Lloris: Tottenham need to win remaining Premier League games in top-four bid

Hugo Lloris insists Tottenham have no tricks left up their sleeves as their grip on a Premier League top-four spot loosened even further over the weekend.

Spurs were title contenders little over a fortnight ago, but since then their league campaign has imploded as a 2-1 loss at Southampton made it three defeats from four.

Not only are they no longer in the running to win the title, they are now worriedly looking over their shoulder in their bid for a fourth-successive year of Champions League qualification.

Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea are all breathing down their neck, and the prospect that Mauricio Pochettino’s side miss out is a distinct possibility.

“Yes, it’s been four games now without a win,” the Spurs captain said when asked if he was worried about the league form.

“Especially against a team that you except to get points from. It’s tough to lose games and it makes things very complicated for us.

“We had a good gap in the months before, now it has reduced and, like I said, we don’t have a joker (card) anymore. We need to win every game until the end.”

Missing out on the top four would be a big blow for Spurs on a number of fronts, not least it would impact their ability to keep hold of Pochettino in the summer.

Lloris was not inclined to discuss the prospect of missing out on the top four, but accepts something has to change, especially away from home where Spurs have lost their last three games.

“It’s too early to talk about that,” he said. “I don’t want to talk about supposition, we will see what happens and we will see what we will deserve.

“We are still in the race and that is the most important thing, but for sure we need to change something, especially away from home.”

Tottenham are not in action for three weeks now, due to the FA Cup next weekend and the international break.

They are heading to Barcelona for a short training camp this week where they will make the most of some time off after a hectic run of games over the last few months.

“It’s not so much about starting again, it is about getting that rest,” defender Ben Davies said.

“We’ve had a hectic period since December and it’s a nice break to get in a few good training sessions, working as a team again and get back to winning ways after it.”
