Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has no regrets; claims second would be fantastic achievement

Although Tottenham missed their chance of Premier League glory, there are many positives to take from their impressive season.

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has told talkSPORT that he and his teammates have no regrets, and are proud of their season.

Spurs gifted the title to Leicester City on Monday night, after losing a two goal lead to draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, but Lloris explained how it is impossible to be unhappy with their efforts:

"It was a great performance from us, we tried our best until the end of the game, and maybe we deserved a bit more, but we have no regrets, we gave our best."

Mauricio Pochettino's men are now only three points ahead of Arsenal in the race for second place, albeit with a far superior goal difference, and Lloris claims that no one would have expected Spurs to even be in the top four, let alone second in the league:

"No one could have expected this at the beginning of the season, I don't think a lot of people would have expected to see Tottenham in second place, but it is true we need to finish strong and finish the job to secure second place."

He went on to talk up the importance of finishing above arch rivals Arsenal:

"Finishing second will mean a lot to the players because it will be a good achievement to finish above a massive club like Arsenal."

Whatever happens though, this season must be judged as a huge success for Spurs, and victory against Southampton on Sunday will all but guarantee they finish in second and above the Gunners for the first time since 1995.

The North London outfit finish their campaign at St James' Park to take on relegation candidates Newcastle United, and will be hoping they have already secured second spoT by the time the game kicks off.
