Thanks to a resilient performance and the reliable Harry Kane, Hugo Lloris was thankful his disastrous mistake didn't cost the game for Tottenham against Southampton.
Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is thankful his disastrous mistake didn't cost the game for his team against Southampton. After leading 1-0 in the first half, and losing Serge Aurier due to two yellow cards, Spurs allowed the visiting team to equalize in the 38th minute.
The France captain collected the ball near his goal line, dithered and tried to beat striker Danny Ings with a deft turn, but Ings dispossessed Lloris and the ball rolled into the net.
Luckily for Lloris, Harry Kane secured a 2-1 win and Mauricio Pochettino's side held on, playing with 10 men for almost an hour.
Meanwhile, Chelsea finally kept a clean sheet under new manager Frank Lampard and claimed a 2-0 win over Brighton. There were also 2-0 wins for Crystal Palace and Wolverhampton Wanderers, along with 2-2 draws between Aston Villa and Burnley, and Bournemouth and West Ham.
