Lloris admits Spurs got smashed in North London derby

Tottenham Hotspur captain Hugo Lloris has admitted that his side got smashed in the North London Derby following their 3-1 loss to Arsenal on Sunday.

Spurs looked a pale shadow of themselves in the derby after conceding three goals in a span of half an hour. Emile Smith Rowe gave the Gunners a 12th-minute lead before captain Aubameyang doubled the hosts' tally in the 27th minute.

Bukayo Saka added a third in the 34th minute and while Son Heung-min pulled a goal back late on, it was too little too late for the visitors at the Emirates.

Speaking after the game, Lloris said: "We lost complete control in the first half. We got smashed and then had a good reaction.

"It's frustrating and very disappointing. It's the moment to stick together and carry on. The players were ready but we lost a bit of control. We lost balance in the middle of the pitch."
