The Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper says he is always focused on the game and doesn’t look at the clock to see the time.

With the scoreboard showing 1-1, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal were minutes away from ending their English Premier League match.

But Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was fouled inside the Spurs area, giving the Gunners a penalty kick.

Aubameyang took his chance, but Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris saved the shot, saving his team one point from the game.

“At this moment of the game, I didn’t think about the time. I still don’t know which minute the penalty save was in,” Lloris told the club’s official website.

“Most important is that we got a result – and we could have even won because we had a big chance on the free-kick after that.”

“I have two feelings – a bit of disappointment because we expected a win, but if you see the context, in the week we lost two games and today we were 1-0 down after 15 minutes, so I think it’s a good result now to stop the bad run,” he explained.

“At the end, it was a bit crazy but we didn’t lose and now we are looking forward to the next period.”

The Gunners experimented goalkeeper will retire at the end of the UEFA Europa League Final.

Thanks to Lloris, the Spurs are currently in the third position of the English Premier League with 61 points, after 20 wins, one draw and eight losses.

“I’m happy with that,” he continued.

“I’m not used to saving a lot of penalties but at least the last two were important and I helped the team to stay in the game.”

Now Spurs is preparing to play against Germany’s Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 second leg, after winning the first 3-0.

Then they will visit Southampton, before visiting Liverpool.
