Tottenham do not intend on lining up a replacement for Hugo Lloris, despite the goalkeeper making another costly error against Liverpool on Sunday.

The Frenchman has come under a lot of scrutiny throughout the season after accumulating a lot of mistakes which have led to goals for the opposition. Although he is not solely responsible for Spurs' recent poor form in the Premier League, Lloris' spot as goalkeeper has been questioned with the summer transfer window looming.
However, it is understood that manager Mauricio Pochettino still backs the world cup winner to maintain his role in the side according to the Daily Mail. The reasoning behind this seems more to do with financial priorities than genuine trust in Lloris' ability, given that since his Premier League debut he has made 16 errors leading to goals.

Perhaps something that has been overlooked is the potential of Spurs' second choice goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga. The 27-year-old has made ten appearances in all competitions this season and has look assured between the sticks when deputising for Lloris.
