Tottenham boss Pochettino tells Lloris: Blame me

Tottenham boss Maurcio Pochettino says he will shoulder the "blame" for Hugo Lloris' howler in their 2-1 win over Southampton.

The France goalkeeper - and 2018 World Cup winner - was inexplicably dispossessed inside his own six-yard area by Danny Ings for Saints' equaliser following a back pass.

"You don't need to blame Hugo, blame me because I demand him to play in that way," Pochetteino said.

"I don't want anyone to blame him; in this action I want the blame because I demand him to do what he was doing."

"He [Lloris] is so strong mentally," Pochettino added. "and of course showed that he wasn't affected by this situation."
