Cape Town - Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is adamant their north London rivals Arsenal are still in contention to win the Premier League title this season.

The Gunners are currently six point behind Spurs in second place and 11 behind Leicester City at the top of the table, but have a game in hand and Lloris believes it would be foolish to write off their chances.

"We can talk a bit about Arsenal as well," Lloris told Sky Sports News HQ. "They are behind us but have played one less game so I think the key is to be focused on ourselves, don't think about the other teams."

Tottenham have arguably the most difficult run in to the end of the season with matches against Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea among their final seven fixtures of the season.

Spurs will have a far better indication of their title credentials after the next two weeks as they take on the Reds at Anfield this weekend, followed by welcoming United to White Hart Lane on 10 April.

"We have two tough games ahead with Liverpool away and Manchester United at home and maybe we will see a bit more after those games," added Lloris.

"In football anything is possible so we just need to play games and enjoy it with our fans."
