'We have to show more' – Lloris admits Spurs are lacking 'confidence' amid 'difficult season'

Hugo Lloris has urged more from Tottenham’s players after admitting the club are ‘lacking confidence’ following a ‘disappointing season’.

Jose Mourinho’s side currently sit eighth in the Premier League and seven points adrift of the Champions League places following last weekend’s 1-1 draw at Burnley, the stalemate at Turf Moor extending the club’s winless run to five fixtures in all competitions.

The north London side have struggled in the absence of the injured Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min, and Lloris insists his side must ‘stay positive’ after a disappointing first-half performance against Burnley.

“All the players were angry with the first-half performance,” Lloris told Sky Sports. “We could talk for many hours about what happened, but we have to show more.

“We have to stay positive and in the second half we could have won it. I don’t know what’s going to happen between now and the end of the season, but we have to keep faith.

“We have stopped the negative run, but it’s not enough because we wanted to win.”

The Spurs captain admits the club are lacking confidence following a ‘difficult’ period at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, but insists the players are doing all they can as they bid to salvage the campaign.

“We’ve had a very difficult season,” Lloris added.

“We had a bad start, a new manager, a lot of injured players and you can feel that things are against us.

“You can see players fighting and giving their best. The confidence is not right up there. But we are working to finish the season as well as we can.”
