Hugo Lloris believes Tottenham must win their remaining fixtures if they must retain a spot in the Champions League places.

Spurs have moved from title contenders to pretenders and now fighting to secure a Champions League spot for next season after losing 2-1 to Southampton on Saturday.

With north London rivals Arsenal defeating United to move just a point adrift Spurs, Lloris knows there is no other hiding place for his team with eight games left to play.

“Yes, it’s been four games now without a win,” the Spurs captain revealed via FourFourTwo when asked if he was worried about the league form.

“Especially against a team that you except to get points from. It’s tough to lose games and it makes things very complicated for us.

“We had a good gap in the months before, now it has reduced and, like I said, we don’t have a joker (card) anymore. We need to win every game until the end.”

Tottenham are not in action for three weeks now, due to the FA Cup next weekend and the international break.

With the next EPL game set to take place at Anfield, Spurs are set to embark on a trip to Barcelona to recharge their batteries.

“It’s not so much about starting again, it is about getting that rest,” defender Ben Davies said.

“We’ve had a hectic period since December and it’s a nice break to get in a few good training sessions, working as a team again and get back to winning ways after it.”
