Football fans aren’t so picky and reactionary that they demand key players are dropped after one poor display, well most of them aren’t anyway. As far as Tottenham fans go, though, the calls for Hugo Lloris to be dropped are as a result of a number of errors, and yesterday’s howler to hand Liverpool all three points is now one too many.
As a result of his fumble, dropping a routine header from Mo Salah into Toby Alderweireld, who could do nothing as he watched the ball roll over the line, it meant that the Lilywhites have now managed just one point out of their last available 15. That’s relegation form at best and it looks like things could get worse too considering they have their first of a trio of clashes against Manchester City just a matter of days away.
For those games, the Tottenham faithful would love it if Paulo Gazzaniga could be their man. The Argentine has made a name for himself this season, starring in a number of wins and looking solid in the process. As a result of that form, there would be very few complaints should the 26-year-old start in two days time against Crystal Palace, and if he doesn’t start there will be plenty of agitated home fans.

If Gazzaniga isn't playing on Wednesday questions need to be asked of Poch.

Gazzaniga deserves his chance, too many mistakes too often by Lloris https://t.co/MK9uFOZLem

How does anyone justify him still being our no.1? If i was Gazzaniga id be fuming, not put a single foot wrong all season and sits behind that shower of shit. Poch’s refusal to drop him or replace is cowardly. Guy is a waste of 100k pw

Gazzaniga deserves to start in CL He has been solid whenever he plays. If Eriksson doesn't step up we won't get £50k for him

If Gazzaniga can't get in the team now when will he ever? Chuck him in and give Kane the captaincy.

The Lilywhites have all been pretty clear that they’ve had it with their skipper and with a ready-made replacement in Gazzaniga, who can blame them for calling for a change?
