Hugo Lloris at a loss to describe Tottenham result

White Hart Lane

Spurs' title hopes suffered potentially irreversible damage.

Speaking to the club's official website, Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has admitted that words can't describe how disappointed he was with Monday night's 1-1 draw with West Brom at White Hart Lane.

Premier League title-chasing Spurs dropped two valuable points in their bid to clinch a first league crown since 1961, with Craig Dawson cancelling out his first-half own goal as the Lilywhites slipped seven points behind Leicester with only nine left on offer.

Consequently, victory at Old Trafford this Sunday would see the Foxes complete the fairytale and perhaps the greatest sporting achievement ever, and the French stopper is at a loss to describe the feeling.

It was a result made all the worse given that Tottenham had chances in which to kill off the Baggies, with Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen both striking the woodwork, and the captain says his side were simply unlucky on the night.

"There are no words to describe the feeling. It’s strange because we had a very good first half, high intensity, we took some risks but we created a lot of chances and were unlucky because we hit the post and the crossbar," he said to their official site.

"In the second half, things turned a bit. We should have done a bit more in terms of aggression in front of goal, but listen, we are men and we need to finish as strong as possible."

 

Spurs' title bid will be over regardless what happens at Old Trafford if they lose at Chelsea on Monday night.
