Lloris still Spurs captain despite drink drive conviction - Pochettino

[There's] No doubt he's one of the best players in England and Europe.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino urged his players to be aggressive against Liverpool, saying his team had a problem if they "crash" again.

A few days after he was charged, Lloris kept a clean sheet during a 3-0 win for Spurs against Manchester United at Old Trafford, however he was absent for their 2-1 defeat to Watford and missed France's recent global games due to a thigh injury. If not, we're not going to take a risk because he missed a lot of games and we have a lot of games to play.

Liverpool, on the other hand, have the expectations of an entire city on their shoulders.

Tottenham, meanwhile, will be without attacking midfielder Dele Alli for the clash with Liverpool because he has yet to recover from a hamstring injury sustained playing for England against Spain last week.

"We know that it's not a situation that worries us".

The ministry also earlier said it also detected missile launches from a French frigate nearby at around that time. A search and rescue operation for the remains of the Russian plane was ongoing.

"I told you after Newcastle, Fulham and Old Trafford like in Watford and today, the circumstances are the circumstances and the reality the reality". "I think he's fit, I have not read or heard what's going on around him, the most important thing for me is that we trust him".

"Of course, he's the first that regrets everything, and all that happened yesterday is not good", Pochettino said. "Of course, he doesn't feel great".

"I think everyone saw it was very clearly a penalty on Son from Mane", he said. When we talk about midfielders - because you like to use Spanish midfielders like Xavi and (Andres) Iniesta - he's like this type of player, this capacity but please he needs to take in a very positive way my words.

Having seen his side demolish Manchester United 3-0 with Harry Kane on target, Pochettino was exasperated when Spurs then gave away a one-goal lead to lose 2-1 at Watford before the worldwide break. He is punishing himself. Then we're all humans and we can all make mistakes.

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