Hugo Lloris has called on Tottenham to make their quality count as they chase a top-four breakthrough.

Spurs drew 1-1 at West Brom on Saturday to extend their unbeaten run to 14 games and set a new club record in the Premier League.

They have not lost since the opening day against Manchester United but are yet to crack the top four this season after eight draws in the streak.

Dele Alli's opener was cancelled out by James McClean and, with Spurs lying fifth, Lloris knows victory over the Newcastle next weekend is vital.

"To get benefit of this game and the last game (a 0-0 draw with Chelsea) we need to get three points against Newcastle," said the goalkeeper, with Spurs also hosting Monaco in the Europa League on Thursday.
