Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris believes this coming weekend’s game against an in-form Liverpool side will be a tougher test than the one posed by north London rivals Arsenal last Sunday.

 Spurs beat Arsenal 2-1 at White Hart Lane to move up to third position in the league and create a seven-point cushion over their fiercest rivals with just ten league fixtures to fulfil. 

 But Spurs travel to Liverpool on Sunday, who after a slow start to the season under new manager Brendan Rodgers, have really found some form of late – moving up to seventh in the table and are currently just five points adrift of fifth-placed Arsenal.

"Liverpool are playing maybe the best football in the Premier League at this moment," Lloris said, as reported by The Independent.

"They proved that in their last game against Wigan. It will be a very difficult game but very exciting game in Anfield."

Not only does the already mouth-watering fixture see two of the Premier League’s form teams meet but it also sees PFA Player of the Year frontrunners Luis Suarez and Gareth Bale come up against each other.

After Liverpool, Tottenham also face stern tests against Chelsea, Manchester City and Everton in their end of season run-in but Lloris is confident the players can push on to cement a Champions League place and erase all memories of last season’s escapades.

Last term Spurs not only faded away from the top two places after keeping up with the Manchester clubs for the most part of the season, but also saw their fourth-placed finish and therefore Champions League place controversially taken by Chelsea, who finished as low as sixth yet won the competition.

"We have got some tough games coming up but the Arsenal win has put us in a good position," the 26 year-old added.

"We showed fighting spirit and commitment that you need to win football matches.

"We didn't have much of the ball for the first 20 minutes but we showed grit and determination."
