Liverpool playing the best football in the league, says Tottenham’s Lloris
Hugo Lloris claims Liverpool are playing some of the best football in the Premier League ahead of Tottenham's trip to Anfield
Hugo Lloris has claimed that Liverpool are playing some of the best football in the Premier League ahead of Tottenham’s trip to Anfield on Sunday.
Tottenham gave their Champions League qualification hopes a significant boost with victory over Arsenal in last weekend’s north London derby as they moved into third place in the table with 10 games left to play.
But Andre Villas-Boas’s men have no time to dwell on that result as they must host Inter Milan in the Europa League last 16 on Thursday before travelling to Merseyside at the weekend.
And despite watching Spurs open up a seven-point lead over their fierce north London rivals, Lloris has urged his team-mates to remain focused on the task at hand as the season reaches its climax.
“The season is not finished. There are 10 games to go so we have to keep concentration and be focused on the end of the season,” Lloris is quoted as saying by the Daily Mirror.
“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.
“We don’t know what can happen so we have to keep going, not look at the other teams and be focused on ourselves.
“But 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.”
