Tottenham Hotspurs goalkeeper Hugo
Lloris has given Tottenham a harsh
reality check by insisting they should be
thinking about the top four not the title.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men have lost
consecutive away games to Manchester
United and Arsenal which have left
them 11 points behind Manchester City.
And skipper Lloris admits they must
now consolidate their top-four spot. He
said: “We’ve heard from outside that
Tottenham plays for the title.
“But before we think about Manchester
City, it’s important to stay in the top
four. That is the main target, to remain
consistent in the league.
“We have been in the top four for the
last two years and need to carry on with
that. To settle the club in this position
and to gradually reduce the gap with the
“It’s our ambition to win the title, but we
need to go step by step.”
Goals from Shkodran Mustafi and Alexis
Sanchez condemned Spurs to their third
defeat in three games.
