In spite of this, the French international goalkeeper is adamant it is not a two-horse race, but did highlight the importance of focusing on their own performances. Talking to Sky Sports News HQ Lloris said:
"We can talk a bit about Arsenal as well. They are behind us but have played one less game, so I think the key is to be focused on ourselves, don't think about the other teams."
The Spurs stopper has been instrumental in their success this season, conceding just 23 goals in the 30 Premier League games he has played.
He went on to say how their next two games could define their season:
"We have two tough games ahead with Liverpool away and Manchester United at home and maybe we will see a bit more after those games."
Although their success will depend on their own performances, they have certainly been given a helping hand by their main rivals. Spurs, along with Leicester, have seized the initiative after Arsenal's post-Christmas collapse.
The Lilywhites will have to continue their sparkling form, as they have what looks like the toughest run-in out of the top three clubs.
Lloris was speaking from Paris, where he played the full 90 minutes in France's 4-2 win over Russia.
