Lloris eyes Palace response

1st April 2019, 06:43 by Michael Holland

Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has accepted responsibility for his part in Liverpool's late winner on Sunday.

From being spoken about as title contenders in a three-horse race in early February, Spurs are now embroiled in a fight for the top four as Arsenal could go above them into third with victory over Newcastle on Monday.

Lloris was as culpable as own-goal scorer Toby Alderweireld as he palmed Mohamed Salah's 90th-minute header back into a crowded six-yard area to extend their run to one point from a possible 15 since their last win on February 10.

"When you are a goalkeeper you know the responsibility," said the French World Cup winner. "Of course you question yourself and the good thing there is another game in three days (at home to Crystal Palace).

"We need to switch off from today and prepare the next one. That is the best way to forget.

"I don't really know what happened. I tried to catch the ball twice but unfortunately there was no bounce, it bounced straight on the shin of Toby and what happened happened.

"A bit of the luck was on the opponents' side today. It is tough. We gave so much to come back in the game and had chances to score the second goal. It is sad for us."
