The France skipper won the World Cup in the summer, and helped the north London side to all three points
Kieran Trippier hailed Tottenham Hotspur teammate Hugo Lloris as ‘one of the best in the world’ after making several crucial saves to deny West Ham United at the London Stadium.
The France skipper helped his country to win the World Cup in Russia over the summer, but has been in and out of the side in the Premier League due to injuries and disciplinary issues.
After being arrested for drink driving in August, the 31-year-old showed exactly why he is so highly regarded with two fantastic saves to deny Hammers striker Marko Arnautovic late on during their Premier League clash on Saturday afternoon.
Thanks to Lloris, Erik Lamela’s goal just before half time proved to the difference as Spurs hung on to win 1-0 and claim three points and bragging points in the London derby.
And Trippier was quick to heap praise on the keeper for his heroics.
“Hugo is, for me, one of the best in the world” he told talkSPORT after the clash.
“You see him year after year the amount he saves us and the amount of points he saves us.
“Today was no different, I thought he was outstanding and obviously so were the whole team.
“But [he made] crucial saves.”
