Tottenham Hotspur star nominated for Champions League player of the week regardless of Leipzig misfortune

Tottenham Hotspur fell to a 1-0 defeat at home to RB Leipzig in North London the previous night, as their expectations of arriving at the next round of the Champions League were dented.

Leipzig managed to win a clean sheet and an away goal at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, giving them a particular advantage heading into the second-leg in Germany.

Spurs were without their two leading scorers in Harry Kane and Heung Min Son on the night, as both expected surgery to fix respective injuries.

The Lilywhites did not have a genuine bite forthright therefore and thought that it was hard to pepper the Leipzig goal, despite home advantage.

The Bundesliga side had no such issues, as they put Tottenham under tension from the word go, firing shot after took shots at Hugo Lloris’ goal.

Notwithstanding the Frenchman, the guests would have doubtlessly taken the lead far sooner than they eventually did.

Thus, Lloris has now been shortlisted as a potential Champions League player of the week.
