Defender Dawson feels Lloris missing out on Tottenham recognition

Tottenham defender Michael Dawson is of the belief that goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has not received the recognition he has deserved lately.

The Frenchman was a massive reason as to why Spurs beat West Ham United 3-2 on Monday night but it was two-goal hero Gareth Bale who took all the adulation.

Dawson feels that Lloris, who made a couple of vital saves including when he denied Matt Taylor who was through on goal to make it 3-1, should get some of the plaudits for the victory.

"One guy I want to mention is Hugo," Dawson told the club's official website.

"He pulled me out of jail when I played Matt Taylor onside. He's got a real shiner for it as well!

"That was massive. It was 2-1 at the time and at 3-1, it's probably game over, certainly in terms of winning.

"It would be hard to come back from there, but Hugo made a tremendous save and he did the same in the first half as well."

He added on Lloris: "Hugo has certainly settled in well, he's been brilliant since he's been in the team and he deserves a massive mention as well."
