Hugo Lloris accepted that he was at fault for Tottenham's defeat to Liverpool as he spilled the ball and his defender Toby Alderweireld contrived to stab the ball past him.

Tottenham were looking to cement their hold on third place after Lucas Moura had cancelled out Roberto Firmino's opener, but the extremely unfortunate own goal meant things turned out otherwise.

"When you are a goalkeeper, you know the responsibility... it's like this," Lloris told Sky Sports.

"Of course you question yourself. The good thing is that you know there is another game in three days, so you need to switch off about [Liverpool] and prepare the next game. I think it's the best way to forget.

"I tried to catch the ball twice but unfortunately there was no bounce, it bounced straight to the shin of Toby. And then what happened happened. The luck was probably on the opponent's side.

"It's tough, because we made so much effort to come back in the game. We had a few chances to score the second goal, but then on a set-piece we conceded this goal. It's a bit sad for us."
