Tottenham have Hugo Lloris to thank after the France international made a superb save in their Champions League game against Bayer Leverkusen.
Mauricio Pochettino’s team fought hard to a 0-0 draw in Germany - Lloris was man of the match.
It looked for all the world that goal-line technology had erred by not awarding Javier Hernandez a goal after his close-range effort appeared to cross the line.
But replays showed that Hernandez’s shot never crossed the line. Instead, Lloris made a superb save.
You would have paid good money on the Mexican opening the scoring when, waiting just three yards from goal, the ball was squared to him.
Hernandez had the goal at his mercy, but instead of tucking the ball into the corner, his left-footed effort was aimed towards Lloris.
Still, the Tottenham ‘keeper had to react. And he did so in superb fashion, diving low to his right to prevent the ball from crossing the line.
Save of the season? It will be up there.
Lloris’ heroics sparked a brilliant reaction on Twitter.
Pochettino will be delighted to return to England with a point. Tottenham remain second in Group E after CSKA Moscow’s 1-1 draw against Monaco.
