The France goalkeeper said: "Liverpool and Man City have the experience and they are really competitive.
"I think, at the moment, there's something missing from us. We will see later in the season because things turn very quickly in football.
"The most important thing is we focus on ourselves, to get points, to get consistency in the league. And we will see where we are in the table in April, in March.
Liverpool and Man City have the experience and they are really competitive. I think, at the moment, there's something missing from us.
"That is the moment when you can win or lose European places or trophies. At the moment, we don't want to lose focus with that type of question."
Spurs drew with Arsenal in the north London derby on Sunday after suffering a shock home 1-0 defeat against Newcastle and Lloris has urged his team to improve their form at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
"Unfortunately we didn't have the start we expected, even though we got good results against City and Arsenal away from home, we should've done better against Newcastle," he said.
"We all know the importance of home games and when I talk about consistency, we have to capable of winning that type of game. There's now already a gap between [Manchester City and Liverpool] and us."
