Without Lloris, only a sigh… British national team GK poster, ‘2 games, 6 runs’ catastrophe

Tottenham suffered a 1-4 defeat in an away match against Leicester City in the 23rd round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at King Power Stadium in Leicester, England at 0:00 am (Korean time) on the 12th. With this, Tottenham again failed to pursue the top four.

There was a change in the starting list. Lloris, who was injured in the match against Manchester City in the last round, is out. Lloris injured his knee and is expected to miss up to 8 weeks. In place of Lloris, goalkeeper Fraser Foster guarded the net. It was Foster’s second league appearance this season. 메이저사이트

Tottenham took the lead through Rodrigo Bentancur’s early goal. But the defense was a problem. In the 23rd minute of the first half, Nampalis Mendy allowed an equalizer because the ball was thrown backwards in a set-piece situation.

Soon after, James Madison conceded an additional goal in a counterattack situation, and Kelechi Iheanacho conceded another goal in the first half’s extra time. In both conceded scenes, there were problems with goalkeeper Foster’s ability to save and positioning the defense.

Tottenham gave up the 4th run too easily. He shook the Tottenham goal net with just three passes from the half-line to the penalty box. In particular, Harvey Barnes’ shooting was not very strong. It was a shot that the goalkeeper was able to block by throwing himself. Tottenham ended their 4-game winning streak against Leicester with a 1-4 loss in this game.

Foster goalkeeper is a backup goalkeeper that Tottenham ambitiously recruited ahead of this season. He is also a veteran of his England national team career. However, in the two Premier League games in which Foster started this season, Tottenham conceded a total of six points. They drew 2-2 against Brentford earlier, and lost 1-4 against Leicester this time.

The defensive rating against Leicester is also disastrous. Statistical media ‘WhoScored.com’ gave Foster goalkeeper the lowest score of 5.7 points. Eric Dyer, who provided an excuse for the conceding, scored 5.8 points. Both Emerson Royal and Pape Sar, who entered the second half, scored only 5.9 points.
