Hugo Lloris has confirmed the feeling that Tottenham could not be in worse shape ahead of the North London Derby with Arsenal.
Spurs come into the tie having failed to win each of their last six matches in all competitions, and directly coming to the match after a thoroughly disappointing loss to Bayer Leverkusen, which leaves them on the verge of elimination from the Champions League at the group stage.
The Tottenham goalkeeper and club captain has now revealed his disappointment in his side’s recent slump, and dismal midweek display.
Lloris said: “We cannot be in a worse situation.
Arsenal make the long trip north to the Stadium of Light to take on Sunderland on Saturday, and will be looking to return with all three points.
The odds on Arsenal winning the game are not huge, but the form of the two sides only points to one possible result.
The Gunners come into the match having eight of their last nine matches in all competitions, with Middlesbrough the only team to come away with a spirited draw.
Sunderland come into the match in disgraceful form on the other hand, with two draws and seven losses from their nine league matches this term, picking up only one point from their four home matches.
The Premier League season kicks off in exactly one months time, and we start our campaign with a home tie against Liverpool FC.
The last time the two teams met, it ended with a third equalising goal of the game scored bye Joe Allen, denying the Gunners the full three points they had been hoping for.
The Reds led twice during the first half, only for our side to level the scores four and six minutes later, in what was a highly intense and exciting match-up.

Alvaro Morata will not be playing for Arsenal next season, after Real Madrid upped their asking price to £60 Million, which immediately saw Arsenal drop out of the betting in every online sportsbook. Juventus confirmed that Real would be triggering their right to buy-back Alvaro Morata this summer, for a fee believed to be in the region of £25 Million.
Old Lady chief executive Giuseppe Marotta said: “Real Madrid have informed us of their intention to exercise the right to buy back [Morata], we are just waiting for a written offer.”
Arsenal look likely to enjoy a busy summer of transfers, so we thought we’d give you a brief run-down of how you could make some money out of that in the coming months.

Two possible exits have been reported in the newspapers in recent months, but you will not get rich off either of these coming true. Oxlade-Chamberlain is most heavily linked with a switch currently, and is currently at evens (2.0) to leave the club before September (SkyBet).
The playing season is over for Arsenal, and it is time to prepare ourselves for the upcoming European Championships, but that doesn’t mean I will be putting my club shirt away for the summer.
Eight of our players have been selected for their respective countries provisional squads for Euro 2016, and I will be keeping a close eye on a number of them for different reasons.
Jack Wilshere is our only star set to grace the England side this summer, and while my priority will be for Jack to return from international duty injury-free, I will of course also be cheering on the Lions. I’m usually one to have a sentimental bet on our side to win the tournament, but the 9/1 (10.0) available is a little short for my liking.
Arsene Wenger has been a fantastic servant to Arsenal Football Club but is the Frenchman’s time at the club about to come to an end? Wenger has failed to inspire confidence at Arsenal since winning the Premier League back in 2004 but back-to-back FA Cup triumphs in the last two years have helped to ease the pressure on his shoulders.
However, the Gunners are on the verge of a trophy-less season and fans are rightfully angry at the lack of action taken by both the club and its manager. Wenger just doesn’t seem to have what it takes to lead Arsenal to the Premier League title and supporters are the ones to suffer most of all. Wenger still gets paid at the end of the day.
John Hartson has claimed that Arsenal are set to spend heavily this summer, so we thought we’d take a brief look into the latest speculation surrounding the club.
The former Arsenal striker claimed that Wenger knows that his time is running out to add any more Premier League titles to his record, and will invest in the close-season in order to try and achieve that.
One regular transfer target whose name gets brought up every summer is Karim Benzema, and this year will be no different. His club Real Madrid are being linked with a move to sign either Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang or Robert Lewandowski, which is said to free up the Frenchman’s signature, and of course, we are lining up a deal… Unfortunately we all know that Wenger is more likely to milk a Bingo bonus then splash the cash on this necessary addition.
The season is not over yet, and there is plenty of value to be had from our team before it comes to a close. Arsenal have had an upturn in form and confidence in recent weeks, coinciding with the emergence of Alex Iwobi in the first-team and the goalscoring return of Danny Welbeck.
Four of our five remaining games are against teams in the lower half of the table, and you could add their current league positions to total a whopping 65, proving just how strong our end of season should be.
