Tottenham fans took to Twitter to slate the performance of Hugo Lloris during the 3-0 defeat against RB Leipzig on Tuesday night. 

Spurs crashed out of the Champions League with a heavy defeat at the Red Bull Arena, as the French goalkeeper struggled throughout the game in Germany, earning a disappointing 6.15 rating for his performance, as per WhoScored. The World-Cup winning ‘keeper was arguably at fault for both first-half goals, as Marcel Sabitzer’s shot slipped under him before the Austrian beat him again at his near post with a header.

The 33-year-old spent much of the early season out injured, after dislocating his elbow in a 3-0 defeat at Brighton, meaning that the game in Germany was just his fourth appearance in the Champions League this season. The Frenchman has struggled in Europe, averaging a disappointing 5.96 rating in the competition.

Is Lloris past his best?

Who is Spurs' top scorer in all competitions so far this season?

These Spurs fans clearly weren’t impressed with Lloris’ performance in Leipzig and feel that his mistakes seriously cost their side.

What do we think?

Lloris, who is valued at £16.2 million (as per Transfermarkt), arguably should have done better for Leipzig’s first two goals and with the Frenchman performing poorly in the Champions League once again, perhaps Spurs should look to replace him in the summer.
