Tottenham stopper Hugo Lloris spoke to reporters ahead of his side's trip to the Etihad to take on Manchester City on Wednesday night, and backed Heung-Min Son and Lucas Moura to produce in the absence of Harry Kane, as quoted by the Independent.

Spurs take a one goal lead with them to Manchester for the second-leg of their Champions League clash, but they will have to make do without their talismanic striker.


Son has proven before that he is more than capable of filling in for Kane, whilst Lucas will be absolutely buzzing after bagging a hat-trick for Tottenham against Huddersfield on Saturday.

And Lloris insisted that whilst Spurs are a better side with Kane, Son and Lucas are more than capable of causing Manchester City problems on Wednesday night, as quoted by the Independent:

“They have different profiles. Of course we would prefer to have Harry but every time the gaffer gives the chance to Lucas and to Son they respond very well. They’ve scored important goals this season. We’re going to probably have a lot of space to use against Manchester City so we need the attacking players to be ready to run and give problems to their defence."

Tottenham also have a real fight on their hands for the top four, with just five games remaining, and the South Korean and the Brazilian will have to be on their very best form over the next five or six weeks, if their side are to achieve success this season.
