Hugo Lloris to keep captaincy confirms Mauricio Pochettino

Tottenham’s Dele Alli Fully Fit & Will Be Available For Champions League Clash Vs Inter

Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris will be missing for "several weeks" with a thigh injury, but will remain in his role as captain when he returns to full fitness, confirmed Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino on Thursday. "Hopefully it will be OK and he will be available again soon like Dele Alli".

The 22-year-old was released from the Three Lions' squad on Monday ahead of the friendly win over Switzerland and returned to Tottenham to be further assessed by their medical team.

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

However, Tottenham have been handed a major blow this afternoon after confirming that Alli's hamstring injury will in fact keep the attacking midfielder out of the game this weekend.

Moussa Sissoko's return is also imminent, with the French midfielder return to training anticipated to occur next week.

Alli's absence will leave a huge void needing to be filled in Mauricio Pochettino's team and it will be interesting to see who comes in to replace the England worldwide this weekend.

The Daily Mail reports that Tottenham are hopeful that the stopper will regain his place from Michel Vorm for Liverpool's visit to Wembley on Saturday as Pochettino's men look to end the Reds' own flawless start to the campaign.

'Of course he doesn't feel great. He said he is guilty of this situation and is responsible. He made a mistake & has suffered the punishment of society.

"(We are) disappointed because we are going to miss him for maybe this game and against Inter Milan in Champions League", said Pochettino.
