The 26-year-old joined the London club from Lyon last summer and has now established himself as the first-choice goalkeeper in Andre Villas-Boas's team.

This is the first time in his career that Lloris has had no break from football over the Christmas and New Year period, as he had in France when he was with Nice and Lyon.

However, the Frenchman insists that he has adapted to life in England and is enjoying the experience.

"Mentally you have to make an effort during the festive period," Lloris told L'Equipe. "There will be a few days' rest after the Cup matches in January to get back freshness.

"But I have fun every day. I am here to improve and push the limits in a different culture. It is important on a sporting level, but on a human level too.

"I am still discovering the English stadiums, the perfect pitches and the atmosphere. I have great fun."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
