Each time criticism comes their way, they find a way to prove it right, or so it seems.
"We're extremely disappointed that we've come to Manchester City and drawn the game". The side warmed up in their new Nike training gear, which was a spiffy darkish yellow.
With Jan Vertonghen sidelined, though, Tottenham's entire defence looked shaky, so Lloris wasn't the only one to blame.
The powerful midfielder says he had no issue with being deployed at the back, though he knew he had to remain fully switched on given just how risky Manchester City are going forward.
Instead Spurs were able to go up the other end and equalise.
He told BT Sport: "They were better in the first half".
First the Frenchman came out of his box to intercept a long ball but missed his attempted header, allowing Sane to finish into an empty net in the 49th minute.
Lloris then made a stop at full stretch from an Aguero header from a De Bruyne chipped pass ahead of another chance from Agüero after being set through on goal by Zabaleta. Everton shoot four times, four goals, they shoot two times Tottenham, two goals.
However, the game turned just a few minutes later. Raheem Sterling refused to go down off a shove in the back from Kyle Walker, and Marriner ignored the play as if nothing happened.

David Silva (Manchester City). He finished home De Bruyne's cross for a tap-in that was whistled for offsides.
In one dugout at Etihad Stadium on Saturday will be a manager enjoying a six-match winning streak with his second-place team. He opted to carry on his run but was off balance and Lloris saved. Claudio Bravo was rarely troubled, but failed to make a save for the second straight match.

Speaking to BT Sport about Tottenham's squad, former Spurs boss Redknapp claimed that he wouldn't swap Pochettino's squad for Conte's Chelsea outfit.
"We played really good, we missed lots of chances", he said. I think we're in a very good position.
Spurs needs to be much more material with the factor after being beat for numerous match and also racking up with both their shots on target. It showed clearly, and they were the better side for the 90+ minutes.
Before today the 24-year-old, who represented his country at the European Championship last summer, had only started seven games this season. A missed call by Marriner can not be the solo reason for the loss, as City were still 2-0 ahead.
Two of the teams in the relegation zone have tricky road matches against top-four opponents. He quickly made an impact, taking on Kyle Walker, beating him down the sideline, and putting a cross into a unsafe area. He also headed wide from close range.
Indeed, it is hard to see how they will secure a much-needed win, even at home.
Pochettino made another change at the interval, sending on Son for Wimmer, but within nine minutes of kick-off his side were 2-0 down as Lloris unwittingly took centre stage. Christian Eriksen attacked down the right side, Harry Kane flicked the ball on and Son buried it into the bottom left corner.
"What it creates is magic all over the pitch - particularly when they're that good".
And yet, despite all that, Tottenham would have taken all three points if not for Hugo Lloris.
"Of course, I'm sad and upset because the players don't deserve that but maybe in the future these kinds of things will make us stronger".
There's a switch in focus next weekend as City return to FA Cup action with a fourth-round tie at Crystal Palace.
Spurs arrived in Manchester aiming for their seventh consecutive top-flight victory - a feat they have never achieved in the Premier League era.
