Lloris ’emotionally drained’ ahead of Irons

LlorisSpurs goalkeeper and captain Hugo Lloris has admitted he needs to he needs to refocus and recover ahead of the Irons visit on Sunday.

And the France goalkeeper declared himself ’emotionally drained’as he prepares to take off the Hammers.

With over 60 per cent of the Spurs squad having been on international duty the Hammers certainly have the edge in terms of fitness, preparation and emotional stability.

Lloris said: “We have to thank the English for the reception they gave us, for their support (at Wembley). What they did for us was very strong, very moving. It was big of them.

“The last three days, with the preparations we’ve had, had clearly taken something out of us. But the result wasn’t the most important thing about this evening. It was secondary.

“Now we have to go back to our clubs, every one of us, refocus and recover. There will be better days than this ahead, for all of us.”
