Hugo Lloris admits Son Heung-min’s lackadaisical defending ‘annoyed’ him during Tottenham’s 1-0 win over Everton but insists he has ‘no problem’ with the forward despite their furious on-field altercation at half-time.

Son’s failure to track back allowed Richarlison to get a shot away which almost cost the hosts their lead at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium following Michael Keane’s own goal in the 24th minute.

Spurs’ goalkeeper and captain sprinted 40 yards to confront Son as the players made their way towards the tunnel and their team-mates had to pull them apart as tempers threatened to boil over in north London.

However, the Spurs duo were seen embracing shortly after the final whistle and Lloris played down the incident during his post-match interview with Sky Sports.

‘It just belongs to the changing room,’ the Frenchman said.

‘Outside you can say whatever you want. There is a lot of respect between all the players in the changing room.

‘What happened between me and Sonny is just something that is part of football sometimes. But there is no problem at all.

‘You can see at the end of the game we are more than happy to be part of the team and have these three points.’

Asked whether it was Richarlison’s chance that made him so angry, Lloris replied: ‘Yeah, I think to concede a chance a few seconds before half-time because we weren’t pressing properly… yeah, that annoyed me.

‘But it’s part of football and we move on.

‘As I said before we are in a situation we need to fight against. We are not happy to be in this position.

‘The most important thing today is to stay focussed for the team and do everything to finish as high as we can. We can only do it as a team.

‘When you play a season like this one, it’s very easy to fall apart as a team, but today we showed that we’re still together and ready to fight and compete until the end.’

The result saw Spurs leapfrog Burnley and Sheffield United into eight place in the Premier League table and Lloris is determined to end the season on a high after a frustrating few months for the club.

‘There’s still five games to go,’ the Tottenham skipper added.

‘Let’s finish the season in a good way and then analyse the season later.’
