Hugo Lloris believes Spurs can mix it with the big boys

SUPERHUMAN EFFORT: Hugo Lloris (above) and his Tottenham teammates will have to be at their best on Friday morning if they are to beat EPL leaders Chelsea at White Hart Lane.

Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is hopeful that improved character among the Tottenham squad can help them cause an upset against league leaders Chelsea on the New Year’s Day programme.

The France captain shone in Tottenham’s goalless stalemate at home to Manchester United on Sunday, but was culpable for at least one of the goals in a 3-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge earlier in the month.

Lloris’ poor goal-kick let in Didier Drogba to score the crucial second for the Blues, who visit White Hart Lane on Friday morning (Singapore time). Chelsea are currently three points clear at the top of the English Premier League table.

More daunting is the fact that Spurs have not beaten Chelsea in their last 10 meetings in all competitions and were humbled 4-0 by back in March.

But Lloris has backed Mauricio Pochettino’s side to upset their rivals and prove they are capable of mixing it with the big boys.
