    The dodgy moment was a really odd one, he basically flapped at a ball going wide to bring it back into play! I wonder if he lost his bearings or thought an attacker was behind him.

    I’ve been a big critic, even before it became fashionable but he’s been mostly excellent since the restart, maybe he needed a mental rest - his kicking is much better too.

    I think his kicking looks better in part because Jose is fine with him almost always kicking long! (As am I)

    I don’t know, people have short memories and forget some of the awful blunders he made when Poch was still manager until November. One of his mistakes led to his injury at Brighton! He’s had a difficult couple of seasons but he’s been much better since the restart. I’d be happy to continue with him provided he maintains this level we’re seeing currently.

    I think he has gone through that difficult late stage in his career that a lot get. I expect him to be steady for the next two seasons.

    Must have been hard to be the world cup winning captain and then come back to league football.

    A very assured performance yesterday from a very good goalkeeper.

    I would say he has made the odd mistake not had prolonged periods or seasons of struggles.

    Sky did a fantastic analysis on him being the best keeper in the Premiership over the course of his time here consistently distorted by the fact his mistakes have come
    In high profile games but they don’t tell the full picture

    “It might then come as a surprise to some that there is no goalkeeper in the Premier League who has saved his team more goals since Opta began collecting their expected-goals data in 2013. Lloris not only stops the shots that other goalkeepers do not, the analysis reveals that he has done so consistently throughout his long Premier League career”

    “The majority of his mistakes are not A typical goalkeeper errors as these come from his feet and being asked to play out where he has had to attempt 1000 more passes than his next rival”

    Looking a lot better since Jose has asked/told him to stop chipping the ball out, seems to have stepped up over the last few weeks. When we used to play around at the back he got into far to many poor decision making which can not help with confidence.

    Like was in the report I read he has had to distribute short balls over 3000 times in his years here, 1000 more than anyone in the same period.

    Does that take into account number of matches played over that period?

    Yeh so it’s based on keepers over the same period so it isn’t say 1000 more than say a Emirates Marketing Project keeper playing half the time.

    You'd be disappointed if your goalkeeper conceded that

    He’s been bloody brilliant since the first lockdown. Really solid. Think we saw in the documentary why he’s captain too.

    He goes under the radar at times, had a poor two years but is now showing why he’s unquestionably our number 1.
