'This win can give us the power to finish strongly...'

Hugo Lloris believes the nature of Sunday’s win against City can drive us on for the final five matches of the season.

'This win can give us the power to finish strongly...'

We were 1-0 down against the reigning champions with 15 minutes remaining when Clint Dempsey levelled and sparked a spell of three goals in seven minutes to turn the game around.

Jermain Defoe and Gareth Bale also netted to land three precious points in the race for a place in the top four of the Premier League.

“We changed the result and found the victory,” said Hugo, who made a couple of key saves from Carlos Tevez (pictured above) and Edin Dzeko with the score at 1-0.

“We conceded early and after that, at 1-0 down, it was difficult for us but the game changed in the second half. The bench made the difference and that’s always a good sign.

“It’s an important win because it showed we have good team spirit. It was a great game, a great performance I hope it will give us the power to finish strongly.”
