Hugo Lloris has insisted that the lack of a ‘big star’ at Spurs keeps all the players firmly grounded and gives them an advantage heading into another potential race for the title.
Tottenham Hotspur currently sit second in the table after the latest weekend of Premier League fixtures – completing their sixth straight league victory following the 4-0 thrashing of West Brom at White Hart Lane.
The captain said: “One thing I really like about Tottenham is that there is not really a big star.”
“We are all working together for the team, we respect the team and we all realise that the club is higher than any player in the team. It is working well at the moment so we need to carry on (with this mentality).”
The French captain continued, “We feel confident in our style of play, but in football things can change very quickly if you don’t have the right behaviour and attitude. We have to continue working hard as we always have.”
“We are showing a lot more maturity than last season. We are still improving and we feel we are moving in the right direction, thanks to the manager and his staff who put us in the best conditions. The players deserve credit too because we are all involved and work in the way the gaffer wants.”
Spurs will be hoping to complete their fourth successive win over Manchester City on Saturday evening as they continue to push for their first league title for over five decades. The Lilywhites will look to take advantage of Manchester City’s recent slump in form and take all three points in what could be a massive title statement from Pochettino’s side.
