Lloris: Arsenal tie is about pride

Tottenham Hotspur captain Hugo Lloris believes form won't count in their North London derby against Arsenal on Sunday.

Spurs who started the season brilliantly ahs fallen down the pecking order after their last week's defeat to Chelsea and according to the Frenchman, the team is still looking for improvements.

“We have to recognize at this moment that Chelsea are a much better team than us. But we are still looking for improvement and when we look at the potential of our squad, it's very good. 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. And because Chelsea is so good, they know each other well, they won many trophies together, the confidence is high," he said.

The keeper however insisted that form won't count when they take on arch-rivals Arsenal on Sunday and they will try to win the game.

“We will try to win this time. At the moment, both clubs, 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," he added.
