Hugo Lloris: "This is more than a game"

Hugo Lloris has underlined the importance of Sunday’s Premier League clash against rejuvenated Manchester United at Wembley (4.30pm).
United have won five out of five - four in the Premier League - since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over from Jose Mourinho in December.
At the same time, we’ve won nine of our last 11 in all competitions, losing just once - and the draw was against Barcelona at the Nou Camp to take us through to the last 16 of the Champions League.
Skipper Hugo said: “Every game when you face this type of opponent... you know they are also a challenger for a place in the top four so it’s more than just a game.
“The matches with direct confrontation between these teams are very important.
“It’s the type of game you want to enjoy because Manchester United represent a lot of things, a massive club with great players, so it’s easy to find the motivation for this game.
“They are in a good dynamic in the last few games. It looks like their confidence is back and it’s normal - we expect a tough game. As I said, it’s more than three points because they are still in the race for the top four and that’s our main target, so we need to keep pushing and try to win this game.”
