Lloris and Alli to miss Liverpool game

Lloris and Alli to miss Liverpool game

Joshua Harris, director of campaigns for British road safety charity Brake, said it was disappointing to see a role model such as Lloris admitting to breaking the law by drink driving.

Asked whether Lloris, who was found to be twice the legal limit and had a passenger in the vehicle, would remain captain, Pochettino said: "Of course".

"First of all I want to congratulate him, because it's such an important victory to avoid the military service", Pochettino said.

His teammate, Dele Alli, has also been ruled out of the Liverpool game after picking up a hamstring injury while on global duty with England. He's the first that told me: "'Gaffer, it's a massive mistake, and I need to pay like a man'". However, Dan Kilpatrick reports that Lloris will remain as club captain, despite speculation he could lose the armband.

"We have had some fantastic players, the likes of Stevie [Gerrard], [Luis] Suarez and [Philippe] Coutinho, but now as a team everybody is right at it and that comes from the manager".

It completed a sweep for the Storm, who know they couldn't have done it without the 6-foot-2 post player. Many of them reserved special praise for Breanna Stewart , the WNBA and WNBA Finals MVP.

Alli suffered a hamstring injury and Lloris a thigh injury.

"He's a little bit unlucky", Pochettino told Sky Sports News. A lot of people play our games when we play Champions League football and that's our job, that we do the best we can do in all those games.

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. After four weeks, when the fitness levels looked quite OK - it got better and better for one player or another - then we had to send them away [on worldwide duty].

"I know that's very hard to do but if they could go into February, March, April without it, I think they could have a real chance if they had free weeks".

"That's why the expectations and perspective are completely different to another player".
