7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

Tot­ten­ham goal­keeper Hugo Lloris has re­fused to rule Arse­nal out of the ti­tle race de­spite the Gun­ners sit­ting 11 points be­hind league lead­ers Le­ices­ter. Tot­ten­ham are five points adrift of Claudio Ranieri’s side and will look to try and close the gap this Satur­day when they face an in­con­sis­tent Liver­pool side. Arse­nal are a fur­ther six points be­hind Spurs, how­ever, due to their game in hand Lloris be­lieves Spurs’ north Lon­don ri­vals are still in the ti­tle pic­ture. “We can talk a bit about Arse­nal as well,” said Lloris. “They are be­hind us but have played one less game so I think the key is to be fo­cused on our­selves, don’t think about the other teams.” Fol­low­ing the trip to An­field, Tot­ten­ham face an­other tough test as they host Manch­ester United. The two games rep­re­sent a stern chal­lenge and could be piv­otal as Spurs look to win a first league ti­tle since 1961. “We have two tough games ahead with Liver­pool away and United at home and maybe we will see a bit more af­ter those games” added Lloris. “In football any­thing is pos­si­ble so we just need to play games and en­joy it with our fans.” Liver­pool host Spurs at 8.30pm UAE time on Satur­day, while Le­ices­ter play Southamp­ton on Sun­day at 4.30pm.
