The Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper is very happy to have led his team to a 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace in the English Premier League.

The new Tottenham Hotspur’s home is now open.

The Spurs opened their new stadium with a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace on Wednesday’s English Premier League fixture.

And for goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, this was the perfect way to start a new era in his club.

“The main thing, first of all, is the three points – we need to put the context out,” he said to the club’s official website.

“In the league, there are six games to go, four at home and we need to get maximum points.”

“Then we can talk about the stadium. It’s an amazing feeling to play here. It’s a new chapter in Tottenham’s history and we’ve started it in the best way, with a win, which was important after the bad moments we had last month. To start with a good feeling, to have a clean sheet, it’s all positive now and we keep going,” he explained.

“I think it met the expectation of the players and the fans.”

The keeper added: “We’ve all waited so long for the first game ever in the new stadium and we did the job, we made everyone happy but we need to keep going because every game until the end of the season will be decisive and important in the top four race.”

“When you have this type of facilities, the stadium and the training ground, and when you have fans like Spurs fans, you need to be up there every season. Of course, you cannot create success in three years, we need time and we need to build something very strong but we are in a good way, even if we have ups and downs like every top team. It’s important to stay strong with unity until the end of the season and get into the top four.”
