Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Mousa Dembele heaped praised on goalkeeper Hugo Lloris for his performance during his side’s 3-1 win over Fulham on Saturday.

The French international was in the thick of things on the field against the Cottagers and dived to the right to save a Steve Sidwell spot-kick just 13 minutes before the final whistle, as the Lilywhites bagged an important three points at White Hart Lane to keep them sixth in the league table, six points ahead of seventh-placed Manchester United.

Dembele credited the shot-stopper for his contribution in the win and was delighted with the overall result.

“He’s unbelievable”, the Belgian international was quoted as saying by Spurs’ official site.


“He’s one of the best goalkeepers I know and it’s a pleasure to work with him.

“He made some great saves against Fulham and contributed to our overall performance”, the 26-year-old continued.

“We’re all happy with the result as we played very well.”

Tottenham are battling with Manchester United for a Europa League spot and will be hoping to maintain their claim when they take on Stoke City, West Ham United and Aston Villa in their remaining fixtures over the next few weeks.
