Hugo Lloris on Tottenham Hotspur's improvements

Tottenham Hotspur will be protecting a 10-game unbeaten run when they take on Arsenal this weekend.

Hugo Lloris has told the Hampstead and Highgate Express that Tottenham Hotspur are far more confident this season than they were during the last campaign.

Spurs were still adapting to Mauricio Pochettino’s methods during the 2014/15 season, and their young squad showed naivety in some of their matches.

However, this time around, Spurs have been very difficult to beat – and they are currently on a 10 game unbeaten run, having beaten Aston Villa 3-1 in their latest outing.

And Lloris said: “I think if we compare with last season at the same time we show more confidence, we show improvement, and even after their goal we tried to build from the back – like with our third goal.

“I think the first pass was from me and in three or four passes we were in front of the goal and Harry scored a great goal. I think we’re in a good way, we just try to fix some details.

“Are we more stable now? Yes, and we showed that in the first half and until the goal - we were strong. We didn’t concede a lot of chances so that’s why we’re disappointed because we wanted to keep a clean sheet.”

One of the major contributing factors to Spurs’ fine form has been their defensive solidity, which Lloris has played a big part in.

Although the Lilywhites’ backline has limited opposition side’s chances, Lloris is one of the finest goalkeepers in the Premier League and he has excelled when called into action.

Spurs seem to have added a greater cutting edge to their play too, with the side racking up eight goals in their last two Premier League matches.

It means that they are full of confidence, and they will be looking to keep their momentum going when they take on Arsenal in the north London derby on Sunday.
