Hugo Lloris expects tough test from Liverpool
Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper expects difficult match at Anfield
Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is wary of his side’s difficult visit to Anfield this Sunday, when they take on in the in-form Liverpool in a crunch Premier League fixture.
The French international believes that after the Reds’ 4-0 trouncing of Wigan Athletic last week, they could prove to be more difficult opponents than Arsenal.
Spurs edged rivals Arsenal 2-1 in a riveting north London derby on Sunday at the White Hart Lane to consolidate third position in the table.
Andre Villas Boas’ unit currently find themselves 12 points clear of Liverpool, and are riding on a 12-match unbeaten streak in the league.
However, Lloris was under no delusions whatsoever over their next league assignment. The 26-year old shot-stopper warned his team that they will be up against a rampant Liverpool side that are playing breathtaking football of late.
He said: “It will be another game next Sunday. Liverpool are playing maybe the best football in the Premier League at this moment.
“They proved that in their last game against Wigan. It will be a very difficult game but very exciting game in Anfield.
“Of course it's better to be in this position than Arsenal although we have to keep a lucidity of the situation.
“The most important thing is to be in the Champions League next season and I think we have to keep our ambition.”
Liverpool have scored 22 league goals since the start of the year, more than any other side in the competition. During this period, the Merseyside club have collected 14 points.
Nonetheless, before going head-to-head with Liverpool, Spurs will first take on Italian giants Inter Milan at home on Thursday in the first leg of Europa League’s round of 16.
And Lloris revealed that his side were taking the second-tier European competition as seriously as the Premier League.
He finished by saying: “Of course there is the Premier League but also the Europa League, we can do something and why not win a trophy for the club? It would be a great thing for this season but also for the future.”
