Loads of Tottenham fans have been running the rule over Tuesday’s win, and they’re absolutely delighted with the form of Paulo Gazzaniga.
You’d be hard pushed to find a third-choice goalkeeper as good as Tottenham’s Gazzaniga, and the young shot-stopper was superb again on Tuesday night.
The injury to Michel Vorm and suspension for Hugo Lloris handed the Argentinian his first Champions League start, and it’s fair to say he did not disappoint.
PSV went ahead early at Wembley, and the visitors had more than a few chances to put the game to bed.
Gazzaniga was fantastic after conceding the early goal though, even pulling off a cheeky Cruyff turn to leave an onrushing attacker in the dust.
Lloris is the club captain and has been one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League for years, but Gazzaniga’s form simply cannot be overlooked, and fans are calling for the Frenchman to lose his place.

Pick players on form . He’s in form . Deserves the number 1 jersey in my eyes but poch will never drop Hugo

Let him play bs palace, Hugo is a good keeper but it’s about time he understands he is droppable, and competition is good

Totally agree. If Lloris ever left, I don’t think we need to look elsewhere for a replacement. He has done well for us so far.

I suspect he probably isn’t as good as Lloris and this could get proven over a longer run of games but you have to pick players on form. Lloris is woefully out of form, Vorm has never done it and Paulo has played very well. He deserves a run in the team.
