Hugo Lloris courted controversy against Chelsea at Wembley on Saturday as the Tottenham goalkeeper appeared to handle the ball outside his penalty area.

Lloris endured a tough start to the FA Cup semi-final as he was beaten by a deflected Willian free-kick on his near side after just five minutes, and was unable to keep out the Brazilian’s spot-kick two minutes from the interval.

Things could have gotten worse for the Spurs captain as he lost control of the ball after sliding out to deny Michy Batshauyi a minute before half-time, with the goalkeeper appearing to push the ball back into his penalty area with his hand.

Chelsea players appealed in vain to referee Martin Atkinson as the keeper escaped a potential dismissal for deliberate handball, with the Blues’ frustrations compounded as Spurs equalised soon after the break through Dele Alli.
