ACCESS DENIED: Lloris blocks striker Javier Hernández

Spurs' goalkeeper secures one point with a brilliant save.

Bayer Leverkusen and Tottenham Hotspur fought out a goalless draw in their Champions League Group E match,

Spurs have keeper Hugo Lloris to thank for keeping a clean sheet on Tuesday night.

Mauricio Pochettino looked frustrated on the sidelines as his side played to a stalemate for the second straight game, with his manne wasting their best chances to score.

The visitors were in control of the first half, hitting the woodwork through Vincent Janssen and Dele Alli failed to hit the target with a free header.

Leverkusen were in complete command after the break, squandering half a dozen scoring opportunities themselves.

French keeper Lloris repeatedly came to Spurs’ rescue in the second half, including saving a Javier Hernandez effort on the line.

Pochettino says: “We should thank Hugo.

“Hugo’s save [from Hernandez] was brilliant.

“It was a tough game. In the end I’m pleased with a point. We were better in the first half, they were better in the second.”
