CHRIS SUTTON: Wait until the dressing room if you want to chin someone

CHRIS SUTTON: The bust-up between Hugo Lloris and Son Heung-min wasn’t pretty… players should wait until they are inside the dressing room

  • Tottenham beat Everton 1-0 in the Premier League on Monday evening 
  • Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was seen pushing Son Heung-min at half time 
  • The Frenchman was angered by Son’s lack of willingness to track back

That rumble between Hugo Lloris and Son Heung-min at half-time was not pretty. It’s not a good look for Spurs. Wait until you get into the dressing room if you want to flatten someone. That’s the way it’s done in football.

Jose Mourinho spoke about Tottenham’s togetherness ahead of this match. But maybe they aren’t as together as we think, judging by what happened between the pair. 

Centre forwards can have a go at goalkeepers, and goalkeepers can have a go at centre forwards. It happens. Emotions run high on the football field.

I was on the bench when David Batty and Graeme Le Saux had a ding dong in 1995 when our Blackburn team played Spartak Moscow. It wasn’t great.

And I was surprised to see the Spurs lads lose it on Monday night and have to be separated by their fellow players.

It wasn’t what you would want to see if you’re a Spurs supporter.

There was no need either — Tottenham edged it in the first half. It ought to have been Everton and Carlo Ancelotti who were frustrated heading for that tunnel.
