Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris added insult to injury for Arsenal after declaring their clash with Liverpool will pose a much tougher test, the Mirror reports.

Spurs claimed a crucial 2-1 victory in the North London derby at White Hart Lane on Sunday that lifted them back above Chelsea into third and left the Gunners with a mountain to climb if they’re to qualify for next season’s Champions League.

And while Lloris basked in the glory of a Derby victory he urged his team mates to remain focused before admitting the trip to Anfield is one he considers a daunting assignment for Andre Villas-Boas’ side.

“We don’t know what can happen so we have to keep going, not look at the other teams and be focused on ourselves,” the French international stated.

“But it will be another game next Sunday. Liverpool are playing maybe the best football in the Premier League at this moment. They proved that in their last game against Wigan. It will be a very difficult game but very exciting game in Anfield.

The French stopper also reiterated that now is the time to kick on and that Champions League football is far from being sewn up for the Lilywhites.

“The season is not finished,” he added.

“There are 10 games to go so we have to keep concentration and be focused on the end of the season.

“Of course it’s better to be in this position than Arsenal although we have to keep a lucidity of the situation. The most important thing is to be in the Champions League next season and I think we have to keep our ambition.”
