Lloris: Title Not On Our Mind, Top Four Finish Is

share on:

Tottenham has reduced the deficit separating them from Chelsea to seven points, but Lloris says finishing in the top four is what’s important to the spurs at the moment.

Chelsea lost to Crystal Palace, as Tottenham secured a win, as it looks Chelsea could be beaten to the title with just nine games remaining.

However, Lloris insists winning the title is not Tottenham’s priority at the moment, but ensuring they end the season in the top four.

He told reporters after victory at Turf Moor: “Honestly, it doesn’t change my mind or the minds of my team-mates.

“We’re still focused on ourselves. We need to carry on because it’s very tight in the league behind us.

“Anything can happen so it’s important to stay involved, to stay together and keep fighting until the end because we want to finish as high as possible in this league and be back in the Champions League.

“We don’t talk about the title because even seven points is a big gap at this stage of the season.

“I prefer to look backwards and to look at what is happening behind us because this is the final race. It’s a key moment of the season.”

Spurs are next in action against Swansea City on Wednesday, while home dates against Watford and Bournemouth will carry them into an FA Cup semi-final clash with Chelsea on April 22.
