Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris says not an excessive amount of must be learn into his facet’s lack of ability to win video games at their prime six rivals this season.
Wednesday evening’s 2-0 defeat at Manchester United, which might have been far worse had it not been for Lloris’ heroics, adopted a humiliating 3-1 loss at Arsenal earlier this month and a 2-2 draw at Chelsea, the place Spurs wanted an injury-time equaliser from Harry Kane to steal a degree.
Those outcomes comply with an early sample this season that has but to see any of the large six membership win video games at one other large six stadium.
Lloris, who was ultimately crushed by a deflected Fred effort and a luxurious Bruno Fernandes strike within the second half at Old Trafford, mentioned: “It’s not everything dark and everything bright, it was in between. I believe that the best team today won, that’s the only thing I can say.
“It’s too early to analyse because – I know you’re going to say after Chelsea, Arsenal and now Manchester United – we have to see also when they come to our stadium how it will be. But yes it’s frustrating to lose a tough game.
“I would like to say Arsenal game is on the side because we were all agreed that we missed that game, we were too passive for different reasons.
“Today was not the case, against Chelsea was not the case. You can mention something it’s like we struggle a bit in the final third, to bring the ball into the box, to make the last pass, to create big chances during that type of game.
“We could also see Manchester United increasing the level against top sides like Liverpool, like Arsenal.
“We also miss important players that can affect the game, players like (Dejan) Kulusevski, Richarlison. They are offensive players and in that type of game they can create difficulty to the opponent.
“I think we are capable to play better and you have to also give credit to Manchester United’s performance as today they were the best team.
“We need to analyse the game and continue the process. It’s still a long way and then we have to make sure we get the three points against Newcastle. We have to bounce back straight after a defeat like this.”
It was one other step in the appropriate course for United as they adopted up spectacular victories over Liverpool and Arsenal, even when the win was overshadowed by Cristiano Ronalso petulantly strolling down the tunnel earlier than the top of the sport when it grew to become clear he wouldn’t be approaching.
Ronaldo might have been sulking, however there was nothing to take the enjoyment away from defender Lisandro Martinez, who marshalled Harry Kane and Son Heung-min with ease.
He was rewarded with followers within the Stretford End singing for him and it introduced him near tears.
The former Ajax defender advised the membership’s official web site: “To be honest, it’s very emotional for me.
“I’m at one of the best clubs in the world. This stadium, the atmosphere is amazing. When I heard the fans singing, I wanted to cry.
“This result is for my grandmother and my grandfather, who are not with me now, but I always feel that love with me.”
