Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris says their objective is to “finish in the top four” but is wary of the threat posed by other teams around them.

Lloris admits that they are looking over their shoulders as other top four challengers are gaining momentum.

A few weeks ago, Spurs were tipped to challenge Liverpool for the Premier League title. But home defeats to Wolves and Manchester United have seen them drop to third place and nine points behind Jurgen Klopp’s side.

The North London club is now currently one point ahead of fourth-placed Chelsea and five adrift of second-placed Manchester City.

Pochettino: Kane call could be decisive for Spurs’ UCL dream

Mauricio Pochettino concedes that his final decision on whether to start Harry Kane could prove decisive for Tottenham's Champions League dream.

“We are still involved in four competitions but the main thing is to finish in the top four,” Lloris told Sky Sports.

“We have said that from the beginning and we have not changed our mind.

“Of course, everyone is talking about the teams in front of us, but it is important to keep an eye on the teams behind because in football things can change very quickly.

“It is important to stay consistent and focus on the main things.”
