The French custodian has urged to bag the three points before heading on to the international break.

Ahead of the North London derby – one of the most awaited fixtures of the season, Tottenham Hotspur skipper Hugo Lloris has expressed his readiness to face Arsenal at the Emirates. In his seven seasons with the Spurs, Lloris established himself as a cult hero within the fan following, leading the team to some ecstatic victories over the years.

However, a win at the Emirates Stadium is a box left unticked in the Frenchman’ records and he is rearing to go once again. “It’s always the type of game we live with intensity and passion,” said Lloris.

“We know there are a lot of expectations and it’s the type of game we all love to play.”

Spurs have been tipped to win their maiden Premier League trophy since the past couple of seasons and with the exciting transfers they have made this summer, they seem to be one of the deadliest teams in England.

Interestingly, Spurs and Arsenal have both lost during their previous gameweek against Newcastle United and Liverpool respectively and thus there is a lot of pressure built up on both as they head onto the Derby.

“It’s always an important game and even more as both teams are chasing the same ambitions, more or less. That makes things even more intense,” Lloris continued, “I can tell you, from the inside, for sure, we all want to bounce back and this game is the easiest way because you don’t need extra motivation. It is natural.”

With the international break approaching, Lloris has urged that it is important to bag the three points before everyone heads out for international duties.
