Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris believes the team must improve in front of goal if they are to build on an encouraging start to the season.

Mauricio Pochettino's team are unbeaten in the Premier League since the opening weekend but missed chances cost the team in the early weeks of the season as they failed to turn draws into victories.

Spurs striker Harry Kane has struggled to find the form which produced 31 goals for the team last season, but France international Lloris insists other players have to contribute more.

Defender Eric Dier and midfielder Christian Eriksen are Tottenham's top scorers in the Premier League with two goals each.

Spurs have scored six goals in their last two Premier League games but have managed 11 in total this season and Lloris is hoping they can convert their chances when they host Liverpool this weekend, after a profligate display in the 2-2 draw with Swansea in the last game.

"If we have to improve on one aspect of our game it's in front of goal - we have to score more," the 28-year-old said.

"Again at Swansea we had so much space and so many chances but we need to be more clinical in front of goal.

"It's not only about one player but all the attacking players - they need to get into the box and be more aggressive with a desire to score.

"The rest will come, though, if we keep the same attitude and behaviour. If we keep playing the same way with the same attitude then we're going to win a lot of games."
