   There is little news, with most of the focus on Hugo Lloris's save to deny Javier Hernandez last night.  The Frenchman has been lauded for his reactions and Jan Vertonghen hopes he stays at Spurs for many years to come, hinting that the Belgian defender may be about to announce a new deal with Spurs.  Danny Rose left the ground in a protective boot, but it is not sure what injury he was suffering from.
   One weak bit of transfer gossip is that the media think Daniel Sturridge is likely to leave Liverpool, with Tottenham said to be one of the destinations he may end up at along with Arsenal, Chelsea, West Ham United and Manchester City.  I don't think that leaves many other Premier League clubs.  Why Spurs would want him if he doesn't fit into Jurgen Klopp's pressing system, I am not sure.
