Mourinho heaps praise on Lloris

Tottenham were held to a disappointing 1-1 draw By Crystal Palace after Jeffrey Schlupp scored a late equaliser.

Following the result, Jose Mourinho has heaped praises on goalkeeper Hugo Lloris by calling him the best keeper in the world although the Frenchman was at fault for Crystal Palace’s equaliser.

My goalkeeper is the best goalkeeper in the Premier League so I would never be critical of the best goalkeeper in the Premier League, period.

However, the Portuguese manager was still critical about the team’s collective performance.

Daniel Levy interested in a loan move for Alli

Tottenham chief Daniel Levy is said to be only wanting Dele Alli to leave Spurs on loan for around 18 months instead of a permanent transfer. Alli has clearly fallen down the pecking order of Mourinho after hardly making any appearances in the Premier League. PSG are reportedly looking to recruit the former MK Dons star on loan in the January transfer window.

Matt Doherty speaks about his competition with Aurier

Doherty, who moved from Wolves to Spurs last summer, has opened up on his competition with fellow right-back Serge Aurier. Both have been equally impressive with the North London club this season and Doherty has said the competition would bring the best out of each other.

“I love it here. I came here in the summer and we’re fighting it out, driving each other on, whether he plays or I play, we’ve pretty much played half-and-half this season, so we try to get the best out of each other, and any competition is going to improve the team.”
