Hugo Lloris is one of the best goalkeepers in the world for both club and country, but he hasn’t been in the best of form recently.
The Frenchman currently captains Tottenham and was also instrumental as France won the World Cup in 2018.
He is the undisputed number one at Tottenham and for a good reason, as he has consistently shown good form.
After a shoulder injury last season, he returned to the team and was one reason why Tottenham were early contenders for the Premier League title in this campaign.
However, his form in recent weeks has been terrible and that has baffled Paul Robinson.
The former England number one says Lloris has performed below expectations in recent games, which is very out of character.
He claimed the Frenchman should have done better in the matches against Liverpool and Manchester City, including Rodri’s penalty which he almost saved.
When asked by Football Insider for his assessment of Lloris’ form, Robinson said:
“I think he has been really poor in the last few games, which has surprised me because I thought he looked like he was back to his best.
“He had the shoulder injury last season and since his return he has been fantastic. He has looked strong, agile and confident.
“But the game against Liverpool he should have done better with two of the goals and again at Manchester City he looked nervy and on edge.
“You cannot ever say a goalkeeper should save a penalty but he will be disappointed he did not save the one from Rodri. It hit him in the middle arm.”
Lloris has kept 7 clean sheets in 23 Premier League games this season.
