Jose Mourinho refused to blame Hugo Lloris after the keeper’s mistake denied leaders Tottenham victory at Crystal Palace before their top-of-the-table game at Liverpool on Wednesday. This was quite a huge loss for Tottenham as this was their game to win. it is all coming up in today’s review.
Harry Kane put Spurs on course for a sixth win in seven league games with a shot from 30 yards which Vicente Guaita should have saved.But Palace deservedly equalised when Jeffrey Schlupp bundled home after France World Cup winner Lloris could not hold Eberechi Eze’s free-kick.
“My goalkeeper is the best goalkeeper in the Premier League so I would never be critical of the best goalkeeper in the Premier League, period,” said Mourinho.
Palace should be happy with their performance. They did exceedingly well to get that equalizer and restrict Tottenham after a brilliant first half from the hosts. Palace continued to mount the pressure and that is what caused Spurs the 3 points.
So that is it for this game. The match ends in a draw and both teams draw a point a piece. Next up it is Fullham vs Liverpool. Till then, Goodbye and take care.
