Tottenham Hotspur without Dele Alli and Hugo Lloris against Liverpool

Michel Vorm will deputise for captain Lloris, who this week pleaded guilty to drink-driving in London and was fined £50,000.

Tottenham are coming off an impressive 3-0 win against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

He will miss the game against Liverpool at Wembley on Saturday, as will Dele Alli, who picked up a hamstring injury on worldwide duty.

"He's punishing himself. He feels so sorry and so bad because he knows that he made a big mistake".

Pochettino confirmed that Lloris would remain captain despite his drunk-driving case, replying "of course" when asked whether that would be the situation.

"It's a massive lesson for everyone".

"Drink-driving is completely unacceptable, I take full responsibility for my actions and it is not the example I wish to set".

While Florence has lost some of its strength, it is still considered an extremely risky and life-threatening storm. In the meantime, "treat the inland flooding just as seriously as you would the storm surge", said Clark.

"If not, we're not going to take a risk because he missed a lot of games and we have ahead of lot of games to play". Like a man that he is, he is going to accept everything'.

"I am disappointed", Pochettino added.

Alli suffered a hamstring injury against Spain in the first-half and Tottenham are privately frustrated that the midfielder then completed the game.

Tiredness could be an issue for Son, who played eight games in 26 days for his country, but his return after playing just ten minutes of Tottenham's league season so far will be greatly received by Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino.

"I told him today: 'Where is my present, Sonny?"

"First of all I want to congratulate him, because it's such an important victory to avoid the military service", he said. He has trained so hard and I am so happy with his evolution.

Pochettino was less illuminating about talk Toby Alderweireld may get a new contract. The Belgian defender, who was expected to leave this summer, is back in the fold, but his current deal expires in 2020.
