Now, they are talking about the whole team, about the present and the future.We can feel we are improving step by step. We are focused on this season but we have to think about next season as well because we want to be consistent challengers for years. Its not about one good season, its about being consistent. To play Champions League football would be a good step for the club, the players and the fans, and in the next few years the new stadium will be coming, so its all positive for Spurs.While Lloris has been an integral player for Spurs over the last few seasons, he says much of the credit for the teams success is down to head coach Mauricio Pochettino, who took charge in 2014.The manager deserves a lot of credit for what the club is doing, said Lloris. He has changed a lot of things on the training ground, tactically and technically, he has his philosophy, and all the players are the right profile for him. On the pitch we are doing well, but the manager and the staff prepare us in the best way.

We enjoy the way we are playing.Following their clash with West Brom on Monday, Spurs finish the season with trips to Chelsea and Newcastle, either side of a home game against Southampton. Hugo Lloris kept a clean sheet last time out as Spurs beat Stoke 4-0 In three of their four games they play after Leicester, but Lloris said: The key is to be focused on ourselves. We know if we are consistent until the end we can be rewarded, of course its not just up to us, but Leicester should drop points, if not then they deserve the trophy.We are in a good position and situation and it is a great chance for us. So we need to carry on and we will see what happens at the end of the season. Nobody can guess what will happen.We need to be consistent and not think about what is happening around us.
