Tottenham Hotspur recklessly showed their qualification for Champions League qualification tonight.
After Arsenal suffered a 2-1 defeat by Brighton in the Emirates, Spurs defeated Aston Villa 4-0 in the Midlands to take a three-point lead over their north London rivals in fourth place in the Premier build league.
Son Heung-min was Tottenham’s hero of the night, scoring a brilliant hat-trick to inspire his team-mate on the day.
However, Lloris was called into action as well, delivering massive saves at crucial moments that set the stage for this mauling.
And Son has paid homage to the France international, a £12million signing in 2012.
He agreed BBC: “Without Hugo we were probably 3-1 down in the first half, Hugo saved us today and it was a great performance from our captain when we needed him and he came and saved every ball. He was incredible.”
Indeed, it was an impressive performance from the former Lyon goalkeeper and that’s how important a reliable goalkeeper can be.
It also shows how massive the lead can be when times are tough and Arsenal were missing players like Kieran Tierney and Thomas Partey in their loss to the Seagulls earlier this morning.
Not that that’s an excuse for the Gunners but they are losing big players at the wrong time and unfortunately for them it very much looks like Tottenham are taking advantage in a massive way.
