Spurs have emerged as the closest challengers to Arsenal in the race for a finish in the Premier League’s top four this season.


While some of the results have been inconsistent, Tottenham look more organised under Conte and they recently beat Manchester City at the Etihad as well.



Lloris stressed that despite some poor results there is a real feeling inside the Tottenham squad that they are improving under Conte and the players can really understand what he wants from them.


He believes Spurs have evolved under the Italian and are progressing towards their common goal of being in the Champions League again as soon as possible.



The goalkeeper told French sports daily L’Equipe: “Before projecting yourself, you have to take everything there is to take from a coach like him.


“February was a little more difficult but we, inside the team, feel that there is progress, a real understanding of the structure he wants to give and I think that something is happening.



“He brought his passion, which can be extreme, his system, and his style of play and in four months, which is very little, we feel there has been an evolution.


“We hope that it will lead to a good end to the season.


“With him, we have a common goal – to surpass ourselves and to relive the great moments in the Champions League.


“He lives football 200 per cent, and there are plenty of things to learn from him and keep.”


Conte has not shied away from taking shots at Tottenham’s recruitment and his January signings in Rodrigo Bentancur and Dejan Kulusevski have made an impact.
