Lloris was a major doubt for the trip to Old Trafford on Monday but put in an inspiring display during their 3-0 victory.
The 2018 FIFA World Cup-winning captain admits the surprise result was a relief to him after the being bailed out of jail when failing a breathalyser test in the early hours of the morning in central London.
"It was a tough week especially because of my mistake but I think the team showed they are strong," the goalkeeper said, as quoted by The Guardian.
"There are always some key moments in the season and I think this game came at the perfect time.
"We showed again the togetherness and made a great game against United. It is always a big challenge to come to Old Trafford to face United and this time we got the result that we wanted."
