Hugo Lloris committed a massive howler in the game against Liverpool as the host side climbed back to the top of the table.
It was a day of heartbreak for Tottenham and their fans as they conceded a final minute own-goal through Toby Alderweireld.
Liverpool scored the first goal of the game through Roberto Firmino in the 16th minute, but the visitors equalized in the second half.
Lucas Moura gave Tottenham the equalizer in the game, but the goal was cancelled in the final minute.
Mohamed Salah’s shot was unluckily converted into an own goal by Toby Alderweireld. Hugo Lloris, however, could’ve done better to save the shot.

With this loss, Tottenham stay at 3rd position in the league. The side is now level on points with the fourth-placed Manchester United, who defeated Watford 2-1 on Saturday night.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side risk slipping to fourth position, however, as their North London rivals, Arsenal are only a point behind at fifth place.
Arsenal will play Newcaslte United on Monday night.

Only Jordan Pickford (9) has made more errors leading to goals in the Premier League since 2016/17 than Hugo Lloris (8).

Rico, Lloris, Pickford, Heaton, Speroni should all be getting Premeier league medals if Liverpool end up winning the league. Am I missing anyone?
Has there ever been a team that’s benefited from goalkeeper errors as much as Liverpool?
