Tottenham Hotspur: Fans react as Hugo Lloris makes first team return against Norwich

Tottenham Hotspur: Fans react as Hugo Lloris makes first team return against Norwich - Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur secured a vital three points in the Premier League on Wednesday night, beating basement club Norwich City 2-1 at home (BBC Sport).

It was a big win for Jose Mourinho’s side who closed the gap between themselves and fourth place Chelsea to just six points (BBC Sport). However, perhaps the biggest positive that came from the game was the return to first-team action of goalkeeper and club captain Hugo Lloris.

The French international had been out with an elbow injury since their 3-0 defeat against Brighton & Hove Albion in October, missing a total of 15 Premier League games in a row (Transfermarkt). Paulo Gazzaniga had deputised for him in that time, but managed to keep just two clean sheets in the league in his 15 appearances (Transfermarkt) so having their experienced number one back was certainly positive news for Spurs.

Injuries have been a major problem for Mourinho this season. As well as Lloris being out for a period, Harry Kane has also been ruled out until at least April recently with a hamstring problem (tottenhamhotspur.com) whilst record signing Tanguy Ndombele has managed just 10 league starts due to various issues (Transfermarkt). It is, therefore, a major boost for the Portuguese to have one of those now back and fully fit, as any manager would suffer without their record signing, captain and talisman.

Loads of Tottenham fans were absolutely delighted to see Lloris back in goal after such a long absence, with many taking to Twitter express their happiness that the World Cup winner was making his return to the team. Here is what some had to say…
