Hugo Lloris comments prove he has learned from past mistakes

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has urged his teammates to be fully focused during their game against Chelsea tomorrow.

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has unquestionably been his side's finest performer so far this season, but he appears to be showing a willingness to learn from any rare mistakes he does make. 

The Frenchman has starred for Spurs, seeming to be a one-man defence at times, but his worst display of the campaign came against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Lloris was arguably at fault for both of the Blues' first-half goals in their 3-0 win earlier in the season, but he has learned his lesson and, with Spurs due to face Chelsea on New Year's Day, he is determined to not make the same mistakes again. 

"They want to give you confidence with the ball and then with the smallest mistake they punish you," he said to the club's official site.

"We are aware of that. It will be a tough game and we need concentration and desire in front of our crowd to get a great performance."

In the 3-0 defeat, Spurs had actually been the better side up until Lloris's mishaps and they can take heart from that. 

They should be more confident heading into the game this time around too, as their form has been much improved of late.

The Lilywhites are unbeaten in their last five matches and if they can extend this run tomorrow then it will be reflected on as a good result.
