Tottenham Hotspurs keeper Hugo Lloris will be hoping to keep another clean sheet, after doing well against Manchester United, when he leads his mates against Stoke City on Monday 18 April at the Britannia Stadium, a place termed psychologically tough for visiting teams.
The North Londoners have title ambitions of their own and will be looking to close the gap on Leicester City who played to a draw in their last match and Lloris, speaking to the club’s official website, urged his team mates to turn up in their A game.
Though Tottenham will be heading to the game as favorites, the Frenchman acknowledges that Stoke City have what it takes to beat any team, especially when playing at home.
“Stoke have changed the way they play football, they play in another way now, another philosophy with the ball on the floor and lots of talented players.
“They are able to beat anyone. We know that and we need to play at a high level again. At this moment, it’s all about mentality and we’re excited about these last five games.” He said.
Tottenham goes into the match eight points behind leaders Leicester after their draw with West Ham on Sunday.
