Tottenham Hotspur ace Hugo Lloris believes his team are up for the North London derby against Arsenal
The 34-year-old has been an integral part of Spurs ever since he joined the club in the summer of 2012. Since then, Lloris has played under several different managers and started playing under a new one this year as well.
Nuno Espirito Santo took charge of the club this summer and the North London outfit were looking good before the international break as they had picked up 3 victories and had not conceded a single goal.
However, two successive 3-0 defeats to Crystal Palace and Chelsea have led to Spurs being 10th in the table. After facing their London rivals from the south and from the west over the last two weekends, the club will now face their bitter North London rivals in Arsenal on Sunday.
Lloris has now come out and explained that his side just needs to continue working harder while they will also be hoping for a win in the derby on the weekend, as per an interview (h/t Mirror).
“We just need to work and to carry on. You know when you are not at your best, so the confidence is going away and we were a little bit in between. We will try to win (against Arsenal) this time. At the moment, both clubs (Spurs and Arsenal), they are still looking for a certain consistency in terms of results, in terms of performance but a derby is a derby.
“It’s not even about the league, it’s about pride, it’s for the fans, we know what it means and it’s going to be a big game to play.”

Thus, Nuno’s men will certainly be up for the game and be hoping to pick up a victory at the Emirates, something the club have failed to do in the Premier League since 2010.
