Tottenham must improve in front of goal, insists Hugo Lloris

The goalkeeper believes Mauricio Pochettino's side will win more games if they keep performing as they have been.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris says they must improve their attacking play.

Although Spurs currently sit in eighth position in the Premier League table with 13 points, they have struggled for goals this season, despite dominating a number of games already.

There has been a serious lack of a cutting edge so far in this campaign, with Harry Kane continuing to struggle to replicate his form of last season and the rest of the squad failing to pick up the slack thus far.

After scoring four against Manchester City, though, they then got two against Swansea, suggesting that things are starting to click for them, but Lloris wants them to improve their attacking play further to kill off games.

“If we have to improve on one aspect of our game it’s in front of goal – we have to score more,” Lloris told tottenhamhotspur.com.

“It’s not only about one player but all the attacking players – they need to get into the box and be more aggressive with a desire to score. Again at Swansea we had so much space and so many chances but we need to be more clinical in front of goal.”

The Spurs captain has, however, praised his side’s spirit, believing that despite their struggles up front their performances will see them win games.

The French skipper was the star of the show against the Swans and Crystal Palace before them, as he pulled off a number of fine saves to see them take four points from a possible six.

He is not interested in his own performances, though, saying that it is more important for things to come together as a team if collective targets are going to be hit.

“The rest will come if we keep the same attitude and behavior,” he added.

“If we keep playing the same way with the same attitude then we’re going to win a lot of games.”
