No goalkeeper’s record is unblemished, but there are those which are cleaner than others. For every David De Gea there is a Simon Mignolet, for every Alisson a Loris Karius.

For a long time Hugo Lloris ate at the goalkeepers’ top table, and Tottenham considered themselves lucky to have caught and kept a keeper of his calibre.

But over the last few months high profile mistakes have crept into his game – none bigger than during the World Cup final when he attempted to dribble around Mario Mandzukic only to be tackled and the ball to fly into the net.

The mistake was inconsequential, as France preserved their lead, won the World Cup, and watched as their captain, Lloris himself, lifted the trophy in Moscow.

Yet the question marks over the keeper’s reliability persist, and it is those which form the basis for this week’s Three Minute Myths

At the end of last season, which many considered to be Lloris’ worst in a Tottenham shirt, we went to Wembley to ask fans what they thought of their keeper.

And then we compared their answers to the data, with our resident expert, David Perdomo Meza.
