Lloris hopes for strong Spurs finish after City win

Tottenham Hotspur went into Sunday’s game with reigning champions Manchester City knowing that they needed a win if they wanted to keep their hopes of Champions League qualification alive, after a run of results which had seen them drop from third in the table to fifth.

Following a thrilling second half which saw Spurs overturn a 1-0 deficit to leave the field as 3-1 winners, goalkeeper Hugo Lloris spoke to TalkSport about how he hopes the victory will motivate the team to finish the season strongly.

Spurs manager, Andre Villas Boas made three second half substitutes, all of whom were directly involved in either creating or scoring goals for the team, a tactical decision that wasn’t lost on the France captain.

“The bench made the difference today,” Lloris said. “The second half was better than the first. I hope it will give us the power to finish well this season. This game will give us the confidence we lost a little bit.”

Goals from Clint Dempsey, Jermain Defoe and the returning Gareth Bale cancelled out Samir Nasri’s opener and gave Spurs a victory which leaves them one point behind fourth placed Chelsea, with a game in hand on third placed Arsenal.
