His game has been of a very high level all season. He's made a few errors and we take his brilliance for granted. Statistically speaking this has been by far his best season for us, and we are facing a lot more shots than in previous seasons, probably because we have been forced to rotate the defense a lot.

He will make mistakes, as would any keeper being asked to play his role.

Keepers we could get to challenge him?
Navas? He is a decent keeper but would be fit to clean lloris' boots particularly has he is not suited to the pl style.
No need for anybody else. Lloris has been great for years and has been an integral part of our defensive setup (high line, sweeper keeper) and I think he has produced arguably his best performance in a few yeas just when Gazza has emerged. Gazza is more than enough to keep him on his toes

Edit. Those who disagree have a look at the keeper stats for this season
Like the stat that Hugo has the second best save percentage in the league this season? That's the one that really matters as total saves will always favor keepers playing for lesser teams who face more shots.

Hugo has been a top 3 keeper in the league this season.

I was looking at average ratings and mistakes leading to goals which Lloris is not doing so well in

I find it strange that some of our own fans don't seem to like our players. Especially when they're demonstrably one of the best in the world.

I think some people were happier back in the 90s when we had Ian Walker and Espen Baardsen etc. Clearly the stress of being excellent is too much.

It's the grass is always greener mentality. No doubt Hugo has one in him every now and then but it's comparatively few mistakes compared to other goal keepers. I'd probably take De Gea or Ederson over him from our league but that's it.

Average ratings are generally subjective nonsense, completely dependent on different criteria depending on the source.

Mistakes leading to goal is a sound judgement, but again, it's only really a problem when said mistake leads to dropped points. I don't know how Hugo is doing in that department compared to the rest of the league, but as I said, his save percentage is only behind Alisson in the league this season.
