Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has told his club teammates they must learn and improve or risk blowing their title and UEFA Champions League aspirations away.
Spurs survived a late fightback from Wolverhampton Wanderers to secure a 3-2 victory at the Molineux on Saturday.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side were 3-0 ahead after 68 minutes but were left hanging on after Ruben Neves and Raul Jimenez scored penalties.
Lloris has issued a warning to the team, having seen Spurs lose leads against Inter Milan and PSV in Europe this season.
He said, according to Sky Sports:
“We need to learn. It is not the first time this has happened in the Champions League and in the league that the opponent created chances in the last minutes of the game. It is something we need to improve.”
“It is the responsibility of the players. Of course, the manager has his expectations and so do the staff and I think they try to give us the main tools and then it is about our emotions, our feelings.”
“If we have to play a different way, we have to play a different way. We could have managed the game in another way. At 3-0, you do not have to press. It is about communications, feelings and is more up to the players.”
