​Lloris not too downhearted as Tottenham miss opportunity to lead Premiership

Tottenham keeper Hugo Lloris insists his team-mates are relaxed despite missing the chance to move to the top of the table after losing 1-0 at West Ham on Wednesday night.

"It's still a long run until the end and a lot of things can happen," he told Sky Sports News HQ. "A lot of teams can lose points, like yesterday, so we just need to be consistent until the end. I think it's too early to talk about the title.

"We don't have to put more pressure than there is. We just need to be focused, keep going in the right way.

"The mentality is great in the team. We work a lot so we are ready to suffer until the end. Mentally we are strong enough and we are doing more than we were expected to at the start of the season.

"We just need to be calm about that and carry on. The target is to finish in the top four and if we can get more, we will get more, but step by step, there are a lot of games ahead."
