Mauricio Pochettino has come out with statements indicating that goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is happy at Spurs and wants to remain at the club despite rumors linking him to Manchester United.
Should David De Gea choose Real Madrid over staying at Manchester United, Hugo Lloris is rumored to be high on United's list of replacement candidates. It would be hard to blame the France international for wanting Champions League football and the chance at a Premier League title after his time at Spurs has been lacking in either. Pochettino sounds confident that his goalkeeper wants to stay but he may be forced to backtrack later in the summer should a massive offer come Spurs' way from United. Lloris is signed through 2019 so Spurs have some leverage and United are unlikely to pay over the odds for Lloris as he is generally deemed to be in the second tier of goalkeepers behind players like Neuer, Courtois, and De Gea.

Hugo Lloris did his part, coming up with a couple of world class saves, but Tottenham could not threaten much at the other end and they would play to a 0-0 final with Crystal Palace.

Spurs just are not very good. At home, it seems they are somehow worse and supporters at the end of this match let that feeling be known. On a positive note, it seems like the back is starting to gel more, but today's performance did not provide a serious test as Palace were not looking to play an open game. Still, Lloris was the reason Spurs were assured of at least one point, and fans of his services may want to cherish these next few weeks because there are plenty of CL clubs in Europe ready to make him their #1 in the January window.

Hugo Lloris was commanding once again as Spurs picked up an important win and clean sheet against Southampton.

A few years ago Spurs had three players who could be placed in the "world class" bracket, namely Gareth Bale, Luka Modric and Rafael van Der Vaart, but Lloris is the only man close to that description in the current squad. The France captain is having a terrific season so far, with man-of-the-match performance at Arsenal and West Ham already, as well as producing a string of phenomenal saves in Tottenham's other fixtures. Having signed a new five-year contact in the summer, Lloris says he is focused on helping his club finish in the top four, but the hierarchy must fear what could happen if this is not achieved, with a number of Europe's top clubs queuing up to offer Champions League football to the 27-year-old.

The Frenchman made four saves, including one world class stop to deny Stewart Downing, ensuring Spurs kept a clean which gave them the platform to win the game thanks to Eric Dier's late winner. Lloris returned 18 points in the Yahoo game and has one of the best fixtures at home to QPR in Week 2, so he'll be worth considering for your fantasy team.

France XI: Lloris, Debuchy, Varane, Sakho, Evra, Cabaye, Matuidi, Valbuena, Pogba, Griezmann, Benzema

Gunners Olivier Giroud and Laurent Koscielny, who were handed starts in France's win over Nigeria, are not in today's starting lineup but there is plenty of Premier League representation in their defense with Lloris, Matheiu Debuchy, Patrice Evra and Mamadou Sakho all starting.

Hugo Lloris kept a clean sheet in France's 2-0 victory over Nigeria in the World Cup round of 16.

France go through to the quarter-finals at the expense of Nigeria, who are eliminated. The game was evenly matched during the first half but France looked like the better team in the second, especially after they brought on Antoine Griezmann in for Olivier Giroud. The Europeans are at their best with Benzema up top and Griezmann supporting him from the wing. France took the lead in the 79th minute through Paul Pogba and made it 2-0 in added time through an own goal by Joseph Yobo. Griezmann was involved in both goals despite not being credited with an assist. They will face the winner of Germany and Algeria in the quarter-finals.

France looked to have begun making up for the debacle that was World Cup 2010 with a convincing and tidy 3-0 win that saw a clean sheet for Hugo Lloris, Patrice Evra and Mathieu Debuchy.

A Premier League heavy French defense were able to shut the door on Honduras, an easy task once their opponent went down to ten men. Karim Benzema was the hero in attack, responsible for all three goals, though he was only credited with two as the Honduran keeper was credited with an own goal after failing to clear the ball off the line. Meanwhile, fellow striker Olivier Giroud of Arsenal was only given a brief cameo. They will take on Switzerland next, an outright winner from that match will top the group.

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has responded to comments made by Olivier Giroud by ruling out any potential move to Arsenal.

Giroud had been up to mischief in midweek by suggesting Lloris was keen on a switch to the Emirates, but the France captain has rubbished the claims. Lloris stated "I heard about that (Giroud's interview). I think maybe some words were twisted, but it is embarrassing. I don't think that at all, I'm very focused on Spurs' ambition and I am very pleased to play for Spurs. I have too much respect for the club and the Spurs fans to think that kind of thing. Of course I know him very well because we are team-mates in the national team - the same with Laurent Koscielny - but I am a Spurs player and I'm very proud to play here."

Hugo Lloris has told the French press that he is focused on finishing in the top four with Tottenham, but may have to mull over his options if they fail to qualify for the Champions League.

Lloris' form has been erratic at times this season, but he remains one of the best goalkeepers in Europe and will have a key role to play if Tim Sherwood's men are to secure a Champions League spot. The Frenchman made the move to White Hart Lane from Lyon in 2012 and still has two-and-a-half years remaining on his Spurs contract, so Chairman Daniel Levy would be in no rush to entertain any sort of transfer request if the club failed to make the top four.
