Tottenham Hotspur without Dele Alli and Hugo Lloris against Liverpool

Tottenham Hotspur without Dele Alli and Hugo Lloris against Liverpool

Asked if the World Cup victor would remain as captain, Pochettino said: "Of course".

The Tottenham goalkeeper was pulled by over by police in central London last month when his Porsche was veering towards parked vehicles before going through a red light.

Hugo Lloris, who was found guilty of drink and driving a couple of weeks ago has been fined £50,000 and banned for 20 months from driving. It's a massive lesson to everyone'. Like a man that he is, he is going to accept everything'. I made a mistake.

Ahead of Saturday's important clash with Liverpool at Wembley, he said: "I am learning a lot, because we arrive after two weeks [of the worldwide break] and we didn't talk too much about Liverpool, and the most important thing is the game on Saturday".

The World Cup victor will miss this weekend's match against Liverpool with a hamstring injury but his club will not be taking any additional action.

"He's the first that told me: 'Gaffer it's a massive mistake and I need to pay, like a man'".


Alli missed England's friendly win against Switzerland on Tuesday with a hamstring strain, and Spurs have confirmed he will play no part in their meeting with Jurgen Klopp's side at lunchtime on Saturday.

"I am disappointed", Pochettino added.

"You learn that today football is not only what happens on the pitch".

There is slightly better news concerning Moussa Sissoko as the midfielder is due to resume training next week following a hamstring injury but he's still ruled out of the Liverpool game while young defender Juan Foyth is edging closer to his comeback after returning to training last week.

Pochettino said: 'Alli is a bit unlucky, he suffered an injury after 20 minutes against Spain. "I am disappointed because we are going to miss him for this game and maybe the Champions League game against Inter Milan [on September 18]". "I played him many times when I was playing with Nice".

"Because we are talking about Harry Kane everyone expects him in every action to do something different".
