Speaking at his prematch news conference, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino said Alli had a hamstring problem while Lloris could be out for several weeks with a thigh injury.

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 worldwide games due to a thigh injury.

Spurs will be without captain Hugo Lloris and midfielder Dele Alli for Saturday's lunchtime clash with Liverpool.

The head coach added: "Of course he's the first that regrets everything, and all that happened yesterday is not good. He made a mistake and is suffering, and is punishing himself". If people don't want to take it's not [that] we can help.

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

Klopp will be hoping that no more of his players return from worldwide duty injured, but Spurs have already revealed that two otherwise-guaranteed starters are unavailable.

Pochettino was pleased a gamble in allowing a key player to miss a month of the season has been rewarded.

"I think Lucas Moura was the key moment to get the confidence the team needs".

"That is so important".

He told RMC Sport: "Do I have a return date?"

Yet, Pochettino insisted that flaws were also on show at Old Trafford and believes that the heavy workload a number of his first-team stars undertook during the World Cup have taken a toll.

'That's why expectations and perspective are completely different to other players. Who took the risk? "I don't know what you expect from me, or what you think my answer should be", he said. I do not read and do not listen to what is going on around. "Of course I am learning a lot", he said.

"If you watch the Watford game again, you see we played so slow, so sloppy, from the beginning".

"He already knew in the moment that it was a big mistake".
