Lloris and Anderson are united as one in a club record

 Lloris and Anderson are united as one in a club record

Yes, Hugo Lloris has equalled Darren Anderton’s all-time record for a single player’s most Premier League appearances. That is after turning out against City on Sunday.

Lloris is into his tenth season with us, having been the club’s captain for most of that time. It hasn’t always been easy for Hugo as he has had several downs, but luckily mostly ups.

Hugo, who is 34-year-old, kept a clean sheet in our1-0 win over City in his 299th Premier League appearance.

Sadly, Anderton suffered from many injuries while at Spurs, so he could have added even more games to his record if things had gone a bit better for him.

However, Darren Anderton still holds the record for the most Premier League appearances for us, an honour that will belong to Lloris if he makes his 300th league appearance for the club against Wolves next week.

Thoughts

Even though Hugo is 34, he isn’t that old for a goalkeeper, and some have gone past their 40th birthday and still played on. So there is no reason why he can’t continue for another three or more years. Last season was arguably one of his best ever for the club, and he does seem to be getting better for us as every season passes. So, 300 appearances if he plays against Wolves; nevertheless,  I wouldn’t be surprised if he goes over 400 appearances for us (well, anything is possible!).

Be safe, Glenn
