- Hugo Lloris made a shocking mistake to give Arsenal their second against Spurs
- The Gunners won the game 3-1 and Tottenham went back to 10 men
- The French goalkeeper dropped a shot from Bukayo Saka in the path of Gabriel Jesus
Hugo Lloris roared against Arsenal in Saturday’s derby in north London to give the hosts a golden opportunity to lead 2-1 in a pulse-pounding duel.
The French goalkeeper who won the World Cup somehow dropped the ball after an attack by Bukayo Saka from the penalty area, right in the path of a waiting Gabriel Jesus, who tapped home from a meter to his side again to put in front.
Jesus’ goal came just three minutes after the restart, after Thomas Partey’s opener was overturned by a Harry Kane penalty, keeping the game even at half-time.

And fans took to Twitter to add insult to injury, with one fan writing, “I think we can all agree that Lloris is one of the most overrated goalkeepers in the world.”
Another added: ‘I can’t believe how shocking that was from Lloris, throwing it away in a huge game. So damn expensive.’
A third supporter compared him to a Manchester United defender under fire: ‘Lloris is the Harry Maguire of goalkeepers.’

A fourth suggested that Lloris actually played for Arsenal: “Lloris is trying to win the game for us single-handedly… French football still has Arsenal in his heart.”
And a fifth could only ask the Frenchman furiously: “What the hell are you playing at Hugo Lloris bruv.”
A supporter was quick to emphasize that this was not the first mistake Lloris made: “Hugo Lloris has been costing the Spurs for years.”

And a seventh fan suggested Lloris hang up his gloves, adding: “It’s time for Hugo Lloris to step down. He is one of the biggest problems why Spurs conceded goals.”
The World Cup winner’s blunder turned out to be a defining moment in the match. Arsenal took the initiative shortly afterwards and raced to a 3-1 lead within 70 minutes.
And to make matters worse, Emerson saw Royal red after a brash and dangerous challenge on Gabriel Martinelli to leave his side with just ten men.
