Tottenham Hotspur skipper Hugo Lloris sheds light on the attacking improvements taking place at the club

In conversation after their victory against Brighton & Hove Albion (h/t Football.London), Tottenham Hotspur captain Hugo Lloris spoke about how their training regime has helped improve creativity in the attack.

The Lilywhites had a tough start to the season under Nuno Espirito Santo where they struggled to open up opposition defences. The appointment of Antonio Conte has since seen them pivot in a more attacking direction.

Whilst there is still a lot of work to be done at Hotspur Way, the Italian manager has helped us a lot going forward. The North Londoners have scored 16 goals in the last six Premier League matches. The former Chelsea manager has also helped Harry Kane rediscover his form after the England captain had a timid start to the campaign.

Hugo Lloris spoke about their recent improvement in the attacking department.

The English striker has now scored 15 goals and provided three assists in 26 matches across all competitions ever since Conte arrived at the club. January signing Dejan Kulusevski has also hit the ground running ever since he made the move from Juventus, providing us with a great foundation for us to build upon.

“We all know his importance and probably when he is at his best, he gives more chances for the team to win, but again, it is not only about Harry, it is about everyone to keep improving individually and also for the team, and to push, to push every day and be ready to face all the teams we will face.”

Speaking after the Brighton victory (h/t Football.London), Lloris shed light on how Kane has a big influence on the club’s attacking impetus. He also highlighted how repetitive movements in training have helped the team exploit opportunities better.

“It is difficult to explain. The doors are closed at the training ground and you can not see the way we train. The repetition of movements help the team to create chances and obviously, Harry is a huge player for us.”

Positive signs at Hotspur Way

The great attacking intent displayed at the club ever since the arrival of Conte has been a refreshing change as compared to the more defensive setup under Nuno. While this hints at something good we should not get too ahead of ourselves as there is still a long way to go.

The lack of consistency has been a grave issue during this campaign. The defence has also crumbled under pressure at times and there seems to be a lack of focus in the dying minutes of the game which has cost us dearly in recent matches.

One can slowly see a shift in the drive of this team and the wing-backs are also starting to get more involved in the game. The likes of Matt Doherty and Ryan Sessegnon have seen an impressive rise in their fortunes ever since the 52-year-old manager arrived, but a lack of consistency seems to be a teething issue once again.

That being said, the Spurs faithful would be hoping that we continue to show such positive attacking intent in the games to come. A little bit of defensive solidity and we could be on our way to compete amongst the elite clubs on the highest level. A top-four finish in the PL can be considered the most realistic target this season.

Not only will the players have to continue to showcase their attacking drive but also bring about more stability if they want to play in Europe next season. That would certainly do a world of good for the morale of this current crop of players as well as the fans.
