Hugo Lloris urges Tottenham Hotspur to channel Arsenal heartache into winning performance vs Eintracht Frankfurt
Antonio Conte’s men suffered their first loss in the Premier League against their arch-rivals last Saturday at the Emirates. Thomas Partey opened the scoring for the Gunners before Harry Kane drew level for Tottenham from the spot.
A mistake from Lloris saw Gabriel Jesus restore Arsenal’s lead before Emerson Royal got himself sent off to make life harder for the visitors. Granit Xhaka then made it 3-1 all but consigning Conte’s men to a frustrating loss.
Next up for Tottenham is a UEFA Champions League clash against German side Eintracht Frankfurt. Having lost their last game in the competition against Sporting CP, Lloris is keen to avoid any more setbacks.
“It is a taste of defeat that we don’t want to feel again.”
There is no easier way to restore confidence than getting back to winning ways. Lloris knows full well that a response is needed and hopes to be able to do his part in it over the coming games.
“We have to respond in the best way because the best answer we can give is to win the next few games.”
While the loss is difficult to take, it did expose some chinks in the Tottenham armour. As long as the club and the players realise it and address it, there is little reason to be worried.
As Lloris states, the season is long and akin to a marathon. Tottenham have the quality to turn things around and it is time we do that on the pitch if we want to be taken seriously as challengers.

On a personal level, Lloris too will be keen to bounce back to top form following his gaffe against Arsenal. Hopefully, he will lead from the front once again as Spurs chase a long-awaited trophy under Conte.
