Hugo Lloris: Believes Tottenham can push for a top-four place

While Gareth Bale is expected to leave for Real Madrid before the window closes, Spurs have also spent heavily on reinforcements.

Roberto Soldado, Paulinho, Etienne Capoue and Nacer Chadli have all arrived at White Hart Lane and Lloris says they are ready to help Tottenham push for a Champions League berth.

"It is the life of football that some movement happens and you try to put them in the best condition to help the team to win and realise our objectives," the French goalkeeper told Sky Sports News ahead of Sunday's match against Swansea City.

"It is important to have a strong team so that we can challenge the other teams to finish in the top four."

Defenders Steven Caulker and William Gallas have left Tottenham this summer but Younes Kaboul has returned from a long injury lay-off and Lloris has been happy with the way they have defended so far this season.

He said: "We are happy also to have Younes back in the team.

"We try to gain confidence altogether and be strong and it is important to be focused."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
