Alli and Lloris to miss Liverpool game

Hugo Lloris will keep the Tottenham captaincy despite admitting guilt to a drink driving charge earlier this week, has confirmed.

Mauricio Pochettino says he has no worries about the fitness of Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.

"He doesn't feel great". He said he was guilty of this situation and it's irresponsible.

"I think if you compete and they were better you say congratulations but I think we cannot compare, make a bracket - Watford was Watford, Liverpool you can win or lose and I am not saying anything about attitude".

"Of course we have a conversation and he explained what happened".

"The moment of the team is not the best, it's a collective problem, not only one player".

"From the beginning I told you it's a massive challenge, the toughest season since we started. I take full responsibility for my actions, and it is not the example I wish to set".

"Like the man that he is, he's going to pay and accept everything".

Florence weakens but could linger for longer
The storm made landfall near Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina at 7.15 am, the National Hurricane Centre said. Unsure of what they might find when they return home, the couple went shopping for a recreational vehicle.

Spurs face Liverpool tomorrow without injured midfielder Dele Alli and goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

Spurs will have Heung-min Son available after his lengthy stint on worldwide duty with South Korea.

"It was a good feeling for me to be back in the starting XI but all of that gets ruined when the result doesn't go our way and we don't win".

Pochettino's assessment is a bit embarrassing for Tottenham's players, and even fans to hear. "It's a big point for him".

"That is so important. Today I think the attitude was very good". I want a watch or some Korean food.

"That's why the expectations and perspective are completely different to another player". Who took the risk? His perception will be "wow" and the reality is you still need to prove [yourself]. I am not going to put the finger in some player. I play football like I always have done and just mentally overcome the pain barrier.

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