Tottenham vs Liverpool: Spurs without Alli and Lloris for Reds clash

Only we need to try, how he understands that it was a mistake. "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]".

But Spurs can call on Son Heung-Min, who left for the Asian Games after the opening Premier League fixture at Newcastle and won a gold medal that has exempted him from military service in South Korea.

The Frenchman was fined a sum of £50,000 by the magistrate after he pled guilty in front of the court and Spurs manager Pochettino has backed his captain to accept the consequences and pay the price for the "costly" mistake. Then [we must accept] we are men and women and of course we can...

England coach Gareth Southgate had said he expected him to have recovered by the time Spurs took on Liverpool, but Pochettino has confirmed that is not the case. I told him today where is my present Sonny? "Of course he doesn't feel great", Pochettino told reporters in a press conference.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has forgiven Hugo Lloris. He said he was guilty of this situation and it's irresponsible. He made a mistake and he's suffering all the punishment of society.

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 global break] and we didn't talk too much about Liverpool, and the most important thing is the game on Saturday".

"It is a massive lesson for everyone - he said 'gaffer, it is a massive lesson for me".

Pochettino also insists he has no concerns about the form of Harry Kane, who has made a sluggish start to the season after his World Cup exertions. He has trained so hard and I am so happy with his evolution. "It's our fifth season at Tottenham and if someone knows him really well, I think we do".

"We are in a situation that is under control".
