lane on Sunday when he emerged from the dressing room.
“It was really difficult to develop our style as usual,” said Hugo. “But you know, sometimes you need to keep fighting and try to do your best not to lose, and that’s what we did.
“The spirit is great and now, to get the benefit of the draw against Chelsea and this draw, we need to take three points against Newcastle.
“It’s difficult to retain anything from this performance and from his game because, honestly, it was very tough on the pitch. We need to look forward.”

Typically of the man, Hugo was happy to gloss over his point-blank save to deny Jonas Olsson in the second half.
But Spurs TV weren’t letting him get away with it!
“It was just a moment’s decision,” he added. “I took the decision to stay on my line and I was able to push the ball over the bar.
“It’s always good when you can contribute to the team getting points.”
