Sako Reflects On "Unbelievable" Lloris Save

21 September 2015

Palace winger Bakary Sako has discussed the "unbelievable" save from Tottenham Hotspur's Hugo Lloris, which denied him a goal and the Eagles a point at White Hart Lane on Saturday.

After a slow start, Palace had grown into the game and looked set to take the lead just before half-time, but Yohan Cabaye saw his venomous strike cannon back off the far post and away from danger. After the break, Sako hit the far upright at the other end, when he hit a powerful right-footer towards goal.

Lloris got down well and managed, somehow, to tip the Malian's strike onto the woodwork and behind for a corner, earning his side the three points. 

"Maybe we deserved a point, because we had some chances and their goalkeeper did well to keep a clean sheet today," Sako reflected after the game.

"That was an unbelievable save from Hugo Lloris. He's a great 'keeper and he did very well to keep the clean sheet."

The Frenchman had also denied Sako in the first half with a powerful punch after the winger whipped a crisp free-kick over the wall and towards the near top corner.

"It was hard to get them on one-v-one situations, because their midfielders always came across to help the full-back and that made it tough to take the full-back on," Sako added, when discussing the reasons why Spurs were such tough opposition.
