​Lloris: Tottenham have the character to overcome Europa League disappointment

Tottenham keeper Hugo Lloris believes mental toughness will ensure his team-mates keep their title challenge on track after Thursday's 3-0 defeat to Borussia Dortmund in the Europa League.

"After a game like Dortmund you feel very far from the top teams in Europe," Lloris said.

"But I'm not worried about the weekend. I know we're going to bounce back.

"It's important to recover well for all the players who were on the pitch today, and we will all be ready for the game on Sunday which is maybe the most important.

"I know the quality, the skill, the mentality of the team. Dortmund is just the story of one game.

"Of course we can question ourselves a bit but not too much because the league is very important, we are in a good position and we need to do everything we can to stay in this position."
