Lloris reveals extent of Tottenham title ambitions with Man City in driving seat
By Laura O’Leary
Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris has revealed that his side “don’t really talk about the title” even though they are firmly seen as contenders this season.
In an interview with the Evening Standard, the highly-rated goalkeeper revealed the side’s target is to stay in contention.
He admitted: “We don’t really talk about the title, the target is to be as consistent as possible, to stay at the top of the table, ready to fight.
“The season is still long, City have a good advantage at the moment but every team is going to have their momentum and their bad moment too.
“So we just need to be consistent and be ready in the final sprint in March and April.”

Last season, Tottenham finished second in the Premier League, seven points behind the champions Chelsea. Spurs only lost four league games last season, losing to Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United and West Ham United.
So far this season, Tottenham have lost two of their opening ten games, suffering defeat to Chelsea and in their last game Manchester United.
Spurs currently find themselves in third, behind Manchester United and Manchester City.
Tottenham are eight points behind Manchester City who lead the way at this stage having not suffered a defeat, with nine wins and a draw.
Lloris did go on to address the 1-0 defeat to Manchester United in the last game, when he said: “When you play another [title] challenger, you need to be at your best.
“I think we could have deserved this [draw], but we’ve made collective mistakes and the price is a lot.”
