Tottenham Hotspur captain Hugo Lloris is full of belief that his side can end their poor run of form at the Emirates.
tottenham have won seven of their eight Premier League away games so far this season, their best return on the road at this stage of a top-flight season since 1960-61.
However, their record at Arsenal is less than impressive after only managing to win one of their last twenty-five games there. That victory came in November 2008 when Younes Kaboul scored a late winner as Harry Redknapp’s side came from 2-0 down to win 3-2.
Lloris admits that he is expecting a tough test against Unai Emery’s side who are unbeaten in their last seventeen matches in all competitions but has the confidence in his team mates to get a result.
Spurs are themselves in a good run of form having won their last six matches in a row that included impressive performances against Chelsea and Inter Milan.
“We are still running after a win at the Emirates… it is a hard place to get the win but I think it is possible. We believe we can do it,” Lloris told Sky Sports.
“But any positive result is still good for the team because they are still three points behind us and at the end, we want to keep them behind us.
“Arsenal have done very well at the beginning of the season, just losing two games. It’s a team who are difficult to beat with a new manager and new ideas of football and I think it is going to be a tough as every derby is.
“It is true we are in good form too. I think we improved our performance, especially in the last two games against Chelsea and Inter Milan, but every derby has its story so it is important to prepare for the game as good as we can.
“We will develop a lot of energy, a lot of passion, a lot of desire and a lot of concentration. You need to play at your best to win this game.”
