Lloris was on top form to keep Everton out and pulled off a number of excellent saves, most notably from Leon Osman, as Spurs did their top four chances the power of good with a 1-0 victory.
Lloris, who has been linked with a big-money move to PSG in the summer, was singled out for praise by head coach Sherwood.
"It was a slow start again and Hugo kept us in the game," he told Tottenham's official website.
"His save was vital - goalkeepers are vital, goalscorers are vital.
"As much as Ade will get all the plaudits - rightly so, he scored the winning goal - a save like that is just as good as a goal. He's a world-class goalkeeper."
