    Lloris might make a decent completion rate, but imo his choices are often poor, especially putting teammates under pressure when a long kick would be better. And it goes down as a completed pass when he does this silly little chip out to the full-back that is completely telegraphed...this pass often not easy for the full-back to get under control, meaning the full-back's next pass is done under a lot of pressure and we turnover possession. But nevermind, it goes down as a completed pass for Hugo, so all good, right? Technically, his shank to Sissoko the other day was a completed pass -- I wouldn't wipe my ar5e with that stat.

    Hugo was very good today - we would certainly have dropped points without him.

    So this may sound petty but... his ability to dive the wrong way for almost every single penalty is uncanny. If you were tossing a coin you could never be wrong so often.

    He dived the wrong way for the offside goal too.

    Alongside Lamela he was instrumental in winning us three points tonight.

    At least four top class saves, decisive and commited in key moments too. The Hugo we're all used to.

    Keep it going please Captain Fantastic.

    He was in excellent form before the drink driving imo. Had a bit of a wobble whilst dealing with that, now hopefully he is back on track again. With our sh1te defence, we need him!

    Hugo saves us way more points than he costs us.

    That was an excellent - low to his right, save from Neves but you'd hope he's going to make those when he's making lapses elsewhere. He's always been a top class shot stopper, just a bit ropey with his feet.

    Hugo has played for some sides that have conceded a lot of penalties then

    Players wait for Lloris to move and slot it the other side. Every. Single. Time.

    There is no way it is chance/luck

    Because the whole team performed so well against Chelsea, Lloris's contribution seems to have gone under the radar somewhat.

    But for once the complete absence of any hesitation or uncertainty whenever he was involved was both notable and heartening. Hoping this is a sign that he is at last over his post-World Cup/drink-driving wobbles and that we can now look forward to a more prolongued gaff-free spell.

    Dunno if it was my imagination, but seemed like he kicked long v Chelsea more often than not. Didn't do us any harm, I'm glad we avoided giving them any momentum by playing stupid passes from the back. It's good to build from the back, but in games against good teams, we should play with more pragmatism (and that's what we did v Chelsea).

    No it was not your imagination as we said the same at the game, maybe it was what Poch told him to do and i hope he keeps mixing it up.

    That aligned itself to letting them have te ball where we could press them u to making mistakes

    Worked a treat

    Certainly far fewer short passes than Lloris attempted against Citeh...

    I'm sorry but the second and third goal he was at fault for, he clearly expected them to go wide and fudged it right up.

    Ottawa, actually.
    Second one, absolutely. Third one, deflected off Dier, couldn't do much imo.

    Watching the replay he sort of slides over first then tries to dive when he isn't sure if its going in.

    The deflection only slowed the ball down, he should have got to it.

    He was bad Hugo today, it always costs us when he shows up.
