Hugo and Harry aiming high

Posted on 10 April 2018  - 12:45

The message is clear from skipper Hugo Lloris and Harry Kane - let’s finish as high as we can.

The players have certainly been looking up rather than behind them as a run of six wins on the trot and 14 unbeaten matches has strengthened our position in the top four of the Premier League.

That included the crucial win at Stamford Bridge on 1 April to take us eight points clear of fifth-placed Chelsea, a result we just as importantly followed up with a hard-fought three points at Stoke on Saturday.

We're still fourth, level on points but with a game in hand on Liverpool in third and four points adrift of United in second.

“We have the quality, the right spirit and the experience in the Premier League,” said skipper Hugo, who became the 11th player to reach 200 appearances in the Premier League for the Club at Stoke.

“We show character and ambition because there is still second place to play for and we will try our best to finish as high as we can in the table.”

Harry, back from an ankle injury to start at Stoke, added: “We’ve been in good form and it’s important we stay that way until the end of the season.

“The win at Chelsea was massive and that gave us a bit of a gap. Liverpool dropping points (at Everton on Saturday) helped us a bit as well but it’s up to us to keep going.

“We’ve a tough game against City coming up and we look forward to that and the rest of the matches. We have to carry on - nothing’s given to you in the Premier League so we have to keep winning.”
