Lloris identifies what Tottenham are lacking as he lays into teammates
By Emma Sanders
Hugo Lloris has urged his Tottenham teammates to be more aggressive in the final third after another stalemate.
Tottenham were held to a goalless draw against Bournemouth on Saturday in what was their third consecutive draw.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side are the only unbeaten team in the Premier League but skipper Lloris wants more from his teammates in the attacking part of the pitch if they are to challenge for the title.
“It’s not good enough because we have ambition, so we’re not happy with a point,” Lloris told the club’s official website.
“Perhaps we need to be more aggressive in the last 30 yards, in our runs, in our passes. Look, it’s football and there are ups and downs.

“I always say when you cannot win, you must not lose, but it is three draws in a row now and we needed to score,” he added.
Tottenham missed a golden opportunity to go to the top of the table on Saturday as they were in action first on a weekend which prompted a number of surprising results.
Arsenal also dropped two points against Middlesbrough later that afternoon before Manchester City were held to a 1-1 draw against Southampton on Sunday.
Spurs’ draw against Bournemouth was their fourth of the league campaign so far, as they also failed to record victories against Liverpool, Everton and West Brom.
They also drew 0-0 with Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League last Tuesday evening, making it their second goalless draw in a row.
