Hugo Lloris comments on Tottenham Hotspur's push for the Premier League title

Tottenham Hotspur are currently in second place in the Premier League table.

Hugo Lloris has told Tottenham Hotspur’s official site that his side's title push now entirely depends on their mentality.

Spurs have elevated themselves into contention to lift the Premier League trophy in May, and they currently sit in second place in England’s top flight.

With the season entering its crunch stage, Lloris feels that Tottenham’s chances of being successful will rely on his teammates continuing to keep their high standards up, and not chocking with the pressure is on.

“From the beginning of the season we said if we keep the same mentality, spirit and focus every day, in every training session and in every game then we could be rewarded at the end of the season,” Lloris said. 

“We need to be clever, to push and to up our levels all together. Now it’s about mentality.”

Tottenham are currently two points behind Leicester City, who lead the way in the Premier League.

Spurs are currently in the best form of any of the title contenders, and they showed their resilience to beat Manchester City last weekend.

The Lilywhites left it late before sealing the three points at the Etihad Stadium, when Christian Eriksen latched onto Erik Lamela’s pass and tucked the ball beyond Joe Hart.

Nacer Chadli has highlighted Tottenham’s new found ambition, by recently saying that he would no longer accept second place, as Mauricio Pochettino's side search for their first Premier League title.
