Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris believes that the club’s around them posses more experience and that will make the race for the top four extremely difficult for them.

Spurs are currently second-placed in the Premier League table and appear unlikely to bridge the 10-point gap to runaway leaders Chelsea.

The north London club will be focused on trying to obtain a top four position and they were dealt a huge blow on Saturday in the 2-0 away defeat against Liverpool.

The race for the Champions League spots is certainly intensifying as sixth-placed Manchester United are just two points behind them.

Spurs captain Lloris feels that his side don’t have the same experience as rivals Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United and City.

“Before thinking about the title, we need to think about the teams behind us in the table, because they are all top clubs with top players and they are used to fighting for the top four and for trophies,” Lloris said, as quoted by the Evening Standard. “Maybe they are more experienced than us. Even if we had good experience last season when we were fighting for the title, it is not enough.”

Chelsea look certain to be in the top four at the end of the season as they continue to march to the title, meaning there will be just three spots left up for grabs.

Spurs have been regarded as one of the strongest teams in the division this season, but are in the thick of a battle for a top four position.

The two Manchester clubs are currently in great form and have experience of winning title over the past decade, while Arsenal consistently find a way to finish in the top four every season.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side also suffered a defeat against Liverpool at the weekend and they are another team who have been strong this season.
