Hugo Lloris claims Tottenham Hotspur are lucky to have Kieran Trippier, Danny Rose, Kyle Walker and Ben Davies

Tottenham Hotspur have the best defensive record of any team in the Premier League.

Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has told Tottenham Hotspur’s official site that the club are lucky to have Kieran Trippier, Danny Rose, Kyle Walker and Ben Davies all available to them.

The quartet of full-backs have been rotated into the team this season, allowing Mauricio Pochettino to tinker with his defensive line-up.

Despite not having a settled back line, Spurs still have the best defensive record of any side in the Premier League, and Lloris believes that the quality his team have at full-back is highly valuable.

“I think we’re lucky to have four great full-backs,” Lloris said. “There is good competition between them because there is a lot of respect between them.

“After the gaffer picks a player it doesn’t matter who is on the pitch, everyone is aware that we need to push the team as far as possible because we don’t want to miss a great opportunity.

“Everyone is aware of that and that’s why the spirit is so great in the team.”

Tottenham’s strength at full-back was highlighted in their most recent fixture against Watford, which they won 1-0.

Trippier, who came in for Walker in the contest, grabbed the winner in the match, while Davies also looked solid throughout.

Tottenham have only conceded 19 goals in their 25 league matches this season, which has been the foundation they have built their title push on.

The Lilywhites are currently sat in second spot in the Premier League table, five points behind Leicester City, who lead the way as things stand.
