According to ESPN Spurs captain Hugo Lloris has hailed Spurs’ mental strength after they initially fell behind against Chelsea.

Alvaro Morata headed Chelsea into into lead on the half hour but, Christian Eriksen’s superb long-range equaliser just before the great was followed by two Dele Alli strikes secured a first win in 28 years for us at Stamford Bridge, and Lloris believes the club have sent a message about their desire to return to the Champions League.

“It’s part of the game. You can never be certain of not making a mistake,”:Lloris told SFR Radio. “But above all, we stayed calm — me above all — and we had to get the job done.

Lloris added: “Christian’s talent made the difference just before half-time. It was 1-1 and the game was on.”

He added: “In spite of that, overall, I think the win is fully deserved. I think that, [on Saturday] in training, we did what we needed to do to prepare the match, and you could feel there was a lot of enthusiasm and desire to face Chelsea, and above all send a message in terms of the Champions League.”
