Lloris makes huge clanger to gift Arsenal lead as Spurs fans beg him to retire

Tottenham fans have asked Hugo Lloris to retire from club football having called time on his France career after his latest blunder gifted Arsenal the lead.

Mikel Arteta's side led in the north London derby on Sunday afternoon (January 15) after it took a slight deflection and was spilled backwards into the net.

With it going down as an own goal, an increase in mistakes made by the 36-year-old in recent seasons has seen the stopper lose the support of many of his former fans.

Saka's cross took a defection off the boot of Ryan Sessegnon which changed the flight of the ball – with Lloris spilling it into his own net to shock even the away support.

One Spurs fan posted: "Lloris you can retire from all football now."

A second said: "Lloris just retire. Letting us down for years."

A rival fan then wrote: "Lloris was once a world class goalkeeper, but these errors are just too frequent now. Definitely on the way down."

A second said: "Hugo Lloris is so s***. Massively overrated and I’ve been saying this for ages."

On commentary, Gary Neville was just as critical as social media as he questioned why the veteran stopper made such a blunder.

He said: "That's just so poor.

"He started shakily with feet and he's followed it on now with his hands. Some may say there's a deflection there that may cause him more of a problem, but it's not good enough."

Arsenal came into the game as favourites as they looked to create a lead of eight points in the Premier League table, grabbing a second goal from Martin Odegaard before the break.
