Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris insists that Spurs will continue to battle for a Champions League place.

"I am lucky to play in a competitive team, but there are six or seven clubs fighting for Champions League positions," Lloris told Canal Football Club. "This season teams will need a very high number of points for those positions, but it remains possible for us.

"We are in a difficult situation with our goal difference, but we will fight until the end.

"It doesn't change our ambition, even if it is a bit more difficult for a team in competition for a top-four finish."

Tottenham suffered a 5-1 defeat against the strong side Manchester City last week with a terrible decision by Andre Marrine, the referee, to give a straight red card to Spurs' defender Danny Rose, after a brilliant tackle on Edin Dzeko.

Lloris continued: "We know the characteristics of the Premier League - games can be very open. Against City there were also some decisions that were not to our advantage.

"When we were down to 10 men, our desire to score opened gaps and against such good players it is fatal.

The Frenchman is already focused on his next game against Everton next Sunday, and will battle all the way to help secure the north London club Champions League football.

Lloris added: "But I feel fine both mentally and physically. You can't summarise the season with the three heavy defeats we have suffered.

"There is no room for doubt. We quickly turn the page."
