Lloris' warning to Spurs stars

Lloris' warning to Spurs stars

Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris has warned his team-mates not to get carried away despite their emphatic victory over Manchester City.

Spurs ended Pep Guardiola's perfect start in the Premier League as an own goal from Aleksandar Kolarov and Dele Alli's first-time finish helped the hosts lay down an early marker in the title race.

The visitors were unable to cope with Tottenham's relentless pressing game and the result saw Spurs move to within one point of the top of the table, while they are now the only unbeaten side left in the division.

This is also the club's best ever start to a season in the top flight, with 17 points so far, but goalkeeper Lloris insists now is the time for cool heads.

"As long as we keep the same mentality and spirit we can have ambition," Lloris said. "We have a young team with a lot of talent. We need to make sure we are not changing our minds, just being the same.

"That's why we enjoy our time at Tottenham because the spirit is excellent."
