Spurs currently sit second in the Premier League, and are only five points off leaders Leicester City. At the time of writing, they are level on points with fierce rivals Arsenal—but lead their neighbours on goal difference—while they are one points ahead of Manchester City.
Encouragingly for Tottenham fans, in their hopes of sealing a return to the Champions League, the Lilywhites are seven points clear of Louis van Gaal’s unconvincing Manchester United side in fifth.
29-year-old Lloris, a veritable veteran in Pochettino’s young side, has been one of the side’s star men, and may well need to be at his best over the coming weeks and months following an injury suffered by star centre-back Jan Vertonghen.
Spurs have shone with a series of talented young players, including the likes of 22-year-old Eric Dier, teenager Dele Alli, 22-year-old Harry Kane and 23-year-old Christian Eriksen, and Lloris has begun to explore why the team are enjoying such a successful run.
“I’ve always spoken about having the ‘basics’ in the team and we have the basics,” Lloris began, speaking to the club’s official website.
“We have the talent, we have the working mentality and we have improved a lot tactically and technically.

“Individually as well, a lot of players are improving and because we are young, some players don’t know their limit. That’s very good,” he continued.
”The competition inside the club helps push everyone even more,” Lloris asserted.
“For me – I’m 29 – I have more than 10 years behind me in professional football and I’m enjoying this moment at Tottenham because it’s very difficult at the highest level of football to keep the right balance in the team and at the moment, we’re doing that.”
